Office Visits

Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you've always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

EVERY SMILE STARTS WITH AN INITIAL CONSULTATION!

Your initial consultation is always complimentary and comprehensive. At this appointment, you will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Briggs and his team to share your goals. Dr. Briggs will perform a full head and neck examination and x-rays will be taken as needed. An explanation of the findings, treatment options and any limitations will be given to you at that time. We promise to pay close attention to your personal concerns and goals and then provide you with treatment options that accommodate your goals and lifestyle. We will also let you know the total treatment cost and present your financial options including our no-interest payment plan. 

We want you to feel comfortable with the treatment options we give you. Our team will be glad to answer any questions and we will provide all of the information you need to determine which treatment is best for you.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE INITIAL CONSULTATION?

You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted!  After your consultation, we will schedule you to begin your treatment. Whether that appointment this is to make impressions for your Invisalign orthodontics or to place your braces, our goal is always to make you as comfortable as possible and to respect your time.

SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible.  When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

VISITING THE DENTIST DURING ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
