Office Visits

Welcome to our Office

We are pleased to have you as a new patient! We have prepared this page to familiarize you with our office appointments and to establish a better understanding of how orthodontic treatment begins. Also below you will find a link to our new patient information forms. Please complete these forms and bring them with you upon your first visit to our office.

Examination

Your initial appointment in our office is for a preliminary clinical examination. At this appointment, you will get to meet Dr. Housley and/or Dr. Dobson. One of the doctors will determine the need for orthodontic treatment, advise you of the problems they see, and explain the procedure for records. We will talk about options of braces vs. Invisalign (or Invisalign Teen). There is NO FEE for the exam.

Records

If treatment is indicated, diagnostic records are needed so that Dr. Housley and/or Dr. Dobson may study your case and determine the best treatment plan for correction. Records include state of the art digital scanning of the upper and lower teeth for study models, a 3D Cone Beam Xray, and digital photos. The $325 Records Fee is due at this appointment. If you’re sure you want to begin treatment as soon as possible, please advise us at least 2 weeks before your exam appointment and we will allow time to take the records.

Conference

After the records are taken and diagnosed, Dr. Housley and/or Dr. Dobson will meet with you to discuss specific treatment plans and options. We will advise you of the fee and the anticipated length of your treatment, and the importance of patient cooperation to ensure the best results. There is no charge for the conference; the interpretation of your orthodontic records is included in the records fee.

Thank you for choosing our office! We look forward to meeting you. Please ask questions – we are interested in your concerns.
