Gathering the necessary information so we can create a treatment plan tailored for each patient is the first step in working with our office. You can complete the Health History and Patient Information forms on our website or we would be happy to mail them to you. If insurance is available, we can verify coverage prior to your appointment to be better prepared to answer your questions.
Once you arrive for your first visit, you will be greeted by our professional team member who will show you how to sign in at our registration computer. We would then love to provide you with a tour of our new office.
We typically take a digital panographic X-ray prior to Dr. Fogle’s comprehensive examination. This will assist in the treatment planning process and will prove useful in tracking your treatment progress. Following the completed exam, Dr. Fogle will review her findings, present available treatment options and answer your questions.
Our Treatment Coordinator will then provide you with further information on the techniques and appliances to be used, review all the necessary administrative information and present a financial plan.
If treatment is recommended to begin, we like to offer completion of the orthodontic records at that time. Those records include a digital cephalometric radiograph, digital photos of the face and teeth and models of the teeth. If it is more convenient for you, we can also start the treatment process at a subsequent visit.
