Your First Visit

Dr. Appel and his staff look forward to meeting you and appreciate the opportunity to discuss your or your family’s orthodontic needs. During this complimentary visit, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.

Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. Our doctor will discuss if any treatment is needed, what type of treatment is available, when your treatment would start, and an estimated treatment time. During your exam, feel free to communicate any questions or concerns you may have regarding your orthodontic treatment. After your exam, you will meet with our treatment coordinator regarding your treatment options and fees. It is important to us that you leave the office with a clear understanding of what orthodontic treatment can do for you, how much it will cost, and how long it will take.
