What to Expect at Your First Appointment at Braces Omaha
The initial appointment is performed at no charge to you and will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This exciting and important visit will address the orthodontic needs of you or your child and usually takes about 50 minutes. We would appreciate it if you would arrive a few minutes early to complete the necessary paperwork.
Diagnostic Records and Treatment Planning
Your first orthodontic appointment in our practice will be a time for both the patient and the doctor to gather important information. We will have you fill out a health history. Please alert the practice if you have a medical condition that may be of concern (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and/or joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (e.g., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
In addition to a complete orthodontic examination, X-rays and other images may be taken so that Dr. Stevens has the most accurate information to create your ideal treatment plan. This is also your opportunity to learn more about the different treatment options we provide, such as Invisalign®. Dr. Stevens feels it is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.
Finally, we will discuss the fee for your treatment to make sure it fits into your budget. It is important to us that you have a clear understanding of what orthodontic treatment can do for you, how much it will cost, and how long it will take. We pride ourselves in educating our patients and encourage you to ask any questions you may have. We want you to leave our practice feeling confident and excited about the possibilities a new smile can bring! In addition, be sure to bring your dental insurance information — we are happy to help you maximize your insurance coverage for our services. More and more plans have begun to offer benefits for orthodontic treatment.
