EVERY SMILE FOR LIFE! STARTS WITH AN INITIAL CONSULTATION!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet Dr. Petrous and our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.
During your complimentary initial consultation, we will:
Get to know you and write down your concerns
Do a thorough exam, looking in detail at your bite, your smile, and your teeth
Explain all of our findings to you in detail, and get your questions answered
Create cusomized treatment options for you (if any treatment is warranted)
Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
Our Smile For Life! team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE INITIAL CONSULTATION?
You're one step closer to achieving the Smile For Life! you've always wanted! After your consultation, if you or your child is in need of treatment, we will schedule your first appointment and get the process started. We will make sure you are fully aware of what needs to be done and how we will go about doing it.
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 scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for 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. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.
VISITING THE DENTIST DURING YOUR ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatments, 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.
