First Visit


charleyWe are pleased to welcome you to our practice. We 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 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.

Our objective is to make your visit with us pleasant and informative.

Your initial appointment is complimentary and will consist of:

  • A thorough clinical exam by Dr. Misuraca
  • Digital X-rays to help Dr. Misuraca evaluate growth and development of the teeth
  • Facial photos to help both you and Dr. Misuraca visually discuss your features and any concerns you may have
  • Dr. Misuraca’s recommendations for your treatment
  • Answers to any of your questions
  • Cost of treatment, if indicated, and what financial arrangements can be made, including how your insurance benefits will be handled

This important visit will address the orthodontic needs of you or your child to determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment.

If treatment is indicated, treatment can begin that day if you desire, or we will be happy to schedule an appointment when it is convenient for you.

If a child is not ready for treatment, they will be scheduled to return as needed (usually every six months) to monitor growth and development and tooth eruption until Dr. Misuraca feels it is a good time developmentally to start treatment.
