Take the First Step to Your New Smile
At Suwanee Orthodontics, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is the most important one!
We look forward to meeting you during your first visit to our Suwanee office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn all about your orthodontic treatment.
Easy and Painless
From the second you call our office through your final retainer program, at Suwanee Orthodontics we value your experience above all.
The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Suwanee Orthodontics will be completely pain-free.
We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.
Your first visit will consist of an initial examination and a discussion of your potential treatment options. This important visit will allow Dr. Kim to determine the right time to begin treatment.
Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.
Ask Us Questions
During your first visit, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well!
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
Creating Your Individualized Treatment Plan
After reviewing your records, Dr. Kim will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan. Dr. Kim will look at your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your unique orthodontic case.
We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and parents and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.
Then it’s time for you to choose your braces—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or clear aligners. You may wonder which choice is right for you—traditional braces or clear aligners? You can experience treatments with both braces and clear aligners if you desire.
For example, you can start with traditional metal braces and finish with clear aligners (and vice-versa).
Dr. Kim will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. We will then walk you through the process, explaining everything from scheduling and expected discomfort levels to finances and payment options.
Start Your Treatment the Same Day
Don’t wait an extra month—start your braces or clear aligners at your free consultation exam! You might have to wait for a second visit at another office to start your treatment.
But, you can leave your free consultation appointment at Suwanee Orthodontics wearing your new braces.
