Your First Visit
Bateman Orthodontics

At Bateman Orthodontics, your first visit is an exciting time. It’s a chance for you to meet our team and learn more about the scope of treatment we offer.  We don’t want you to feel rushed so we ask that you plan on spending about an hour with us. This allows for ample time to ask plenty of questions.

Let's Make a Plan

A big part of the first visit and consultation is to determine what treatment may be necessary. During the consultation, we will take photographs of your teeth in their present state. Next, we’ll probably take a series of radiographic (X-ray) images. These enable us to see the position and growth of bones and joints, and if any teeth are remaining below the gum line. In some cases, we may also take an impression (mold) of the teeth. This allows us to make an exact replica of your bite, which helps us understand any underlying bite issues.

After the diagnostic portion of visit, Dr. Bateman will then examine your teeth, bite and gums. He will also ask questions about your oral health and jaw. Then, he will look at the records and images. From there, Dr. Bateman can make a proper diagnosis, recommend treatment options, if necessary, and finalize a treatment plan. Treatment can begin right away or at a later time, depending on the developmental stage of the teeth and gums. 

Discussing Your Treatment

Once your treatment plan has been discussed, we will also explain our fees and payment options that may be available to you. Whether you’re starting now or later, please feel free to ask as many questions as possible. We can review with you your treatment choices, financial concerns, general questions about treatment, our office or anything else that may come to mind. Our goal is have you leave our office with a better understanding of how we can help you get a beYOUtiful smile.
