Your first visit

At Waldman Orthodontics, every smile starts with a consultation.

Your first visit

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. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with digital x-rays (when needed) and clinical photographs, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Patients who are interested in Invisalign will have the opportunity to receive an Invisalign simulation of their treatment results
  • Create a customized treatment plan for you
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

We want to respect your busy schedule, so in most cases we can offer the opportunity to begin your treatment the same day as your 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. Waldman will put your new orthodontic appliance in place. This appointment generally takes about an hour. During this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling appointments

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. We will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which 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 orthodontic treatment

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