First Visit


We consider your appointment in our office a valuable opportunity to meet you, for you to meet Dr. Johnston and our team, and for you to become confident in the quality of our care. At the initial appointment, we will begin by taking orthodontic records, which will include diagnostic photos and x-rays to determine the course of orthodontic treatment. We will also talk privately about our fee, your insurance and your personal payment plan. Please plan to spend one hour with us at this complimentary evaluation. Many of your questions can be answered at this appointment, and we encourage you to ask about any of your concerns.

If you choose to begin treatment that day, we will place separators or take impressions as needed for your case. After that, we will schedule your appointment to place the braces or deliver the appliance.
