What To Expect At Your First Visit

Welcome to Guymon Orthodontics! We pride ourselves on being good listeners, excited collaborators, and trusted experts—in that order. We do some of our most important work before treatment even begins! Your smile journey starts with a complimentary consultation in our Logan or Hyrum office. This initial appointment is all about determining your treatment goals and building a custom plan that works for your needs, lifestyle, and budget. We know orthodontic treatment is a big decision and want you to feel confident in our care from start to finish. With that in mind, let’s look at what you can expect from your first visit with our expert team!

Finding the perfect treatment plan for you

Whichever location you choose, you’ll be warmly greeted by our front desk team when you arrive. After introducing you to a few members of our talented team, you’ll be given a brief tour to help you feel more comfortable with your surroundings. We’ll then sit down with you to review your medical and dental history forms. Following this, we’ll take a few digital photographs and X-rays of your smile for our diagnostic records. These give us a good idea of what’s happening beneath the surface to understand your needs better.

Once these are complete, it’s time to meet the doctor! Dr. Guymon will perform a quick and painless examination of your teeth and jaws. He’ll use this information along with the diagnostic records to provide you with a customized treatment plan. The diagnostic records will also be used to track the progress of your teeth as they move throughout the treatment process.

It’s important to use that you feel confident in each step of your orthodontic journey with us. We never want you to feel rushed through appointments, especially not the first one! You can expect to spend about an hour with us for your initial evaluation. This gives us plenty of time to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have. We’ll also cover a range of important topics, including:

  • any oral issues present that orthodontics can correct
  • whether treatment is needed now or if it would be better to delay it until the appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have occurred
  • if any permanent teeth will need to be removed before beginning treatment
  • what treatment options are available to address the problem
  • the estimated treatment tim
  • the investment required
  • any payment options available to you

You won’t find any cookie-cutter treatment with our practice! We know that every smile is unique, and every patient has their own specific needs. Dr. Guymon’s personalized treatment plans lead to a rewarding orthodontic experience and exceptional results our patients love.

Investing in a healthier smile

We’re not here to surprise you with hidden line items or last-minute add-ons. Once you’ve decided on a treatment plan with Dr. Guymon, we’ll walk you through everything it includes. No two smiles are alike, and the treatment costs will vary even in similar cases. Many factors go into determining the total cost, including the severity of the case, the appliances used, and more. However, we’ll make sure you know exactly what to expect before we move forward with treatment.

Investing in your orthodontic health comes with many short- and long-term benefits. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best orthodontic care whenever you need it! That’s why we offer affordable payment plans to fit every budget and accept most major credit cards. We also work with many insurance plans and will be happy to help you with your claims and paperwork.

What happens next?

After your consultation, we’ll schedule an appointment for you to have your orthodontic appliance placed. Your comfort and trust are always our top priority, so we’ll be sure to let you know exactly what we’re doing before we do it. You’ll also have access to our team should you have any questions or concerns about what’s happening. We do everything we can to make this visit as comfortable and relaxed for you as possible!

Regular follow-up visits are an essential part of any treatment process. Depending on your treatment plan, you’ll be scheduled to see Dr. Guymon every 6-10 weeks or so. He’ll use these appointments to check that everything is progressing as it should be and adjust your appliance if necessary. If you’re wearing braces, the wire and elastics may be changed at this time as well.

We try to schedule appointments for a day and time that are convenient for you, but we know that things sometimes happen that may cause you to run late or miss your appointment. If this occurs, we simply ask that you let us know as soon as possible so we can reschedule. This will help us keep your treatment plan on track!
