What Happens After The Initial Consultation?

Once your initial consultation is completed, we are ready to kick-off your orthodontic treatment journey. We will begin by scheduling an appointment to complete any diagnostic record the doctor still needs. Once your treatment plan is established, your next appointment will be for the placement of your orthodontic appliance! Typically, these appointments take only thirty minutes to an hour. Our team will be there to guide you through the entire process and to make you feel like you are at home.

Scheduling Appointments

To keep your treatment plan on track, you will need to visit our Portland office every six to twelve weeks as prescribed by Dr. Garfinkle. Our schedule coordinator will work to ensure that your appointments work as seamlessly into your calendar as possible.

We understand that life is full of unexpected surprises. If you are running behind schedule or will not be able to make your appointment, let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Visiting The Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment
