Orthodontics FAQs

Easy, Painless, Simple

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes feel intimidating, no matter your age. You can rest assured that your first visit to Alborzi Orthodontics will be straightforward, completely painless, and over before you know it.

Every Alborzi smile starts with a free consultation where you will have the opportunity to meet our team and learn more about orthodontics, receive your complete initial exam, and discover which treatment options will best meet your needs.

During your free consultation, Dr. Alborzi will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms.
  • Provide a complete oral exam with the latest non-invasive scanning technology to determine if treatment is necessary.
  • Determine if treatment is necessary at this time or if we should continue to observe you or your child’s smile as it develops.
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan.
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans.

Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will take some digital photographs of your teeth. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue, and to plan and track your treatment.

Get Your Custom Treatment Plan

After reviewing your records, Dr. Alborzi will personally join you in a private consultation room to discuss your personalized treatment plan.

Dr. Alborzi will point out specific areas of concern and show you what kind of corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.

She will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you.

Dr. Alborzi and her assistant will then walk you through your treatment process, explaining everything from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.

We’ll give you all the information you’ll need to know about your orthodontic treatment so that you can choose what's best for you—no strings attached.

If we determine you need treatment, and you decide to proceed, we will schedule the visits necessary for Dr. Alborzi to get you started on your way toward your new smile!

If we feel it is best to wait, we will set up a visit for re-evaluation.

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits. We value the relationship that we’ll build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you’re receiving the best orthodontic care possible.

We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit, so you can start your treatment that same day once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns. Please attend this meeting along with all who will help you with the decision making.
