My First Visit

We look forward to meeting you at your first visit to our office.

For new patients the first visit is complimentary.  During this visit we will help you get acquainted with our office, explain your orthodontic treatment possibilities, discuss treatment costs, any insurance coverage, and give you written information about our various payment plans and options.  We understand that each patient's orthodontic situation is unique, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.  This important visit also allows Dr. Wood to discuss the following questions:

  • ~ Is this a condition/concern that orthodontics can improve?
  • ~ Is treatment needed now or can it be delayed until more growth and tooth eruption has occurred?
  • ~ What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • ~ Do any baby or permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • ~ How long will treatment take?

If the timing is right for treatment then the next step is to collect diagnostic records.  The diagnostic records are complimentary and consist of a 3-D x-ray scan, photographs of the face and teeth, and sometimes molds of your teeth.  This information is used by Dr. Wood to further explain your diagnosis, possible treatment options, and help create your individual treatment plan from start to finish. 

If you think of any questions after your visit please feel free to contact us either directly by phone (817.599.5084) or by e-mail at ( [email protected] )

Open Communication

We believe that good orthodontic care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile!
