Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that
 you have always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic
 care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve 
the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the 
way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient,
 and rewarding as possible. We’ll use the latest technology, offering a
variety of safe and gentle treatment options, giving you the customized,
 individual care that you deserve.

Every smile starts with a complimentary consultation!

Your complimentary consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our 
team, as well as, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial 
exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During
 your complimentary consultation, Dr. Azar will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms.
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment
is necessary.
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan.
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment 

During your complimentary consultation, we will explain everything that you
will need to know about your orthodontic treatment, so that you can choose 
what’s best for you – no strings attached. If you’d like to schedule a
complimentary consultation with Dr. Azar, feel free to call us.
 What happens after the initial consultation?

If you do choose to receive orthodontic treatment, you will need to schedule
 your first appointment. Your first appointment is when Dr. Azar
 will place your new orthodontic appliance. Typically, this appointment is no
longer than one hour, and then you’re on your way toward your new smile!

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting the orthodontist every 4-8 weeks is an important part of your 
orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 20-40 minutes. Our
 practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are
 scheduled around your busy schedule; so that you will spend less time in the
 dental chair, and more time enjoying the things you love to do.

We understand that “life happens,” so if you’re running late or need to 
reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to 
accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, call
 our practice. We’re looking forward to working with you.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once 
every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth 
cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we
 will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you 
are receiving the best care possible.
