What to expect at your initial orthodontic consultation

Your first visit to our orthodontic clinic is nothing to be nervous about!

The initial appointment provides an opportunity for you and your family to meet our team, learn about the different types of orthodontic treatment and find out what treatment may be suitable for you.

Your first visit will include the following:Initial consult

  • Assessment and measurements of your teeth, bite and jaw position
  • Record taking (photographs, x-rays and study models as required)
  • A customised treatment plan explaining what treatment (if any) is recommended and why

You will then spend time with one of our knowledgeable Treatment Coordinators. Your Treatment Coordinator will show you videos on the recommended treatment, explain what appointments are needed, give you a summary of the payment options and item numbers for your health fund, and answer any questions that you may have.

If there are multiple treatment options available to you, we may require a second treatment planning consultation to discuss your options in more detail.

If you are ready to schedule an initial consultation for you or your child to be assessed by Dr Pepicelli, Dr Sable or Dr Newby, please contact our practice.
