Your First Visit
We are always excited to meet new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial consultation appointment will consist of a thorough examination with Dr. Pollei and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment:
- Is there a concern that orthodontics should address?
- Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
We encourage you to ask questions as well. Occasionally there are times when additional information is warranted to allow Dr. Pollei to provide a more complete diagnosis and treatment approach. If this is the case, diagnostic records may be indicated to supplement the information gathered during the consultation visit. Our practice believes it is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs because in-depth planning leads to superior results and greater patient satisfaction. As a result, Dr. Pollei will always recommend a plan of treatment that is uniquely tailored for each patient to achieve the best possible result.
We value your time and want to see you promptly at your scheduled appointment time. To facilitate this goal we encourage you to download, print and complete the Patient Information form on our Appointments page and bring it with you to your appointment.
You may also request an appointment on our website and one of our scheduling coordinators will contact you to confirm.
