First Visit

At your first visit to our office, you will get acquainted with our facility and staff.

Our treatment coordinator will give you a tour of our office and guide you through your orthodontic examination.

We will take two orthodontic X-rays of the teeth and jaws:

  • The first X-ray is a Panorex which shows us root length, root angulations, and third molar positions.
  • The second X-ray is a Cephalometric Lateral Head, which shows us the inclination of the teeth, the bone surrounding the teeth, and relative jaw positions.

We also take digital photographs of the teeth and bite to visualize and document the initial position of the teeth.

Dr. Burstein will then perform an examination of the teeth, bite and jaws to determine what the orthodontic needs are. Dr. Burstein will explain what the problems are and how best to solve them. We will send a written summary of our findings and recommendations along with photos to you and your dentist. Your dentist will also receive the Panorex X-ray for their files.

Our treatment coordinator will also give you all the financial and insurance information you will need. We have flexible monthly payment plans including a no-money-down option for qualified patients.

"There is no reason why anyone that truly wants to get treatment at our office cannot afford to do so." - Dr. Burstein
