Your First Visit to Coquitlam Family Orthodontics
We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office.
During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office. In
addition, we hope to begin to get to know you and learn about your
chief concerns and your goals for orthodontic treatment.
visit is free because Dr. Couto does not want to set up any
barriers to you exploring your orthodontic treatment options. Even if
you are not sure if orthodontics is right for you or if this is the
best time, Dr. Couto welcomes the opportunity to show you what is
possible and what is involved so you can make an informed decision.
Our goal is to provide you with as much information as possible during
this first visit. Therefore photographs and X-rays of the teeth and
face are taken at no charge in order to fully examine the teeth, face,
dental and skeletal structures.
After Dr. Couto’s clinical
examination and a review of the photos and X-rays, Dr. Couto and our
treatment coordinator can usually
provide you detailed treatment options including optimal timing,
length of time involved, costs, payment options, and insurance
considerations. By the end of this first appointment, you should have
comprehensive information about your treatment options.
Certain patients with particularly difficult problems and/or patients
who require coordination of care among several dental specialists will
require a separate consultation appointment before a treatment plan is
Finally, Dr. Couto will certainly inform you if treatment is not
indicated or if it would be more efficient to wait until a later time
(for example waiting for all the baby teeth to fall out if jaw growth
is within normal limits).
