Thank you for considering us with your orthodontic treatment! The very best smile, the most improvement possible in the alignment and function of teeth and jaws, and best facial appearance is our desire for all our patients. We are happy to have this opportunity to assist you.
Your first visit will be an examination appointment. We want to address your orthodontic concerns. At this appointment, Dr. Lubberts and staff will answer your questions about orthodontics and orthodontic treatment, and possible treatment options will be discussed. An estimate of time and fee required for correction treatment will be made.
If now is not the right time for orthodontic treatment, you or your child will be placed on observation. At your convenience, you will be asked to return for another appointment in 4 to 12 months, as suggested by Dr. Lubberts.
If now is the right time for treatment, thenext step is a complete diagnostic work-up. Diagnostic records consist of models of the teeth and supporting bone, facial and oral photographs, and specific orthodontic radiographs and tracings.
After these records are analyzed, a consultation appointment, done by phone or in person with Dr. Lubberts will be scheduled. At this appointment, your questions and concerns will be addressed in detail, and the full records will be reviewed with you. The best treatment plan will then be decided with you.
Again, we welcome you and look forward to meeting you at the examination appointment!
