What to Expect at Your First Visit
We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. During the initial visit, you will meet Dr. Emily Yu, and get acquainted with our office staff. We ask that you assist us by downloading our Patient Forms, complete it and bring the form with you to your first visit. Your first orthodontic visit consists of an examination by Dr. Yu and the discussion of potential treatment options. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different and we will give you the personal attention your smile deserves.
Please allow 45 minutes to 1 hour for this initial visit so that we can address all of your questions and concerns. We know your time is valuable, so we will plan to take your diagnostic records: Digital X-rays (Panoramic and Cephalometric Radiographs), Diagnostic Casts, and Photographs at your New Patient Exam. You will then have a treatment conference with Dr. Yu where she will review your records, present the diagnostic information, and discuss the treatment plans and options. Specific questions will be answered such as: What appliances will be used? How long will treatment take? How do I clean and take care of the orthodontic appliance? What kind of foods should be avoided? How much will it cost? What are my payment options? We offer flexible payment options with no interest to meet our patients' needs. What are the risks and benefits of the treatment? And any other questions you may have. Services we offer include: Metal and Ceramic (Clear) Braces, Invisalign ® and Orthopedic Appliances.
