Our New Patient Process


Initial Visit

At your first visit, the doctor will evaluate your smile and teeth to determine how we can address your concerns and create the best smile for you. We will provide a written cost estimate and discuss various treatment options.



In order to fully analyze and plan your case, our doctors require a full set of records, which includes models, x-rays, and photographs. After these records are taken, both doctors will spend dedicated time to review and discuss your case to decide the best and most efficient treatment options.



We will invite you back to review our findings and confirm the best treatment options. We purposely set aside time to fully analyze your case to make sure we decide on the best treatment option. We treat each one of our patients like family and we work hard to provide the best care that we can.
