Choosing the right orthodontist for you or your child is a very personal decision. Perhaps you’ve never before seen an orthodontist, or maybe you are wanting a second opinion. Our patients usually report how much happier they are because of Dr. Tom’s very thorough explanation of their bite problem and the customized plan for their treatment. We never take for granted that you already have an understanding of your bite problem or planned treatment. That way you always get a highly comprehensive explanation.

At Your First Appointment:
During the first appointment (approximately 1 hour) several important things will happen. You will be greeted by Cathy, our treatment coordinator. She will review your personal information, health history, and the chief concerns about your smile or bite. Then Dr. Tom Atkinson will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and jaws to determine how you can best benefit from orthodontic treatment and when treatment should begin.
We will be giving you all the information to make your decisions about treatment at this visit. If treatment is indicated and you are ready, we will have time set aside to get started with some of the procedures.
