It’s never too late to correct your smile!

The ORTHODONTIST is a highly skilled specialist with expertise in aligning and coordinating teeth and jaws.

What to expect on you first appointment with the orthodontist

The initial consultation is an appointment that lasts approximately 60 minutes. During this visit, Dr. Rizkallah will make a thorough review of your medical history and discuss your goals and expectations regarding the treatment of orthodontics.

Here are the steps :

  • a brief examination with a panoramic x-ray
  • photography of the face and teeth
  • an intra-oral and extra-oral clinical examination
  • assessment of the need for treatment or no treatment
  • discussion of treatment options and presentation of the different types of orthodontic appliances that can be used
  • evaluation of the duration of treatment or, if not, the best time to start treatment
  • discussion of the possibility of collaborating with other dental specialists.
  • presentation of the cost of the treatment and the different payment methods.

Our patients too young to begin orthodontic treatment will be placed on a recall list. This will permit Dr. Rizkallah to follow up with their growth and tooth development. This service, which is usually offered free of charge, will allow us to get better acquainted to your child’s specific needs and thus facilitate an easier transition when it is time to start treatment.

A report of your visit accompanied by a copy of the radiograph will be sent to your dentist.
