What Happens at Your First Orthodontist Appointment?

Dhingra Orthodontics is focused on providing world-class orthodontic care to all our patients. It all begins with your complimentary consultation, which is an opportunity for you to meet our team, scope out our office, and discuss your treatment and financial options.

Paperwork & Dental History

Before getting started with your first appointment, we’ll ask you to fill out the paperwork with information about your dental and general health history. This will help us understand your needs ahead of your first exam.

Meet the Staff & Tour the Office

After completing all paperwork, we will introduce you to our amazing orthodontists, Dr. Seema Dhingra and her son, Dr. Azie Dhingra. We will also introduce you to our incredible orthodontic care team and show you around the office!

Oral Exam, Scans, & X-rays

After getting a lay of the land, we will do a physical exam to check the alignment of your teeth. Then, using state-of-the-art technology, we will take digital scans and X-rays to diagnose your condition and understand your orthodontic needs.

Treatment Plan & Questions

After reviewing your scans and x-rays, we will then talk with you about your options for orthodontic treatment. We have many types of orthodontic treatment including braces, Invisalign, and more. We will discuss your needs and find an option that works for your lifestyle and budget. 

This is a great time to ask lots of questions about orthodontic treatment! We want all of our patients to feel fully educated about their treatment, and to feel ready to take steps to improve their smiles.

Insurance and Payment Plan

Once you have discussed your treatment plan with us, our excellent office team will review your insurance and discuss your payment options. 

We believe everyone deserves the benefits of a healthy smile, which is why we aim to make orthodontics as affordable as possible. We offer many flexible in-house financing options, so you can get the smile of your dreams without breaking the bank.
