Your First Visit

What You Can Expect


First impressions are everything – so when you come to Adirondack Orthodontics for your complimentary consultation, expect a welcoming experience from the very start, with all treatment focused on YOUR needs and goals.

We’ll start things off with an office tour, then we’ll find out the facts, lay out your options, go over financials, and finally, if you’re willing, start treatment.


Finding Out the Facts

We start things off by talking about your motivation for seeking treatment and what you want to get out of it. Then, we’ll go over your dental history as well as any relevant medical history. We conduct a complete dental exam, including photos and X-rays.

Once we have all of that information, we’ll thoroughly review it to create a customized treatment plan just for you.


Laying Out Your Options

There are many roads that will lead to a beautiful smile. We’ll review all of our findings with you and discuss the treatment options that are indicated for your situation. We’ll have another discussion about your goals and give you all the facts about your options, so you can determine whether Invisalign, ceramic braces, or metal braces are right for you.

Remember that there is no one-size-fits-all, right-or-wrong answer here. Two patients with similar issues can choose different treatment options and still enjoy beautiful smiles. Our orthodontists use their skills to develop a treatment that fits your lifestyle.


Going Over the Financials

Many patients (and their parents/legal guardians) worry about the cost of treatment. That’s why we’ll talk about the cost. We start by reviewing your insurance benefits as well as any FSA accounts you might have. We have many financial options available, so we’ll go over all of them to help you make the best decision for your budget.


Starting Treatment

Many times, we can start your treatment on your first visit! We can put on your braces or take your Invisalign scans before you leave. So when you come, make sure you’re ready to start your journey to the perfect smile!
