Your Patient Journey
Step 1 – The Initial Consultation
Your orthodontic treatment journey will begin with a consultation with one of our specialist orthodontists. You don’t need a referral from your general dentist to have this consultation. You can call us and book an appointment time that suits you.
Step 2 – Orthodontic Assessment
There are two key objectives to your initial consultation:
The first is to allow you to ask whatever questions you may have about orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist and treatment co-ordinator will aim to answer all of these.
The second objective is to undergo an orthodontic assessment. This is when your orthodontist will examine your teeth and mouth, take clinical photos and any x-rays if needed. This information helps us to plan your orthodontic treatment.
Step 3 – Making the Decision
Once the orthodontist has completed an initial assessment, all the information will be presented to you in your treatment plan. This will outline the type of treatments you will most benefit from and the estimated length of time treatment will take. Your treatment co-ordinator will give you a quote detailing the cost of your treatment, provide information on payment plans and be there to help you with any queries or concerns you may have.
