What To Expect As A New Patient
We want to welcome you to The Best Braces! We are happy to help you on your journey to a beautiful, straight smile. We want to share more information about what new patients can expect when they visit our office for the first time.
Your Consultation Appointment
The first visit to our office is a consultation appointment that will take 60–90 minutes. Be sure to arrive about 15 minutes early and bring all of the new patient paperwork. Bringing these documents completed will shorten the time you are in our office. During your consultation, we will perform a preliminary examination, discuss treatment options, and help you make an informed decision. At your first appointment, we will:
- Introduce you to our team
- Review your forms and discuss any relevant history
- Take necessary photographs and X-rays
- Perform an examination and explain your diagnosis
- Devise your treatment plan
- Review your payment options
- Schedule your next appointment
First Treatment Appointment
During your first treatment appointment, we will install the appliance needed for your treatment. This may include braces or expanders. We will discuss all instructions and any restrictions you may have during treatment. This is a great time to ask questions or ask for further explanation if you do not understand something about your treatment. It is important that you schedule your next appointment to make sure your treatment plan continues to move forward.
The only treatment that will look a little different is for patients who choose our in-house clear aligners. Since we are able to design and construct the aligners in our office, patients can leave on the same day as their consultation with their aligners in hand, ready to start treatment.
If you are in Southfield, MI or the surrounding area and interested in learning more about how we can help you or a loved one, be sure to contact our office to schedule a consultation. We would love to welcome you to The Best Braces family.
