Your First Visit
We are always excited to meet new patients and discuss their orthodontic needs. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. It will give you an opportunity to meet Dr. Margherita and ask any questions you may have. At the time of the initial appointment some children will not benefit from early intervention yet will benefit when they are older. If your child is not ready for treatment Dr. Margherita will place your child on an observation program to monitor growth and development, and will begin treatment at a later date. Dr. Margherita will wait until the appropriate time to make treatment as quick, simple, and inexpensive as possible. His philosophy of treatment timing is that although orthodontic treatment is possible at any age, there is an ideal time when the most conservative approach will present the best result. This appointment will provide you with all the information you will need to make an informed decision about orthodontic treatment.
