What to Expect During Your First Visit

At Coquitlam Family Orthodontics, we want to make your first visit with us as comfortable, educational and easy as possible.


What Does the first consultation at Coquitlam Family Orthodontics involve?

During your first consultation with our team, you'll start by meeting with our new patient coordinator and one of our doctors, and you'll also have digital photographs taken.

After a complete review of your dental and overall health history, your orthodontists perform a thorough examination, to in order to asses your orthodontic treatment needs.

We will discuss the orthodontic process with you, and review the various  evaluation and record taking steps it entails.

Next, we'll go over the orthodontic treatment options available to you, and the duration of treatment and costs associated with each. And of course, we will address any questions or concerns you may have.

If the patient is a child or a teen, we ask that at least one of hir or her parents is present during this initial consultation, since we will discuss the responsibilities of all parties involved.
