What to Expect During Your First Visit

At Langley Orthodontics, we want your first visit to our practice to be as comfortable, informative and productive as possible.


What happens during my first visit to Langley Orthodontics?

During your first consultation appointment with us, you'll meet with one of our doctors and our new patient coordinator for a discussion about your needs. You will also have digital photographs taken.

After a full review your dental and health history, the orthodontists will examine you thoroughly, to asses your orthodontic treatment needs.

We will describe the orthodontic process to you carefully, and show you a video that demonstrates the various evaluation and record taking steps. 

Next, we'll review your orthodontic treatment options, the approximate duration of each treatment type, and the costs involved. Most importantly, we address your questions and concerns about your treatment choices. 

If the patient is a child, the parent should be present at this time, since the responsibilities of all parties involved will be discussed in detail.

Interested in Invisalign?

If you are interested in Invisalign treatment, Dr. Kanani will perform an assessment of candidacy for this type of treatment. Dr. Kanani has treated several hundred Invisalign patients, and so if you have been told in the past that you aren't an Invisalign candidate, Dr. Kanani may still be able to treat you.
