Your First Visit

Our goal is to give you the beautiful, healthy smile that you’ve always wanted. We understand that committing to orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.


Your initial consultation will allow you to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options best meet your or your child’s needs. During the initial consultation, we will accomplish the following:

  • Review dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays (additional cost), to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
  • If we think you or your child are ready to start treatment we can begin the journey the same day! We will take some measurements and schedule the treatment start appointment. You are on your way!

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have and provide all of the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.


You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and Dr. Thabet or Dr. Othman will start your treatment. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will make every effort to make you comfortable.


Visiting the orthodontist about every four to twelve weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.


You must continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for routine cleanings and dental checkups, especially during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
