WELCOME TO OUR OFFICE!
We are pleased to have the opportunity to share information with you about our practice, and the many benefits that orthodontics can provide for you. We hope this website will answer many of your important questions and make your first visit to our office more meaningful.
INITIAL CONSULTATION APPOINTMENT
At this time we will clinically assess your orthodontic needs and advise you of recommendations regarding treatment. We will also give you an estimate of treatment costs.
DIAGNOSTIC RECORDS APPOINTMENT
Each individual’s needs are different, thus requiring a customized treatment plan based upon a complete diagnosis. Diagnostic records will be taken to enable Dr. Walton to study your orthodontic problems in greater detail and determine the specific corrective procedures necessary to accomplish our treatment goals. We will take impressions for study models, photographs of the face and teeth, a panogram, and a cephalometric X-ray. After Dr. Walton has analyzed the records, he will discuss his findings and specific treatment recommendations with you. This time is set aside to address any concerns and answer questions relating to treatment or office procedures.
It will be necessary to have your teeth cleaned and all cavities filled before your braces are placed. If you do not have a dentist, we will be happy to recommend one, as it will be necessary to maintain regular six-month cleanings and cavity checks throughout orthodontic treatment.
OUR APPOINTMENT POLICY
Appointments are scheduled at intervals for maintaining the best treatment progress and to prevent the occurrence of complicating or negative factors. Since most of our patients are of school age, it is necessary to schedule many appointments during school hours. With the implementation of the latest technologies, we can normally keep appointment intervals from 6 to 10 weeks. Additionally, most cases can be completed in 20 to 24 months. Importantly, this means less time away from school or out of the office for our patients and their parents.
We try to make orthodontic treatment as affordable as possible for all those who desire a beautiful smile. We offer flexible payment plans featuring low down payments and no interest monthly payments.
We look forward to meeting you and informing you of your orthodontic possibilities. Our goal is to make your orthodontic experience a positive one, the benefits of which will last a lifetime.
