Every smile starts with a complimentary consultation by Dr. David Wilkinson.
Hello, my name is Tara. I am the Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Wilkinson. I look forward to meeting you at your first appointment.
This appointment is complimentary and takes about an hour. Dr. Wilkinson will provide a thorough evaluation of your smile and bite. He will talk with you about your concerns and explain your orthodontic needs in detail. Digital photographs and digital x-rays are taken to aid Dr. Wilkinson in the diagnostic process. He will let you know if treatment is recommended, and discuss all available options with you. Dr. Wilkinson wants you to make an educated decision about starting orthodontic treatment.
I will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact us to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile and or bite you've always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and then Dr. Wilkinson will place your new orthodontic appliances. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting Dr. Wilkinson about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.
We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every three to six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
