First Visit


We are very excited to meet and welcome new patients to our office. We feel it is a privilege that you have selected our office to discuss orthodontic care for yourself or your family. We understand that each patient has different concerns and questions, so we have set aside a special time for you to meet with Dr. Lane. At your first visit, Dr. Lane will do a thorough examination, discuss his findings and recommendations with you, and address your concerns and questions. We will be able to talk with you about whether now is the best time to begin treatment and discuss some of the different treatment options available. We will also discuss with you some of the payment options available and how we can coordinate your payment plan with any insurance benefits you may have.

Frequently asked questions at the first visit are:

  • Is treatment needed now or should we wait until all of the permanent teeth have erupted?
  • Do any teeth need to be extracted?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will treatment cost?
  • Payment options available?
  • Will you work with my insurance plan?

While we can give you general information at this visit, definitive answers regarding your specific orthodontic care will be given at a consultation appointment after we have a chance to do a diagnostic analysis of your records. It is very important to take the time to analyze each patient’s specific needs. We will need records, which may include study models (molds made of the teeth) and a complete set of diagnostic x-rays and photographs. Once that information is gathered, Dr. Lane will do a diagnostic study and we will meet back with you for a detailed consultation.

Again, we look forward to meeting you, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to discuss your orthodontic needs.
