What to Expect During Your First Visit
Your first visit to Webb Family Orthodontics will take about an hour. This consultation and exam are complimentary! The visit typically includes all of the following.
- Meet Our Team: You’ll meet the Webb Family Orthodontics team, including Dr. Brian Webb and our registered dental assistants. We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, so we know you’ll feel comfortable here.
- Your Exam: Your exam will include a thorough check-up performed by Dr. Webb. This exam will often include intraoral photos, and a panoramic X-ray may be taken if Dr. Webb feels that it’s needed.
- Review of Records: Dr. Webb will review the photos, X-rays and notes to determine the problems and formulate treatment plans. If you have previous dental and orthodontic records, Dr. Webb will also review those at this time so that he can create the most effective possible solution for your particular issues.
- Discussion of Treatment Options: In many cases, there are several different options for treatment. Dr. Webb will discuss your best options and help you decide which would work best for you.
What Happens After the Consultation?
After your consultation with Dr. Webb, you have a couple of options if treatment is indicated: immediate treatment or delayed treatment. If you want to begin your treatment plan right away, that can usually be arranged. In fact, you may be able to start your treatment that same day if desired. The Webb Family Orthodontics team can review your dental insurance coverage and discuss payment options with you. We offer flexible payment terms to make teeth straightening affordable and accessible for anyone who needs it. If you’re getting braces, Invisalign or another type of treatment on the day of your consultation, it usually takes less than an extra hour to start the treatment.
If you’re not quite ready to begin your treatment process yet, we can place you in the Webb Family Orthodontics Observation Program. While you’re in the observation program, we will monitor your smile over time until it’s the right time for you to begin treatment.
Scheduling Appointments: How Often Will You See the Orthodontist?
Orthodontic appointments are scheduled according to your specific needs. Most patients should plan to see Dr. Webb for a checkup around every four to eight weeks. These appointments are very important because they allow Dr. Webb to closely monitor your progress and to make any adjustments necessary for optimal teeth straightening. These orthodontic appointments are separate from your regular teeth cleaning appointments. Dr. Webb will recommend the proper intervals for teeth cleanings and any other necessary dental care.
