Get Started


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. This important 60-minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records. The records include X-rays, photos and impressions for study models and are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan.

During your first visit, you can expect:

A thorough examination by Dr. Kim to determine:

  • If orthodontic treatment is indicated

  • What treatment options are available

  • How much treatment will cost
  • The correct time to begin treatment

  • How long treatment will be
To be presented with a detailed explanation of Dr. Kim’s recommendations.
Our treatment coordinators will discuss your insurance benefits as well as establish an individualized payment plan.
If time permits, digital photographs and orthodontic records in preparation for treatment.
