First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment can occur in our Pikeville or Paintsville office will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options with one of our board-certified orthodontists. This important 30-minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records. The records include X-rays, photos, and a digital scan of the teeth and are necessary to help us develop a personalized treatment plan for you. This additional appointment will last approximately another 30 minutes.

During this appointment we will also address many common questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment and potential treatment options such as braces and Invisalign. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.
  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card. By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs.
