Your First Visit

Begin with the end in mind. Dr. Bauer believes the stability of a case is determined before the braces even go on. Don't be fooled by the "one-size-fits-all" treatment. Great results aren't found in a special bracket or magic wires, but through careful diagnosis and planning.

Dr. Bauer prides himself on providing each and every patient with their own individualized treatment plan. By taking the time in the beginning before the braces go on to accurately diagnose and treatment plan, Dr. Bauer can insure the best results, shortest treatment time, and most stable result.

Your first visit to our office will be a chance for us to get acquainted and to answer your orthodontic questions. Dr. Bauer will conduct a thorough oral examination in which he will determine the specific course of treatment needed and will answer any remaining questions that you may have. A treatment plan will be formulated and reviewed and treatment time and costs will be discussed.

The first orthodontic exam does not always result in a recommendation for immediate treatment. After evaluating a patient, Dr. Bauer may simply want to check him or her periodically while the permanent teeth erupt and the jaws and face continue to grow. During this observation phase, many potential problems can be kept to a minimum and the duration of orthodontic treatment can be greatly reduced.

We know that orthodontic treatment is an investment that will last a lifetime and that choosing the right orthodontist is an important part of that decision. Keeping this in mind, we are confident that the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere of our office combined with our experienced and friendly doctor and team will make for a positive and memorable experience for everyone involved.
