Typically, after having been referred to Carus Orthodontics by your general dentist, an initial consult appointment will be made for you or your child with one of our specialized Doctors. There is normally no charge for the initial consult. Use this time to ask any questions you may have about treatment and about Carus Orthodontics. If you decide to schedule an appointment with us, there are a few things you should know about your first visit.
On your first visit to Carus Orthodontics Group, we will evaluate your orthodontic needs, determine if treatment is needed, and estimate the length and cost of the treatment. If we determine that your treatment should begin at a later date, due to insufficient development, we will suggest periodic visits to our office until you are ready for treatment.
When you are ready to begin your orthodontic treatment a "Diagnostic Records" appointment will be scheduled to obtain the necessary information to formulate a precise diagnosis and treatment plan.
Providing our patients with the highest quality and affordable orthodontics has been our fundamental goal for years. Which means our focus everyday is to see that you receive all the special care and attention that quality orthodontic treatment demands.
