First Visit

At Lovinggood Orthodontics, we are always excited about meeting new patients! Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.

During the initial examination, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of your orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well!

  1. Is there an existing condition that orthodontics can correct?

  2. Is treatment needed now, or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?

  3. What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?

  4. Do any teeth need to be removed?

  5. How long will treatment take?

  6. How much will it cost?

  7. What are my payment options?

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial exam, we will address specific needs after a careful analysis of the diagnostic records. 

Immediately following your appointment, you will visit with our Treatment Coordinator to discuss treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements. We insist that our patients leave our office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, the treatment plan and treatment duration.

We know your time is  valuable. To save you time at your initial consultation, please be sure to bring your insurance card, a valid driver's license or identification card and the completed new patient form which can be found HERE. We are excited about meeting you and are committed to making your first visit a positive experience!
