Complementary Consultation

At your first visit to our office, you and/or your family will personally have an appointment to meet Dr. Chung. She will learn as much as she can about you to help her eventually design a custom-made treatment plan. This plan will suit your specific aesthetic, personality, and health needs. Diagnostic records will either be made at this first visit or a second scheduled visit. Complete diagnostic records will typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination, plaster study models of teeth, photos of the patient's face and teeth, and X-rays. This information is used to provide measurements for Dr. Chung to determine the best course for an individualized treatment plan. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.

Your Second Visit

After Dr. Chung has evaluated your records, she will have a one-on-one appointment to discuss you or your child's treatment in detail. At this time she will go over the cost of your individualized treatment and timeline.

Regular Appointments

The appointment in which you receive your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes 1 to 2 hours. You will then see us at regular intervals that are typically 4 to 8 weeks apart for orthodontic adjustments. Each adjustment takes 20 to 40 minutes, depending on whether or not repairs are needed. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for out patients and ask that you extent the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
