First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 30-45 minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.

During the initial examination for each patient, Dr. Nunn will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment.

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any baby or permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

If treatment is indicated, we will schedule an appointment to gather diagnostic records. While we can often answer general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the x-rays, models and photographs. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Completed Patient Information/Medical History forms
  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months
  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card. By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs.
