Every smile starts with a complimentary initial consultation and we can’t wait to meet
During your free initial consultation you will meet Dr. Mendlik and our team, tour the office and learn more about orthodontics. We will focus on understanding your needs and creating a customized treatment plan just for you. You should plan to spend at least an hour with us for your first appointment.
As part of your initial consultation we will take digital photographs and x-rays and Dr. Mendlik
will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth. We may also take an impression-less model of your teeth using our iTero digital scanner. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and our Treatment Coordinator will discuss with you the treatment plan that Dr. Mendlik recommends as well as the appointments necessary to begin your orthodontic journey. You will also meet with our Financial Coordinator to discuss the cost of your proposed treatment, insurance benefits and payment options.
We value our patient’s time and if your treatment plan allows, we can even offer same-day starts for braces or Invisalign, clear aligners.
Appointments and Scheduling
We understand how important your time is and will make every attempt to schedule as many
appointments as possible before or after school or work hours. When scheduling appointments,
please let our Scheduling Coordinator know the days and times that work best for you.
On average, most regular appointments for adjustments and progress checks in our office are
about 20 minutes long, every four to eight weeks. We specifically schedule our longer
appointments during school hours. In doing so, we can free up before and after-school time for
as many of our shorter, regular, appointments as possible. We will gladly provide excuses that
can be provided to schools or employers following your appointments.
Missing or frequently rescheduling appointments can ultimately delay the completion of your
orthodontic treatment. If you are not able to keep your scheduled appointment we kindly ask
that you provide our office with at least 24 hours notice.
