If your child has their first orthodontic appointment coming up, then our orthodontist, Dr. Bertha Dieguez, would like to help you and your child prepare for it. The more you both know about the appointment, the less nervous and more comfortable you might feel at our office. So, when you and your child visit us, you can expect the following things to occur:

-Our team will introduce ourselves and give you a tour of the office. This can help you feel more comfortable and welcomed during the appointment.

-We will guide you and your child to a comfortable examination chair.

-Our orthodontist will closely examine your child’s teeth and jaw by taking X-rays and visually inspecting the mouth.

-Our orthodontist will determine the need for treatment. If treatment is needed, she will provide an accurate diagnosis and explain the problem.

-Our orthodontist will then explain the treatment options that can help your child. You and your child will choose the treatment you desire.

-After a treatment is chosen and your insurance information has been given to our office staff, our orthodontist will create a customized treatment plan for your child.

-Finally, you will schedule your child’s next appointment that will involve the first steps of treatment.
