Orthodontic services are necessary to ensure your teeth are correctly aligned and promote a healthy smile. Our premier orthodontists use top-of-the-line equipment to carry out customized treatment plans designed to meet the needs of each patient. Our team at Henderson Orthodontics is here to provide you with the highest quality care and attention possible, giving you the treatment you need to be confident in your smile.
What happens at your first appointment?
As a prospective patient of Henderson Orthodontics, you may have questions about what happens at your first orthodontist appointment. We’ll ask you to fill out all the paperwork before your initial visit to reduce your wait time. Once you arrive for your first appointment, you’ll get to meet our team, learn more about what we do and receive a thorough examination. During the exam, we’ll go over your medical and dental records and discuss any current problems. We do a full workup and take X-rays of your teeth, mouth or jaw to make a diagnosis. Following the diagnosis, we’ll begin discussions regarding your options and whether or not treatment is necessary. You can always ask questions about cost, payment options, length of treatment and anything else you have on your mind. The goal of your first appointment is to make sure you have all the information you need to decide on the right orthodontist treatment.
What happens next?
After your initial consultation, you’re much closer to having the smile you’ve always wanted! Depending on what our team learned during your first appointment, we can schedule your next appointment to begin treatment. Each patient is in a unique situation with different needs, so when and how often you’ll need to come in varies. We typically like to see patients every five to ten weeks, though that timeline could differ depending on your treatment plan. Whatever treatment you choose, it’s essential you visit us regularly so our team can check in and monitor your progress.

Our staff works hard to ensure that our scheduling process is as easy and convenient as possible.
