So you’ve scheduled your first orthodontist appointment and you’re preparing for a life-changing journey to a beautiful new smile. That’s something to be excited about!

But first, you may have a few questions about the process: “What happens at the first orthodontist appointment? What can I expect?”

We’re here to break it all down – no surprises. Here are 5 things you can expect at your orthodontist consultation with Fritz & Wilson Orthodontics in Holly Springs.

1. You’ll be greeted with smiles!

It’s our goal to make orthodontics a fun and memorable experience, while providing the highest quality of personalized care for your family.

We go above-and-beyond to make you feel comfortable, welcome, and supported along this life-changing journey. We treat you like family here!

2. Dr. Fritz or Dr. Wilson will examine your smile.

Dr. Fritz or Dr. Wilson will become your personal, board-certified orthodontist who you’ll see at each visit! You’ll meet your orthodontist and chat about your smile concerns and goals.

Dr. Fritz or Dr. Wilson will perform a visual exam of your smile and we’ll take a digital scan, x-rays and photos to gain the full picture of your teeth, gums and jaw bones.

We use the advanced iTero® digital scanner to take quick, comfortable digital impressions of your mouth in just a few minutes, without the discomfort and messiness of traditional putty impressions.

Your orthodontist will use all of this information, from your visual exam, digital x-rays and scan, to create your personalized treatment plan!

3. You’ll choose a treatment.

During your first orthodontic appointment, we’ll discuss our treatment options to help you make the best decision for your lifestyle.

You can choose from advanced self-ligating (no elastics) Damon® braces in metal or clear, or clear aligners. Dr. Fritz and Dr. Wilson have the experience necessary to treat you with your preferred option!

4. We’ll create a payment plan that suits your needs.

We’ll work out a financial plan and discuss insurance coverage too. We offer 0% interest in-house financing, as well as a number of treatment discounts (pay-in-full discount, family member discount and military discount.)

We’ll also calculate your dental insurance benefit if you have insurance! We accept most insurance plans, including TRICARE for our military families. Our team will submit your insurance claims for you to help you receive the maximum benefit.

5.Start smiling right away!

The next step is transforming your smile. We’re proud to be a ‘same day orthodontist’, which means you can get braces on your very first visit. When we reach out to you to schedule your complimentary consultation, let us know that you want to get started right away!

If you choose custom clear aligners, your orthodontist will take quick digital scans of your smile, which we’ll use to design and print your custom clear aligners in-house with our 3D printer, or send to Spark.

Finally, you’ll start braces treatment or pop your aligners in place, and watch your smile transform over the coming months!
