Office Visits

Our primary goal is to give you a healthy, straight, beautiful smile. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision. We will work with you to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We use the latest technology, and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you customized individual care.

Your complimentary initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam to determine which treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be able to answer any questions you have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you.

What happens after the initial consultation?

After your initial consultation, we will schedule your first appointment for our orthodontic assistant to take a cephalometric X-ray and photographs of your teeth, and then take impressions of your teeth to make plaster study models of them.

At the next apointment, Dr. Klima or Dr. Toms will place your new orthodontic appliances. This appointment generally takes about two hours, and during this time, we will make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling appointments

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you.

If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please call to let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our office and our receptionist will assist you.

If you provide us with your email address, you can sign up to view your account, receive your appointment reminders, and confirm your appointments online. We will never share your email address.

If you change your email address, please let us know.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we can coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
