Your First Appointment

Your child will undergo an orthodontic examination. This includes a consultation, a panoramic x-ray and infection control.

We will then be able to do an evaluation and determine if or when orthodontic treatment is to begin. This will include a cephalometric x-ray, clinical photographs, a diagnostic treatment plan as well as a quotation for orthodontic treatment. The treatment plan is presented and discussed with you.

The first consultation is a lengthy appointment and can take up to an hour and a half to complete.

Please bring the following with you to this appointment:

  • Proof of identity f the person responsible for the account.
  • Proof of membership of your medical aid (if you would like these details to appear on your statement)

The cost estimated for orthodontic treatment will be provided to you, in writing.

Due to the age of the child, 10 years and younger, a full orthodontic examination is not always necessary.

The initial orthodontic examination will include consultation, a panoramic x-ray and infection control. An evaluation is done to determine if or when orthodontic treatment is to commence.

An appointment for the full orthodontic examination may then be made at a later date. This examination will be a 90 minute appointment.
