Before treatment starts, complete diagnostic records will be scheduled, which requires 30 to 60 minutes. All diagnostic records are performed in our office. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, plaster study models of the teeth, photos of the patient's face and teeth, and x-rays.
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes from one to two hours. You'll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes. Our regular office hours are Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 5 PM. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Cancel only if it is an emergency. It is difficult to reschedule you since most appointments are made 4 to 8 weeks in advance.
