Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
During your initial consultation you will meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a thorough orthodontic exam with Dr. Hannapel and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete dental exam, with digital photographs and x-rays, to determine what care is needed
- Discuss which options are best for you and help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss insurance and financial options
Our team is here to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need so that you feel comfortable with your orthodontic choice. If you are in need of a consultation, please contact us today to schedule your initial visit.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your appointment with Dr. Hannapel to have your orthodontic appliances placed. This visit is very comfortable and you can plan about 60-90 minutes for this appointment.
Visiting the orthodontist about every six to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic progress. Our team will work with you to schedule appointments that are as convenient as possible with your schedule and still allow us to provide you the best care. We understand that your time is valuable and we will do as much as possible at each visit to eliminate unnecessary appointments. We maintain a calendar of all area school schedules. This will help you to schedule your care with as little interuption to your lives as possible.
We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything possible to accommodate you.
We are excited to meet you. Please contact us now so that we can help schedule your first visit.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months during your orthodontic treatment. Routine dental checkups and hygiene (cleaning) appointments with your dentist are an important part in keeping your smile healthy. If additional dental care is needed, we work closely with your family dentist to coordinate appointments so that you are receiving the best care possible.
