Initial Consultation
 

At your complimentary initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Ritoli for a comprehensive orthodontic examination. Whether you are excited or apprehensive about beginning treatment, the rewards are immeasureable if you're willing to make the commitment. While we'll be doing everything possible to give you the highest quality care available, the success of your treatment will also depend on you. 

 

What to Expect

When you first arrive you will be greeted in the Reception Room by Sue, our Appointment Coordinator who will provide you with a few forms to fill out which you can also find under "Patient Center - Patient Forms". You will then be given a tour of our office and guided to the Treatment Room.  There you will meet with Dr. Ritoli and an Orthodontic Assistant. Please feel free to ask any questions and voice any concerns you may have.

Preliminary Examination

Your first orthodontic visit will consist of a preliminary examination and discussion of available treatment options. This important visit will address your orthodontic needs, determine the proper timing to begin treatment, and present you with a custom treatment plan. During the initial examination for each patient, we encourage you to ask any questions you may have.

Diagnostic Records

If you are ready to begin orthodontic treatment, we will acquire the initial diagnostic records at your next appointment. This information is used to create a custom treatment plan and track the progress of your orthodontic care.

Treatment Consultation

After we have evaluated your diagnostic records, we conduct a consultation appointment to explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions. We believe that the more you know about and actively participate in your orthodontic care, the better your results will be.
