Your First Appointment In Amherst and Bedford, NH

Thank you for choosing my office! I'm looking forward to meeting you and your family.  It is my mission to provide you with the highest quality of orthodontic care in a considerate, personable, and comfortable atmosphere.

During your first visit, complimentary digital images and a digital panoramic X-ray will be taken to offer the most comprehensive opinion. Your teeth, jaw structure, and facial esthetics are all carefully considered when developing your treatment options. To help remember our discussion, you and your dentist will receive a comprehensive report of my findings and recommendations.

I want my patients to leave with clear expectations, and to understand the following:

  • Is orthodontic treatment indicated?
  • Orthodontic treatment options
  • Estimated length of treatment
  • The best time to begin treatment
  • Treatment costs & financing options

If treatment is indicated, I will recommend completing diagnostic records, which would include models of the teeth, and additional x-rays. Because your time is valuable, time is set aside to obtain these records, and in many cases, you can even get started with your treatment the same day.

A referral from your dentist is not necessary to schedule an exam, so please contact us if you would like to schedule an evaluation.
