First Visit

At Utah Orthodontic Care, our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and provide the right kind of treatment for all of your orthodontic needs. We love meeting and getting to know our new patients, which is why we set aside an hour for your initial visit. Here is what you can expect when you meet with us for the first time.

Answering Questions

We know that you have a lot of questions, so we will spend time introducing ourselves, getting to know you, and then addressing the questions that you have about your orthodontic treatment. We will likely cover topics such as:

  • How orthodontics can help you
  • Your treatment and procedure options
  • The best time for treatment, now or later?
  • How long treatment may last
  • How much treatment may cost

We also encourage you to write down a list of your own questions and bring it with you to your visit. If you bring in your insurance information, we may be able to provide a more accurate estimate of the cost of your treatment.


For our first-time patients, we may like to perform a diagnostic exam to facilitate treatment. Diagnostics often take only about a half hour to complete. Depending on your condition, we may take X-rays and photos of your mouth during the exam, as well as impressions for our records. This exam will help us to better tailor your treatment to your individual needs.

Free Consultation Visit

Although we hope to end your first visit by giving you a clear understanding what lies ahead for your treatment, we may also schedule a consultation visit with you to discuss your options in-depth, as well as figure out payments and a time frame for your treatments and visits.
