What New Patients Can Expect During Their First Visit

Your first visit to an orthodontist doesn’t have to be a stressful one. At Bandeen Orthodontics, making sure you have the best patient experience possible is something that we strive for. Whether you’ve been given a referral to us from a dentist or if you’ve found us while looking for providers of orthodontic care, your first visit is important in helping us determine what orthodontic treatment best fits your needs. If you’re nervous about your first visit to Bandeen Orthodontics in Kalamazoo, here’s what to expect.

Free Initial Inspections

Your first visit will involve an initial examination of your teeth. To do so, we will take pictures of your teeth and inspect them to identify issues in alignment, position, and even potential issues that have yet to make themselves apparent. If necessary, we take complimentary x-rays that will help us accurately identify any issues that we can treat or prevent through orthodontic care. Your first visit and initial examination is free of charge at Bandeen Orthodontics, so you won’t have to worry about any fees while we determine what treatment would be right for your smile.

Meet with one of our Orthodontists

After initial inspection, you will be given time to meet with an orthodontist in a one-on-one discussion about your treatment, including options like the Damon System and Insignia Advanced Smile Design braces, as well as Invisalign. Your orthodontist will help you to review each of the treatment options, and in a final meeting with our treatment coordinator, you will be able to review your treatment options before you decide which treatment is for you. If you feel you are ready to proceed to treatment, you can start right away without having to schedule another appointment.

Can’t make it in? We Offer Virtual Consultations

If you’re in need of orthodontic care but are unable to schedule an in-person appointment, Bandeen Orthodontics also offers free virtual consultations that can help you find the treatment you need before your initial visit. Requiring just a phone, our easy online consultation only takes 4 minutes to complete.

Prioritizing the patient experience means there are no surprises when it comes to your first visit, and with an initial inspection and consultation at Bandeen Orthodontics in Kalamazoo, you can rest assured knowing exactly what to expect for your first visit.
