What to expect on your first visit.
How old should you be for an initial orthodontic consult?
While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommend visiting the orthodontist around age 7. By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for the orthodontist to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery. But, we often see first time patients who are pre-teen, teenager, and adults!
Before your visit
Before your first visit, we recommend bringing in a completed Health History form, as well as any insurance you may have. During your consultation, our financial coordinator will review your insurance coverage with you.
Fill out the appropriate form at the bottom of the page, and bring it to our office at your first appointment.
