At your first visit to our office, Drs. Clark and Dr. Barnabei offer a "no charge" consultation to determine if orthodontic treatment is indicated. If so, a follow up appointment is scheduled for complete diagnostic records which typically include a clinical examination, plaster study models of the teeth, photos of the the patient's face and teeth, and X-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
After the doctors have evaluated your records, we discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes less than one hour. You'll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 15 to 30 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
