Our goal is to give you a healthy, straight, happy and beautiful smile that you have always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. We’ll use the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options, giving you the customized, individual care that you deserve.
Your first consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, as well as learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial examination, and find out which treatment option will best meet your needs. During your consultation, Dr. Anwar Shah will
- Review your dental and medical history forms.
- Provide a complete dental/oral examination, with diagnostic photos and impressions (to make plaster models) to determine if treatment is necessary.
- Help you create a customized treatment plan.
- Discuss all financial information and payment plans.
What happens after the initial consultation?
If you do choose to receive orthodontic treatment at CODO, you will need to schedule your first appointment. Your first appointment is when Dr. Anwar Shah or Dr. Noeen Arshad will place your new orthodontic appliance. Typically, this appointment is no longer than one hour, and then you’re on your way toward your new smile!
Visiting the orthodontist every 4 weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 20-30 minutes. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are scheduled around your busy schedule; so that you will spend less time in the dental chair, and more time enjoying the things you love to do.
We understand that “life happens,” so if you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
