First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients and are committed to making your first appointment a positive and productive experience.

When you arrive, you will be greeted by our front desk personnel. They’ll help you with any necessary paperwork and facilitate your visit.

​Your appointment will begin with a thorough examination that includes pictures and radiographs of your teeth and smile.  Soon after, you will have a complimentary consultation with Dr. Martinez where you’ll discuss:

  • Concerns about your smile
  • Diagnosis and orthodontic treatment options
  • Appropriate timing for orthodontic treatment
  • Types of braces, whether metal brackets, clear brackets, or Invisalign is right for you

Once Dr. Martinez and you agree on the best plan, our treatment coordinator will help with the remainder of your appointment.

Often times, it is best to wait before starting braces. These scenarios usually arise when a young patient needs to lose baby teeth or if a patient needs dental treatment prior to orthodontic treatment.  If Dr. Martinez thinks you are ready to start braces, our treatment coordinator will help with any financial and insurance questions.

We provide multiple payment options and are confident we’ll find a financial arrangement that works for you.
