In customer satisfaction surveys, Dr. Yamada and her associates have received superior ratings from patients who have come in for an initial orthodontic consultation, getting 98% top survey marks for all aspects of the exam.  
We are looking forward to seeing you at your initial appointment! At this important appointment, we will listen to your orthodontic concerns, take an x-ray and dental photographs and do a comprehensive examination to discuss your orthodontic needs. If treatment is recommended, we will talk about your options and show you on models our different braces, retainers and Invisalign aligners. We will then take impressions to create a model of your teeth. This important visit will give us insight into your specific orthodontic needs and help us develop a custom treatment plan. We know your time is valuable, and therefore we do everything you need to get started at your first visit. The exam is complimentary and there is no charge to you for your first visit, however, we will bill your insurance if you have coverage for the exam and diagnostic records.

During the first visit, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?
  • How soon can I begin?
