Your First Visit with Dr. Ellis
Your first visit to our orthodontic office is an exciting time! It's a chance for us to get acquainted, and for you to learn about the treatments and services available at Ellis Orthodontics. We understand that some patients are more nervous than excited about their first trip to the orthodontist. You have our promise that your visit will be comfortable and informative; we will do our best to make it fun, too!
Expect your first visit to last about 45 minutes. After checking in and filling out any needed paperwork, you will meet our new patient coordinator. Your new patient coordinator will assist Dr. Ellis during your examination and then help guide you through the orthodontic process and answer any additional questions you may have. At the completion of your first visit, you will have the answer to a number of questions.
Can orthodontic treatment benefit me (or my child)?
What general procedures will be used to correct the problem?
Are any options available (or recommended) for my treatment?
Should I get treatment now, or is it better to wait?
How much does treatment cost? Are payment plans available?
How long do you expect treatment should take?
