Why are we different?

INITIAL VISIT
Our objective is to make sure each of your visits is pleasant and informative. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough orthodontic clinical examination.  If appropriate, Dr. Guess will recommend special x-rays, photographs and study casts.  This will allow him to develop a customized treatment plan.  At the initial appointment, each of us will do our very best to make sure you are seen on time, answer all of your questions and concerns,  present treatment that we would recommend to our own families, and be flexible in our financial arrangements.

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

  • Any recent panoramic x-ray(s).
  • Any information or x-rays your dentist may have given you
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms and/or your insurance card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
  • Completed online or printed patient registration forms

Your initial appointment will consist of an examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address the orthodontic needs of you or your child.
Please alert the office if you have any medical condition such as:

Diabetes                                   Artificial heart valves and joints   
High blood pressure              Rheumatic fever    Medications

If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms or card to the appointment. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
