Braces can be an intimidating process for both the patient and parent. We are here to help you through the experience.

Evaluation Appointment

This is your first appointment at our office. You will meet Dr. Kaufman and he will perform a comprehensive orthodontic exam to determine if more diagnostic information is needed.

Records Appointment

At this appointment the patient will have a Cephalometric and a Panoramic x-ray taken. Upper and lower impressions will be taken. Digital intra and extra-oral photographs will be recorded and printed.

Consultation Appointment

At this appointment a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan will be presented to you. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions about the treatment outline and general orthodontic requirements. Our Treatment Coordinator will discuss any financial obligations and assist you in obtaining your insurance benefits.

We strive to make the orthodontic process an enjoyable experience for both the patient and parents. If at any time you have any questions regarding treatment or financial contracts please feel free to ask.
