What Happens at your First Orthodontist Visit with Utah Orthodontic Care

At Utah Orthodontic Care, our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and provide the right kind of affordable treatment for all of your orthodontic needs. We have assembled the best teams in each of our locations to provide you a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Whether you’re a child, teen, or adult needing orthodontics, we love meeting and getting to know all of our new patients. That’s why we set aside an hour for your initial visit. Here is what you can expect when you meet with us for the first time.

Answering Questions

We know that you have a lot of questions, so we will spend time introducing ourselves, getting to know you, and then addressing the questions that you have about your orthodontic treatment. We will likely answer questions such as:

    • How can orthodontics help you?
    • What types of braces do we offer?
    • What is Invisalign and are you a candidate for this treatment?
    • What are your treatment and procedure options?
  • When is the best time for treatment, now or later?
  • How long might treatment last?
  • How much will treatment cost?
  • How can we make treatments like braces affordable with financing?

We also encourage you to write down a list of your own questions and bring it with you to your visit. If you bring in your insurance information, we may be able to provide a more accurate estimate of the cost of your treatment.

Diagnosing Your Orthodontic Problem

For our first-time patients, we often like to perform a diagnostic exam to facilitate treatment. Diagnostics often take only about a half hour to complete. Depending on your condition, we may take X-rays and photos of your mouth during the exam, as well as impressions for our records. This exam will help us to better tailor your treatment to your individual needs. Early diagnosis of potential orthodontic problems is important. That’s why we recommend early first visits to our patients so that we can plan for any potential difficulties.

Free Consultation Visit

Although we hope to end your first visit by giving you a clear understanding what lies ahead for your treatment, we may also schedule a free consultation visit with you to discuss your options in-depth. During this visit, we will discuss orthodontic financing and determine low payment plans to give you and your family more flexibility in budgeting. We may also set a time frame for your treatments and visits to the office location nearest you.
