When visiting your Vancouver orthodontist for the first time, the orthodontist will determine the nature of your misalignment issues, and your treatment options will be reviewed with you.
During your first consultation, you will get to meet our team, discuss the goals of your smile, and learn about the condition of your alignment.
It is a good idea to arrive to your appointment 5 to 10 minutes early to give yourself enough time to fill out the necessary medical and dental history forms.
The Examination & Consultation
After you've finished filling out your forms, your orthodontist will sit with you and discuss your treatment needs and goals. He will then conduct a thorough exam of your mouth, jaws, head, and take x-rays.
Once the examination is complete, your orthodontist will recommend the best course of orthodontic action based on what he has learned about you and your oral health.
If you have any questions, your orthodontist will be happy to provide you with answers as well as advice and facts you need to make an informed choice about your orthodontic treatment.
If you're ready to start treatment, your orthodontist will begin to prepare for it. Otherwise, you can go home, consider your options, and initiate treatment when you’ve made up your mind.
You can book your next appointment with our front desk before you leave, or call us at a later date, as you prefer.
