Your first visit: what to expect
When you first come to see us at Orchard Orthodontics, we’ll sit down with you to discuss what you would like to achieve from orthodontic treatment. This part of the consultation is completely free and no-obligation.
Here’s what will happen during your first appointment with us:
- You will meet one of our treatment coordinators who will chat with you to ensure they fully understand your concerns and expectations about your orthodontic treatment
- We will then undertake a comprehensive oral examination. This may include digital photo records, if required, in order for a full and thorough diagnosis to be made
- Following this, we will chat through your treatment options enabling you to make an informed decision about your treatment and answer any questions you may have
- We will talk to you about costs and finance plans which may be available to help make your treatment more affordable
A separate written orthodontic report will also be sent to your dentist/specialist and if appropriate, we will arrange for any relevant x-rays to be taken.
Clinical assessment with our specialist orthodontist
Prior to starting your treatment, you will have a full clinical assessment with our specialist orthodontist, Dr Kalim Sadiq. Once you’ve agreed to go ahead with treatment, full records of the position of your teeth are taken, including impressions and x-rays.
