First Visit in Louisville, KY

Free Consultation and Exam on Your First Visit

Your initial appointment will be an exam and consultation appointment with one of the doctors to evaluate your orthodontic needs. Dr. Perelmuter or Dr. Glatt will do a very thorough evaluation of your teeth, bite and smile. In most cases, we will take diagnostic radiographs, and photographs. This will allow us to decide if orthodontic treatment would be of benefit. We will then explain our findings and review your particular concerns. In the case of children, if orthodontic treatment would best be deferred until additional dental development or skeletal maturation has occurred, you will be placed on an observation schedule for growth and development until the timing is more favorable.

Should treatment be indicated at this time, we will discuss treatment options, estimated treatment length, and financial options. We may schedule a scan or take impressions for study models to allow us to develop a more precise treatment plan, which we may review with you at a subsequent visit. We may be able to begin your treatment the same day.
