At your first appointment, a complete examination will be performed by our Doctor, digital x-rays may be taken if indicated, and an overview of any necessary treatment will be given. A complete diagnosis and treatment plan will be provided once diagnostic records have been taken. The appointment may take up to one hour in length. The cost of treatment and financial arrangements will be presented at the first appointment.
Subsequent appointments vary in length depending upon the treatment procedures being provided for the patient. For example, a banding appointment might require two hours but a minor adjustment may take 10 to 15 minutes. Since bandings are time-intensive they are scheduled in the morning or early afternoon, while adjustments are normally scheduled in the mid and late afternoon.
