Your first appointment:

This is where you will meet the team and get acquainted with our office. The doctors will provide a thorough initial exam to assess any orthodontic needs and concerns.   During your initial consultation, Dr. Ziuchkovski will be happy to address any specific concerns or questions you may have. If the doctor and patient decide to begin orthodontic treatment, an initial treatment plan will be presented and financial arrangements discussed.

The records appointment:

This appointment usually takes about 1 hour. This is where the doctors gather all the vital information necessary to begin treatment. The records usually include impressions of the teeth, x-rays, and digital imaging of the facial and oral structures.  The doctors will carefully review these records and derive a comprehensive treatment plan that provides the patient with the most optimal orthodontic and esthetic results.

Treatment Appointments:

The initial placement of orthodontic appliances (braces) takes about 1-2 hours of time. Depending on the specific needs of each patient, a second appointment may be necessary. Once the braces are placed, regular appointments range from 3 to 10 weeks and normally take 10 to 30 minutes.

We welcome any questions that arise during treatment from our patients or parents.  We also encourage family members to accompany the patient in the treatment area at anytime.
