Your First Visit

We want you to feel comfortable and at home when you come to our office. Our doctors and Smilemaker Team love talking about your smile. We talk our patients through every step and let them know what to expect on the journey to a beautiful, healthy smile. We want every experience that you have with us to be a positive one.

At your first visit, you will be greeted and welcomed by our Treatment Coordinator will discuss your concerns and goals for your smile. We will complete the necessary photos and x-rays and Dr. Hannon will meet with you to discuss treatment options. We will go over the treatment plan, financial arrangements and scheduling. Many times patients elect to start treatment that same day. When this can be accommodated, it is truly an exciting day.

If a patient is not yet ready for treatment, we will recommend the patient enter an observation phase where we will follow growth and development to determine the appropriate time for treatment. In our 35 + years of experience with many orthodontic cases, we have learned to allow nature to take its' course whenever possible. However, when we see a need to help our patient's teeth erupt to accomplish goals; we strive for a minimalist approach and will begin a limited course of treatment to insure the teeth are in proper alignment in order to maximize our patient’s growth.
