first visit

Wondering what to expect at your first visit with Skelton Orthodontics?

Your first visit begins with a welcome from our Treatment Coordinator, who will review your personal information and health history, and then Dr. Skelton will perform a thorough examination to assess your smile’s situation and determine your course of treatment. What is your condition, and do you need to begin treatment immediately? Will you need any permanent teeth removed? Are you going to have to wear a headgear?

During this initial appointment, Dr. Skelton will recommend the best method to fix your smile, as well as the expected duration of your treatment. We’ll also discuss the cost of treatment and your payment options, and set up the appropriate appointments for models, braces, and a follow-up appointment.

At the time of your introductory visit, you can help us out by providing any panoramic x-ray taken during the preceding six months. Be sure to bring your insurance card, if you have one—we’ll be able to give you a better cost estimate.

Please print and fill out your new patient form before your first appointment.
