New Patients

First, let us tell you how thrilled we are for the opportunity to meet you.

When you call our office to schedule your first appointment, we send you an informational packet that includes several intake forms.  You can save time at your first appointment by filling out the paperwork ahead of time.  If you lost it, you can download it here.

When you first walk in, feel free to get a cup of coffee from our Keurig Vue Bar with cream, sugar, and flavored syrups.  Our treatment coordinator will greet you and begin the process of gathering information about why you’ve come to our office.  This is the most important part.  Everyone has different goals in mind when they come to get their teeth straightened, so we make sure that we know why you are here.

During your first visit, we will take photographs and an x-ray.  Dr. Garrett will perform a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gums, jaw bones and joints.  Once we have gathered all the necessary information, we will let you know three things:

  1. What problems we find and whether treatment is recommended at this time
  2. How long treatment is going to take
  3. What the fees will be for treatment.

You will have the opportunity to discuss any questions you have with Dr. Garrett in a private, relaxed environment.  We look forward to seeing you!
