First Visit Exam
Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by our receptionist, Karen, or one of our treatment coordinators, Mary Will, Jennifer, or Donna. Mary Will, Jennifer, or Donna will assist you in checking-in. Then she will give you a tour of the office and escort you and/or your child to our consultation room for your first visit with Dr. Collins.
On your first visit, our objective is to be able to look at the long-term needs for you and/or your child. At this visit, one of three outcomes will be determined.
-Treatment is needed now.
-Treatment is not needed at all.
-Treatment will be needed-
|but the timing is such that it should be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have developed.|
Collins will conduct a thorough examination of your face, mouth, teeth,
and jaws, and will explain to you what may need correction. We have
a neat computer program that simulates and demonstrates many of the
things that we do. We will present to you possible treatment approaches
and possible financial arrangements. If treatment is recommended now,
we may proceed and take diagnostic records.
