We have a lot in store for you during your first visit to Walt Orthodontics. Our goal for this consult appointment is to show you our practice, teach you about your/your child’s teeth and bite, determine if orthodontic treatment is required, and inform you of your options accordingly.
There is no charge for this consult appointment, which will take approximately 45 minutes. To save time, we ask that you complete the health history form online prior to the appointment. If unable to, please arrive 10 minutes early and we will provide you with the forms.
Since every case is unique and requires special attention, we will start by taking photos of your/your child’s face and teeth. This will enable Dr. Walt to accurately analyze your case. If more information is required, we may take one or two x-rays as well.
If you/your child are ready for orthodontic treatment Dr. Walt will personally go over all the treatment options and come up with a treatment plan together with you. We will also give you a financial quote and work out a payment plan that fits within your budget. We finance treatment in-house and do not charge any interest. If you have orthodontic insurance we will help you fill out your forms so that you may get reimbursed from your insurance provider as per your coverage.
If your child is not ready for orthodontics, it would be our pleasure to monitor him/her yearly at no charge while tooth development and growth are still occurring until such time when treatment is indicated.
