First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of complimentary Digital X-rays, a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This 40-minute exam will give us valuable insight into your orthodontic needs. Dr. Barlow will use these tools and this time to develop the best appropriate treatment plan specifically for you.

During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

We can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination. We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. In-depth planning on our part leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

If you have orthodontic insurance, please bring your insurance card so that we may verify your orthodontic benefits. By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you a more specific estimate of cost for your treatment.
