Welcome to the Orthodontic Practice of Dr. Michele Shems
Your first visit will consist of a consultation to discuss your goals and reasons for seeking orthodontic treatment. We will review any x-rays and notes from your dentist, and create images of teeth and the surrounding area using cameras and x-rays to help us determine if orthodontic treatment is indicated. Our team will present your diagnosis and recommend treatment options, and develop a plan that best fits your individual needs. We will discuss treatment options and timelines, as well as costs and payment options for any proposed treatments.
Once your treatment plan and financial arrangements have been determined, we will schedule the first series of appointments to place your braces or appliance, and provide you with an estimated timeline for future visits.
When you come in for your initial visit please be sure to bring your insurance card (if applicable) and arrive early to fill out our initial paperwork if you have not already done so.
We look forward to seeing you in the office and showing you how orthodontic care can enhance your dental health and overall wellness. We want you to have the confidence to share your smile with the world!
