To help you ease into your orthodontic treatment, our A Dental Care team is happy to tell you what to expect during your first appointment with your orthodontist, Dr. Firoz Lalani.

When you come into our office, we will likely give you a tour to make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Then, you will experience the following steps:

Step 1: First, your orthodontist will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine if you need treatment. If you do need treatment, the examination will help your orthodontist know where to start. The exam will include taking X-rays and photographs of your mouth. Your orthodontist will explain any alignment issues you have.

Step 2: If you do need treatment, our team will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to help your orthodontist determine the best treatment plan for you. Then, we will inform you on the treatment we think is necessary, explain the treatment costs, and discuss your financing options and payment plans.

Step 3: Your orthodontist will thoroughly explain the recommended treatment to you. You will know all about the suggested appliance and you will also receive an estimate of the treatment time that will likely be needed.

Your first appointment will be simple and easy. If you have any questions about your first orthodontic appointment in Houston, Texas, or if you would like to learn more, please feel free to call our office today. We are more than happy to help you, and we look forward to hearing from you!
