Your first visit is about meeting your orthodontists, our support staff, touring our practice, getting all the information about the possibilities of your smile.
We book 1 hour for your first visit with us, scheduled at a time that suits you with Saturday appointments available in our Bentleigh Practice. A Welcome Pack will be mailed out to you, which includes a welcome letter, a medical history form and x-ray referral forms if required. Please complete these forms and obtain any x-rays as indicated. Friends and family are welcomed to our new patient consultations appointments.
On the day, our friendly receptionists Kelli, Maree or Tara will take your paperwork and prepare a file for you. Feel free to browse our Smile Book, showcasing some of the most common orthodontic problems and our treatment plans and results. You’ll be greeted by one of our very friendly nurses for teeth and facial photos, and a 3D scan of your teeth.
After all the information is collected, your orthodontist will discuss
• Your teeth alignment, bite relationship, and possible areas that requires correction
• Your x-ray and scan results
• One or more unique treatment plans tailored to you
• Duration of treatment and expected outcomes
• An all-inclusive fee that covers treatment, retainers and ongoing retainer checks
After all consultations, your Orthodontist will prepare a very detailed orthodontic report covering your diagnosis, treatment plan and processes moving forward. Your dentist will also receive a copy to update them on your treatment decisions.
If you wish to begin treatment with us, we can often start your treatment on the same day!
