On the first visit to our office, we will complete an initial examination and determine your treatment needs. During your one-on-one time with Dr. Bui, she will review your orthodontic problems, give you treatment options, an estimated treatment time as well as an estimate of costs involved.

When you are ready to proceed with treatment, we will take diagnostic records to determine the detailed course of treatment. Records typically include impressions of the teeth, digital images of the patient's face and teeth, and X-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move.
First, we will discuss the final treatment plan with you and answer any questions you may have about the process. We will then place the appliances (braces, expanders, etc.). We will also demonstrate proper use, care and cleaning techniques that will be required.
You'll then see us at regular intervals, which are typically 6 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment. What is unique is that Dr. Bui will be performing your adjustments at every visit.
