What to Expect on Your First Visit

The office of Dr. Brian A. Rinehart is always excited about meeting new patients. During your first appointment, we will provide a thorough examination and discuss your potential treatment options. This important, 30-minute visit gives Dr. Rinehart and his staff an insight into your specific orthodontic or periodontal needs. To expedite treatment and make the best use of your time, we may also schedule X-rays, photos and impressions for study models following your initial exam. These models are necessary in developing your custom treatment plan. You can expect this additional appointment to take about one hour.

During your initial exam, Dr. Rinehart will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic or periodontal treatment. We encourage you to ask your own questions as well.

  • Is this a condition that will benefit from treatment?
  • Should we start treatment now or wait until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What procedures and techniques will be used in treatment?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be extracted?
  • How long will the treatment last?
  • What is the cost and what are my payment options?

Many general questions can be answered during your initial exam. Other, more specific questions about treatment will be answered following our careful analysis. The office of Dr. Rinehart believes in a personalized approach and in-depth planning in order to achieve superior results and overall patient satisfaction.

Following our analysis, we will schedule a consultation to discuss treatment options, the time frame of treatment and take care of financial arrangements. You will leave our office with a clear understanding of what to expect regarding your specific treatment and the length of time it will take.

You can assist us by providing the following at your first visit:

  • Panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months
  • Your insurance card, if you have orthodontic insurance. By providing this, we can give you an overall estimate of the cost

Schedule your initial exam with Dr. Rinehart to get started on your beautiful smile and healthy bite!
