At your first visit Dr. Aubin will try to get to know your needs and goals. By understanding an individual’s desires we can hope to bring you the best in treatment. During the process, Dr. Aubin will do a thorough exam and give you a preliminary plan of action. Some patients will be placed on recall until Dr. Aubin deems it appropriate to begin treatment based on the individual.
When it is time to begin treatment, Ronda, the office coordinator will set up the appointments and discuss your financial responsibilities.
At the second appointment diagnostic records are made to confirm the treatment approach that was discussed during the 1st. visit. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history, clinical examination; plaster study models of the teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and X-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, maras, etc.) usually takes from one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment. Our regular office hours are Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Our receptionist is on call Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM so don’t hesitate to call. Patients are seen by appointment. If you are unable to reach our receptionist, Dr. Aubin also provides his direct emergency number. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately and cancel only if it is an emergency.
