Your first visit to our office will be a free exam for you or your child. The doctor will carefully examine the teeth for a wide range of possible orthodontic problems, such as crowding, cross-bite, gaps, etc. Once the doctor has a clear picture of the most likely course of treatment, we’ll sit down with you to discuss what type of treatment is necessary, how long it will take, and estimate how much it will cost. You’ll understand everything you need to know in order to decide whether to proceed with treatment or not.
After your complimentary exam, if you decide to proceed with treatment, our staff will then take records to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, study models of the teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and X-rays. Dr. Aljanabi uses this information to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. Moreover, these records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
After the doctor has thoroughly evaluated your diagnostic records, we’ll explain your treatment to you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.
After the records appointment, we’ll be ready to schedule the appointment to install the new appliances. Getting appliances placed usually takes one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals four to eight weeks apart for adjustment appointments, which usually last about 30 minutes.
Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
You are not only our patient but also a member of our extended family. Thank you for choosing us to be your orthodontic care provider.
