EVERY SMILE STARTS WITH AN INITIAL CONSULTATION :)

 

Initial Visit

All initial visits at Van Gemert orthodontics are 100% complementary! Your first visit to our office will give you the opportunity to meet our team and to learn what orthodontics is all about. While you're here, Dr. Van Gemert will do an exam and we will take some diagnostic records, including pictures of your face and teeth and x-rays. This will allow Dr. Van Gemert to determine your specific orthodontic needs, as well as create a customized treatment plan for you. In addition, a member of our team will review financial information, insurance options and payment plans with you before you leave. Our office understands that choosing to have orthodontic treatment is a big decision and want to make sure that you have all the information you need to determine what treatment is best for you. 

When you're ready, please contact our office to schedule your complementary initial exam. We can't wait to meet you and hope to hear from you soon!

What happens after the initial visit?

After your initial consultation, we will schedule you an appointment with Dr. Van Gemert to have your orthodontic appliances placed. This appointment normally takes about an hour. We know that this is a long time to be in the dental chair so our team will do our best to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible. Before you leave, we will make sure to answer all the questions you have as well as give you instructions on properly clean and care for your new appliances. 

Regular Appointments

Once your appliances have been placed, you will have regularly scheduled visits with us approximately every 6 to 10 weeks for adjustments. These appointments usually take approximately 20-30 minutes. Our goal is to make your regular orthodontic appointments are as convenient for you as possible so please let us know what days and times work best for you when it comes time to schedule.

Our office understands that there may come a time when you're running late or need to reschedule. If you're running late, please call us immediately and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you need to reschedule, we ask that you please be courteous to us and your fellow patients by cancelling appointments no later than 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time.
