Your First Visit

At your first visit to our office, Dr. DiFranco will give a complimentary Comprehensive Oral Examination, and determine which type of Orthodontic Treatment is best suited for your case. This typically takes a half hour. At this visit, we will explain your insurance benefits, and the out of pocket investment for treatment.

If time allows, Dr. DiFranco may decide to get a set of Orthodontic Records the same day including photos, impressions, and x-rays. Typically an initial examination and full records will take about 1 hour.
