Your First Visit in Greensboro, NC

Irvin Orthodontics serves the local residents of Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem, NC, who are looking to improve their smile. We want to make certain that your first visit to our office is a wonderful, relaxed and productive part of your journey to straighter teeth and a beautiful smile.

What Should You Expect on Your First Visit?

During your first visit to our office, we genuinely enjoy showing you around our office, introducing you to our staff and getting to know your concerns and goals for orthodontic treatment. At Irvin Orthodontics we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed, and we encourage you to explore our full suite of treatment options. For that reason, our goal is to make sure your first appointment is always complimentary. Dr. Irvin is delighted to have the opportunity to show you what he can do with your smile, as well as the necessary procedures to help you achieve a beautiful smile so that you have the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about whether or not orthodontics is right for you.

Questions You May Have During Your First Visit

Your first consultation is a fantastic opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have about our treatment plans and what can be done to improve your smile. During this consultation, we will address any questions or concerns you have, in addition to being sure to discuss the following issues:

  • Do you have a condition that orthodontics can solve?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

Your Second Appointment

In some cases, it may be necessary for Dr. Irvin to schedule a second appointment to speak with you after undergoing a more detailed analysis of your diagnostic records. As advocates of your care, we at Irvin Orthodontics believe that it is crucial to analyze each patient’s individual needs carefully, knowing that in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction. We want our patients to have a clear understanding of their needs, what appliances will be used, how treatment will benefit them and how long treatment should take. Furthermore, in the case of your child, if it’s too early for treatment, he or she will be placed into our complimentary growth guidance program, which includes periodic monitoring until real treatment is ready to begin. In fact, many children in Dr. Irvin’s practice spent time in our growth guidance program and as a result, their parents have saved time and money by catching any developing issues before they advance too far.

How Much Does Your First Visit Cost in Greensboro?

Dr. Alan Irvin is happy to offer affordable payment solutions via CareCredit® and in-house financing.
