When you visit any of our four clinics in Coquitlam, Langley, Maple Ridge or Surrey, our team at Greater Vancouver Orthodontics wants your first visit to be as comfortable, educational and as stress-free as possible.
During your first consultation at a Greater Vancouver Orthodontics clinic in Coquitlam, Langley, Maple Ridge or Surrey, BC, you will meet with your orthodontist and our patient coordinator. You'll also have digital 'before' photographs taken. After we've completed a full review your dental and overall health history, the orthodontists will do a full examination, in order to accurately assess your orthodontic needs, and to determine the best course of treatment to undertake.
Next, we'll explain the orthodontic process to you, and present you with a video that outlines the various evaluation and record-taking steps we'll go through during the course of your treatment.
We will carefully review with you your orthodontic treatment options, the duration of treatment, and the costs associated with each choice. And of course, we'll address any of the questions and concerns you have. During this initial consultation, we will discuss the responsibilities of all the parties involved in treatment. This includes our team, of course, but also the patient.
In cases where the patient is too young to be fully responsible for his or her role in the treatment process, we ask that at least one of the patient's parent is present for the initial consultation.
For those of you interested in Invisalign in Vancouver, our orthodontists will be glad to perform an assessment to determine whether you are a candidate. We regularly treat patients using Invisalign and can evaluate your smile to determine whether or not Invisalign is right for you.
