Patient Information

Your Initial Exam

At Kurti Orthodontics, we are happy to provide you or members of your family with a complimentary exam. During this exam, we will look at your mouth and examine the need for treatment. From there, we will determine the best course of action and will answer any questions you may have regarding the prescribed treatment.

Following the exam, you will spend time with our treatment coordinator who will give you a short demonstration regarding your treatment, showing you how they work. Additionally, you will be shown some payment options. From there, you will be able to make another appointment.

When children are being examined, it is strongly advised that a parent or guardian be present during the initial exam. Starting treatment often involves procedures such as x-rays, impressions of the teeth and intraoral or facial photographs. Once these orthodontic records are taken, patients will be moved to a chair in the main operatory for the installation of braces and archwires, as well as instruction in the care of the mouth and braces during treatment.
