What to Expect at Your Initial Consultation
Every new smile starts with a consultation with our Raleigh, Durham and Cary orthodontist. We know just how important choosing the right orthodontist is, which is why this first visit is complimentary. The appointment takes about one hour. We want you to have all of the information you need to feel confident about kicking off your orthodontic treatment at VanderWall Orthodontics. Here’s what you can expect at your first visit with our orthodontist:
Schedule a Consultation
After you book a consultation (you can do that here!), you’ll come to our Cary, Raleigh or Durham orthodontics office. You’ll be greeted by our friendly, welcoming team. We know family schedules continue to get busier and we respect your time, which is why we keep wait times to a minimum. After you check-in, a team member will show you around the practice and then take complimentary digital x-rays.
Meet With Dr. VanderWall
Dr. VanderWall will perform a thorough examination. He’ll use these findings along with the x-rays to develop a diagnosis and personalized treatment recommendations. He’ll sit down with you to go over his findings and explain the ins and outs of your different orthodontic treatment options, as well as answer any questions you may have.
Determine the Best Treatment Option
After filling you in on your treatment options, Dr. VanderWall will help you choose the treatment that will bring out the best in your unique smile in a way that suits your lifestyle and goals. Then, our Treatment Coordinator will review treatment fees, your insurance coverage and payment options. Dr. VanderWall and our team are committed to making orthodontic treatment affordable, which is why we offer no down payment for traditional braces and low monthly payment options. We also accept most insurance plans and even offer family discounts if two or more members of the same family are in treatment together.
Diagnostic records have to be done before braces are placed or your aligners are designed. If you decide you’re ready to start treatment, we can complete these diagnostic records right after your consultation to save you from having to make an extra trip to our office.
We look forward to helping you achieve your smile goals!
