First Visit


Our goal from your very first visit is to give you the healthy, 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 how 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 will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. Orthodontic records are necessary to determine the type of appliances to be used, the duration of treatment time, and the frequency of visits. Records consist of models of the teeth, Cephalometric and Panoramic X-rays, and photographs. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with Panoramic X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our 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 first consultation.

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 your first appointment and Dr. Azar will place your appliances. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
