Your First Visit
Your complimentary initial consultation will begin with a tour of our office. You will have the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete orthodontic exam with Dr. Walker, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.
If you are good candidate for orthodontic treatment, we will recommend an information gathering process called orthodontic records which include photographs, xrays and models of your teeth and jaws. Orthodontic records information will be used by Dr. Walker to do an in depth diagnosis of your jaws, teeth and face. This level of diagnosis is what allows Dr. Walker to give you a truly customized treatment plan and results in timely treatment with predictable results.
We believe that great healthcare begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments and answer all your questions. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with one common goal- helping you achieve a healthy bite and a beautiful, confident smile.
