First Visit

At your first visit to our office you will be asked to complete a health history form if you haven’t already done so. Please note that you can download and print a health history form from our website, complete it and bring it with you to your first appointment or simply fax it to our office prior to your first visit. Please bring any relevant insurance information with you as well.

At your initial appointment you will be asked to sign-in confirming your arrival. You will be greeted and escorted to the examination and consultation area. We will then take what is referred to as orthodontic records. Records is a process of x-rays and photos which will be utilized to conduct an evaluation so that a treatment plan can be developed, should orthodontics be necessary. Dr. Bellohusen will then introduce himself and answer any questions that you may have. He will then conduct a brief examination of your dental health and condition. Upon reviewing records he will present a preliminary treatment plan and discuss the details and recommendations for care.

You will then be scheduled for your next appointment, at which that time our treatment coordinators will provide an overview of care, the appliances to be utilized in treatment, provide home care instructions and discuss our rewards program. Financial and insurance questions will also be addressed prior to the beginning of treatment.
