We always get very excited about meeting new patients. Please drive right to the front door and look for your own special parking space, labeled with your name. Our Treatment Coordinator will greet you as you arrive, and give you a quick tour of our office, so you know all the amenities available.
We will take a set of FREE digital photos of your teeth, and a FREE digital panoramic x-ray. Then, Dr. Woolaver will perform a FREE clinical exam and consultation. The doctor uses the photos to help you understand what he sees, and the x-ray is helpful for the doctor to provide a thorough exam, check for pathology, evaluate growing teeth, etc.
Dr. Woolaver will discuss any problems, consequences, and solutions in regards to your orthodontic needs. If you are ready for treatment, he will detail your individual treatment plan.
In some younger patients, Dr. Woolaver may recommend monitoring jaw growth and tooth eruption for a while. We do not want to start treatment until your teeth are ready… that would only extend your time in treatment, not help you finish any quicker. If there are any siblings, let us know, and we can easily do a quick check on them too. We’ll make sure there’s nothing to worry about while their teeth are developing, and let you know what you can expect in the future.
Please fill out our new patient forms online. It will save you time in our office.
Feel free to bring a copy of any panoramic x-rays taken within the past 12 months.
If you have orthodontic insurance, let us know the details when you schedule your consultation… That way we will already have your benefit verified before you arrive.
We can’t wait to meet you!
