First Visit

Girl with bracesDr. Tammy Meister, Your Local St. Paul Orthodontist

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. We set aside 60 minutes for this visit as it will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we will address the following that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now, or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

It is important that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. Also, we will answer any additional questions.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.
  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card. By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs.
  • We will send all necessary paperwork to you in advance. Please complete these fully and return them at your appointment. Doing so will ensure that all of your questions can be fully addressed.
