First Visit

We are looking forward to meeting you soon! Here is what you can expect when you arrive for your first visit…

Our initial consultation is complimentary and is designed to provide you with all of the information you need. We want you to feel comfortable with our recommendation and we are here to answer your questions.

We take the time to get to know you or your child and your dental situation. Just like every person and smile is unique, every orthodontic treatment plan is unique and is custom designed by Dr. Lawrence. He carefully considers anatomy, dental and facial maturation, health and dental history, and any other contributing factors.

Your appointment time has been set aside only for you. Please arrive ten minutes before your appointment to complete any paperwork required. 

Please allow 75 minutes for this initial visit.

At your complimentary first appointment, our Treatment Coordinator will first meet with you and discuss your concerns. Then, one of our clinical staff members will take digital X-rays and photos.

We do not charge a fee for X-rays – they are a critical component of your evaluation and diagnosis. We do not want to make a recommendation, and possibly quote a fee for our services, based solely on a clinical examination that would then be ‘subject to change’ upon you agreeing to pay for X-rays. That is simply not how we do things.

Dr. Lawrence will review your photos and X-rays and complete your orthodontic examination.  Dr. Lawrence will then review all of the information with you, explain his recommendations, and answer your questions.

We recommend that if two caregivers are going to be involved in a child’s health care decisions, that both are present at the first appointment. This will ensure that Dr. Lawrence and our experienced team can answer all questions and concerns.
