Office Visits

Our mission is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. 

Our practice seeks out the latest technology, high-quality staff, and best orthodontic materials, to offer you the best treatment. We believe you deserve customized and conservative care, so that is exactly what we will continue to provide.

Every smile begins with an initial consultation!

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet one on one with Dr. Zach to answer all your questions. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a thorough exam to determine if treatment is needed 
  • Create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss financial information, including insurance and payment options

What happens after the initial consultation?

If you are ready for treatment, the next step is to get treatment started! We will inform you of all the necessary appointments to start your care.

If Dr. Zach decides you are not ready at this time, he will provide you with a timeline of your future orthodontic needs and discuss the importance of growth checks during a monitoring phase.

Scheduling appointments

Visiting our office every 4 to 12 weeks is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. We pride ourselves on the fact that most of our patients are able to finish on time or before their treatment time estimates!

Appointment times will vary, depending on the goals for the appointment. Some require more time (putting braces on, expanders, removing braces), while most appointments will be quicker, routine checks. We offer convenient appointment times, reserving after school and Saturdays for our quicker checks to be flexible with your schedule.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. Please continue to make these appointments throughout your care.
