At Saddle Creek Orthodontics, in Memphis, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is your most important one! The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for small children. However, your first visit at Saddle Creek Orthodontics will be completely painless. This is what you can expect:
You will be warmly greeted by our team, introduced to Board-Certified Orthodontist Dr. Kyle Fagala, and shown around our office. Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth and, if necessary, a panoramic and cephalometric X-ray. These images are necessary to visualize your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.
After reviewing these records, Dr. Fagala will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan. Dr. Fagala will point out specific areas of concern and demonstrate the correction that can be expected by showing photos and videos of similar cases as needed. He will take as much time as necessary to answer your questions and determine what method of treatment is best for you. Dr. Fagala and his assistant will then walk you through the process, explaining everything from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options. Our goal is to make sure that no question goes unanswered.
Orthodontic treatment is a process, involving a series of orthodontic visits. We value the relationship that we will build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you are receiving the best orthodontic care possible. Once all of your questions and concerns have been addressed, we will start your treatment that same day! We value your time and don’t want you to “waste” a visit.
