We look forward to meeting you at your first visit to our office! During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn more about orthodontic treatment. Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you have always wanted. We offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to provide you with customized and individual care. We will work with you so that your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient, and rewarding as possible.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Bocage and our team will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial options, insurance information, and payment plans
Dr. Bocage and our team will also be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions. We feel that the better educated and informed you are about orthodontics, the better your treatment will progress.
Please contact our practice at (786) 598-0297 to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and your doctor will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice at (786) 598-0297 and our friendly scheduling coordinator, Daniela, will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
