Your First Visit

What to Expect at Your Orthodontic Consultation

We know choosing an orthodontist to design your brand new smile is a big decision. That’s why we offer complimentary consultations at our Henderson orthodontic practice. We want you to have the chance to visit the office, meet the doctors, interact with our team and have your questions answered. This way you can make a confident decision about moving forward with treatment. Here’s what you can expect at this initial visit:

Step 1

Come on In

As soon as you enter our warm, welcoming practice, you’ll be greeted with a smile from Kelly at our front desk. We don’t believe in wait times but if you get here early, you can relax and unwind in our comfortable reception area, watch a movie or let the kids read a book. When it’s time to get started, Terry, our Treatment Coordinator, will greet you and take you back.

Step 2

Take Diagnostic Records

We’ll kick things off with a 3D scan using our i-CAT™ Imaging System, which gives us a three-dimensional view of your teeth and skull, unlike the 2D views most practices rely on. Terry will also snap some photos of your face, teeth and smile. When that’s complete, you’ll head back out to the reception area for a few minutes.

Step 3

Receive an Exam

Once all of your images are uploaded to the computer in our exam room, you’ll be brought back to meet with Dr. Okuda or Dr. Noorda. Parents are welcome and encouraged to join their kids in the exam room. The doctor will do a full examination and based on the exam and your diagnostic records, they’ll develop an accurate diagnosis.

Step 4

Chat With the Doctor

Your doctor will go over their findings with you and your parents (if you’re not a grown-up). They’ll present you with your treatment options, explain every step of the process and answer any questions you may have. If you do decide to proceed with treatment, we’ll also go over the logistics like the cost of treatment and insurance. By the end of your consultation, you’ll feel fully informed and excited to get started on your new smile!
