What To Expect At Your Initial Consultation


Welcome to McFarland Orthodontics!

Our goal is to give you a beautiful smile, and we want to make sure that you have a wonderful experience with us along the way.

We understand that you may be anxious about the process of getting braces, especially on your first visit. Here is a preview of what to expect at your initial consultation.

From the first phone call to your consultation appointment, we make the process efficient and easy. Once the new patient appointment has been scheduled, you can go right to our website at www.macsmiles.com to fill out your New Patient forms. We would also be happy to look up your insurance benefits along with any Flex plans.

When you arrive at our office for the first time, you will be greeted by our new patient coordinator in the waiting area.

We will give you a tour of our stellar facility, so you will know your way around during future visits.

Next we will take your free panoramic x-rays. These images will allow Dr. McFarland to see if there is a need for braces and to evaluate your bite. X-rays also enable us to see what’s going on underneath the gums, the position and growth of bones and joints, and the teeth that are still below the gum line. (As a courtesy, we will send the x-rays to your dental office so you don’t have to pay for new ones. Just ask us!)

Next we will head into the new patient room where we will explain the process of orthodontics. Dr. McFarland will come in and do a full examination of your teeth and bite. He will recommend the type of braces or Invisalign that would best suit your needs, and how long treatment may be. We will make sure all of your questions are answered so you are completely comfortable.

Our patient coordinator will follow up to make sure you are familiar you’re your treatment plan step-by-step. They will also explain the financial details such as the cost, insurance options, and payment plans.

Lastly you will have the opportunity to get started with your orthodontic treatment at that time to make it as convenient as possible with work and school schedules.

We look forward to meeting you, and we can’t wait to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. So why not take the first step now… Call us today to schedule your complimentary consultation!
