Your First Visit
What You Can Expect
First impressions are everything. At Adirondack Orthodontics, you can expect a welcoming experience starting with your complimentary consultation. You’ll be greeted with a friendly smile before we take you on a tour of our state-of-the-art office. Then, we’ll review your customized treatment plan focused on your individual needs and goals, lay out your options, and go over financials. Best of all, we will start the treatment THE SAME DAY.
Finding Out the Facts
We start by discussing your motivation for seeking treatment and the outcome you want to achieve. Then, we go over your dental history, as well as any relevant medical history. Finally, we conduct a complete dental exam, including photos and X-rays, to ensure we have everything we need to create a customized treatment plan just for you.
Laying Out Your Options
Orthodontic treatment is not a one-size-fits-all process. We’ll review all of our findings with you and discuss each option to find the one that is most appropriate for your needs. We’ll discuss your goals and the different ways to achieve them, so you can determine whether Invisalign, ceramic braces, or metal braces are right for you.
Keep in mind, there is no right or wrong answer. Two patients with similar issues can choose different treatment options and still enjoy beautiful smiles. Our orthodontists use all of their skills and expertise to develop a treatment plan that fits YOUR lifestyle.
Going Over the Financials
Many patients (and their parents/legal guardians) are concerned about the cost of orthodontic treatment. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! We start by reviewing your insurance benefits, as well as any FSA accounts you might have, to determine how much of the cost of treatment is covered. We have many financial options available and we’ll give you all the information you need to create a plan that fits your budget.
Many patients begin treatment with us on their very first visit. If you decide to proceed, we can often put on your braces or take your Invisalign scans before you leave. So, when you come for your complimentary consultation, make sure you’re ready to start your journey to the perfect smile!
