Patients interested in treatment can schedule an initial exam at one of two convenient locations. As a courtesy, all routine initial orthodontic exams for new patients are free (exams for patients with jaw-joint pain are not considered to be routine and require a special appointment and modest charge). At the initial exam, Dr. Kolodziej will assess your orthodontic needs and discuss appropriate treatment options. A fee quote for any proposed treatments will be provided. The appointment time for an initial exam is approximately 20-30 minutes and there is no obligation to pursue treatment. It is strongly suggested that you complete all necessary paperwork prior to arrival. All forms for the initial exam can be found here.
After a patient has completed the initial exam, a diagnostic records appointment can be scheduled. Production of diagnostic records are the next step in the treatment process and usually consist of radiographs (x-rays), photographs and molds of the teeth from which models of the patient’s teeth are made. Diagnostic records are necessary to construct a detailed treatment plan for each individual. After the diagnostic records are reviewed, orthodontic treatment can begin.
IMPORTANT: All individuals under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or adult at the first visit.
