First Visit


At the first visit to the orthodontist the patient will be seen by the treatment coordinator for an initial exam and review of your medical and dental history. Dr. Toombs will then examine the patient and discuss preliminary treatment plans. If treatment is recommended at the time of the initial consultation and you choose to proceed, we will take diagnostic records. These records include facial and oral photos, a digital scan of the teeth and X-rays for developing a personalized treatment plan.

Initial Banding/Bonding Appointment

Depending on the treatment type, the initial banding or bonding appointment may last from 30 to 60 minutes. Initial appointments are scheduled to allow enough time to discuss proper care of appliances as well as allow time for patients/parents to ask questions concerning braces care.
