We look forward to meeting you at your first visit to our practice. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient’s orthodontic needs are different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.
Your first visit will consist of an initial examination and a discussion of your potential treatment options. This important visit will allow Dr. Salaita to determine if this is the right time to begin treatment. If together, we feel you’re ready for treatment, we could potentially get started that day!
During your first visit, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. Please remember to bring your forms filled out ahead of time, if possible. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
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 permanent teeth need to be removed?
How long will treatment take?
How much will it cost?
What are my payment options?
We believe that good orthodontic care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. We feel it’s important for you to meet Dr. Salaita from day one because we want you to know we are here for you every step of the way. With you, we’ll develop a comprehensive strategy for your orthodontic needs and care. From the first appointment, our goal is to treat you like family. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile!
