What To Expect At Your Free Orthodontic Consultation

orthodontics consultation

As your family’s Mukilteo and Mill Creek orthodontist, Dr. Chad Carver, DMD, understands how important it is to get to know you and your needs. That’s why he and the team offer free orthodontic consultations for first-time patients at Stellar Family Orthodontics. 

An orthodontic consultation is a time to connect with the team and learn more about the services our offices offer. These visits also provide the perfect opportunity for you to ask questions regarding your orthodontic health. 

During a free orthodontic consultation at Stellar Family Orthodontics, you can expect to:

Review dental and medical records

As your family ortho, Dr. Carver needs information regarding your dental and medical health before making any orthodontic recommendations. It’s important that the team knows of any underlying conditions or medication allergies that could potentially interfere with your treatment.

That’s why the team recommends having your dental and medical records sent to the clinic prior to your free orthodontic consultation. This ensures they have plenty of time to answer your questions and discuss treatment options, rather than spending the appointment tracking down your health history.

Take or review digital X-rays

If you have malaligned teeth and are looking for an orthodontist who provides Invisalign in Mill Creek, Dr. Carver needs to see the underlying structures of your mouth before determining if this is the right treatment for you. Digital X-rays allow the team to detect problems that may impact your treatment, such as impacted teeth or unerupted teeth.

Digital X-rays produce up to 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays. They’re also quicker and produce clearer results.

Not everybody wants to take X-rays at their orthodontic consultation. If you don’t, please have your dentist send in your latest scans, so the team at Stellar Family Orthodontics can review them at your visit.

Discuss treatment options

After reviewing your digital X-rays, as well as your dental and medical history, our team can discuss potential treatment options to improve the health and appearance of your smile. Treatments that we offer include:

Once our team understands your unique needs, they can develop an orthodontic treatment plan that works for your budget and lifestyle.

Talk about financing options

If you’re looking for an affordable orthodontist, Stellar Family Orthodontics is the right place for you and your family. Whether you want braces for the family or Invisalign clear aligners, our practice offers financing for orthodontics that can suit your budget. 

We accept nearly all forms of payment and will even match your family discount if your child has a sibling receiving more affordable orthodontic treatment elsewhere.
