YOUR FIRST VISIT

During your first visit, Dr. Chung will perform a thorough orthodontic examination and will make recommendations as to the need and/or timing of treatment. There will be no charge for your initial consultation examination. Even if you are not sure if orthodontics is right for you or if this is the best time, Dr. Chung welcomes the opportunity to show you what is possible and what is involved so you can make an informed decision.

If treatment is indicated and you would like to proceed, diagnostic records can be taken at your initial visit in order to save you time and start your treatment as soon as you would like. If time does not permit, we will schedule a separate appointment for diagnostic records. Complete diagnostic records typically include impressions (molding) of

first visit

the teeth, digital photos of the teeth, and two digital x-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient.

During the initial visit, we can provide you with detailed treatment options including length of time involved, types of orthodontic appliances indicated, costs, payment options, and insurance considerations. Generally, orthodontic treatment fees are financed by the practice with no interest and affordable monthly payments over a period of one to two years.

To make sure your first visit is as efficient as possible, please bring the completed new patient form.


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER FIRST VISIT?


The second appointment typically involves "bonding" or placing appliances (braces, expanders, etc), which typically takes 40-60 minutes. By utilizing a state of the art, "indirect bonding" procedure, the bonding appointment will take considerably less time. You will then see us at regular intervals of 4-6 weeks. Those adjustment appointments are usually 15 to 30 minutes long.

After bonding appointment, Dr. Chung will send out a personal diagnostic letter (including digital X-rays and diagnosis) to your general dentist to inform him or her of our findings and treatment recommendations. By working closely with your general dentist, we can help you achieve your ideal smile. We are in close communication with your general dentist throughout your treatment in our office.
