Welcome to Your DeWitt, MI Orthodontist’s Office!

Your first orthodontic appointment.

West Orthodontics is proud to offer a wide range of services, including braces and Invisalign, to patients throughout DeWitt, Lansing and the surrounding areas. We are excited to welcome you to your first visit here at our orthodontic office! We look forward to getting to know you and helping you obtain the smile of your dreams!
When you arrive at our office, our patient coordinator will welcome you and provide you with the necessary paperwork to fill out. You will then receive a tour of the office and meet
Dr. West and her dedicated team. You should plan to spend at least 90 minutes with us during your first appointment. This will allow us to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs.

Your Orthodontic Exam

Your orthodontist will take a set of photographs of the teeth in their present state, and then perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, mouth and jaw. During this examination, we may take X-rays to allow us to see what's going on underneath the gums: the position and growth of bones and joints, and the teeth that are still below the gum line. We may also ask questions, such as whether the jaws make noise when the mouth is opening or closing, or if there are any problems chewing or swallowing. All of these details together will allow us to make a proper diagnosis and determine a personalized treatment plan that will work best for your individual case.


Discussing Your Treatment Options

After your exam, treatment may be recommended - either to begin right away or at a later time, depending on the developmental stage of the teeth and jaws. This may be metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, or any of our other services and treatments. In many cases, we'll advise you to return for a periodic check up, until we determine that it's the best time to start.

We will also discuss financial and payment information with you, including an estimated cost of procedures, and insurance information.

Your first visit is the best time to ask questions. We are happy to discuss available treatment options, answer general questions about what to expect at the different stages of the process, and address any of the following:

  • Can orthodontic treatment benefit me (or my child)?

  • What general procedures will be used to correct the problem?

  • Are any options available (or recommended) for my treatment?

  • Should I get treatment now, or is it better to wait?

  • Will tooth extraction be necessary?

  • How much does treatment cost? Are payment plans available?

  • How long do you expect treatment should take?
