Your First Visits

firstvisitWe look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.

Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. Sometimes partial records are taken at this appointment. If, after evaluating your records, Dr. Griggs believes you’re ready for treatment, you can begin active treatment as soon as possible. At your second appointment, your braces will be placed. In some cases, additional appointments may be necessary before braces are placed.

At all your visits, we encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.
