First Orthodontic Visit | Invisalign Specialists Louisville | Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics

Your smile starts at your first visit

At Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics, we understand how choosing orthodontic treatment can be a big decision, and we’re here to work with you every step of the way.

During your first visit to one of our five locations, we will help you to get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment options. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.

Initial consultation

Your first visit will consist of an initial examination and a discussion of your potential treatment options. This important visit will allow the orthodontist to determine what options are best for your goals.

  1. Review & examine
    During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history and provide a complete oral exam, taking X-rays if necessary. We’ll also determine if this is the right time to begin treatment.
  2. Treatment needs
    After understanding your primary goals for orthodontic treatment, we’ll discuss the options available to you. We encourage questions from both the patient and parents and provide ample time to get them answered.
  3. Flexible payment options
    Our goal is to provide platinum level care at a competitive cost. We accept most insurance coverage plans and offer financing options to make the smile of your dreams affordable.
  4. Start your treatment
    Let’s get started! Once you’re ready, we can book your first appointment.

Your first visit

During this time,we’ll also address commonly
asked questions about orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

After we have evaluated your records, we will conduct a treatment consultation to explain all aspects of your orthodontic treatment in detail. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and parents, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.

Your first visit
