Initial Exam & Treatment Plan

We believe orthodontic treatment is not a “one size fits all.” That’s why Dr. Long will sit down with you at your initial consultation, listen to your concerns and objectives, and design a custom treatment plan to meet your needs. He will talk about your tailored treatment plan and discuss the desired results you’re looking for. We’ll give you an estimate on how long your treatment process will last and how much you can expect insurance to cover. It is our goal to make sure you feel supported every step of the way. The initial exam and consultation will usually last about 30 minutes during your first visit to our office. We’ll make sure you get the personalized, professional care that is perfect for you.
