Your First Visit

 

Welcome to Figueroa Orthodontics.  We are excited that you are exploring our practice   Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you've always wanted and we understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision.  Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Every smile starts with an initial consultation!

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam by either Dr. Alvaro or Dr. Alex Figueroa, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation and complete the Patient Information form below if you wish to do so before your visit.

What happens after the initial consultation?

You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation if the doctors recommend treatment, we will schedule you for orthodontic records so that we can evaluate your needs and customize your treatment.  We will then schedule a case presentation at which time we will discuss your specific treatment plan, including appliances to be used, estimated time frame for treatment and financing options.

Scheduling appointments

Once you are ready to get started Dr. Alvaro or Alex Figueroa will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to answer any questions you may have and provide you with the knowledge and tools to care for your appliances and teeth throughout your treatment.

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly team will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
