What to Expect at Your Appointment


Information From Your Local Urbana & Frederick Orthodontist

Here at The Village Orthodontist, we want all of our patients to feel comfortable from the moment they walk through our doors. For this reason, we strive to provide as much information about examinations ahead of time to lessen any worries that our patients may have. As one of the top orthodontists in Frederick, Dr. Jon A. Moles makes sure to address any questions or concerns that you may have at any part of the treatment process. In order to prepare for your next appointment, find out what you can expect to occur. 

The Initial Exam

The first visit to The Village Orthodontist typically takes 30–45 minutes, giving us just enough time to fully determine exactly what concerns you may have and what we can do to treat them. Dr. Moles makes sure to go through several basic questions with each patient in order to see exactly what the best treatment plan entails. Some of the questions that we look to address at this exam include the following:

Is orthodontic treatment appropriate?
Is treatment appropriate at the time of the exam, or should it be delayed?
What is the expected duration of treatment?
What is the expected cost of treatment? 
Are there multiple treatment options that will be needed to correct the problem?

We can answer most basic questions regarding orthodontic treatment at this initial exam, but more in-depth answers can be provided in follow-up examinations. 

The Appointment For Diagnostic Records

If Dr. Moles determines that orthodontic treatment is right for you, we follow up with an appointment in which we take diagnostic records, including impressions, X-rays, and digital photographs. This data provides Dr. Moles with the information he needs to put a plan of action in place for your treatment.
