Office Visits

Complimentary Consultation

At your first visit, Dr. Larson will perform a thorough clinical examination to evaluate your personal orthodontic need. This appointment usually requires about 20-30 minutes of your time. For most of the patients, after the examination, Dr. Larson will be able to provide you with a proposed treatment plan, which includes an estimated treatment length and approximate cost. If the patient is ready to start treatment, a follow-up records appointment is made. At the records appointment, X-rays, photos, and impressions will be taken so Dr. Larson can analyze them in order to develop a specific customized treatment plan. On some occasions, the patient is not ready to start orthodontic treatment and will be placed on a growth and development recall system to be re-evaluated in the future.

Regular Appointments

After the records have been taken, consecutive appointments spaced about one week apart are scheduled. At the first appointment, which lasts about 10 minutes, Dr. Larson will take a set of working impressions and will discuss your final treatment plan with you. The second appointment is when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.), which usually takes about one hour.

After your braces are placed, you will be seen at regular intervals of about 5 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes about 10 to 20 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We try to make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
