Start Your Journey to a More Confident Smile

At Central Illinois Orthodontics, we understand orthodontic treatment is a big commitment — so we want to make sure you’re informed, comfortable, and confident at every step of your smile journey.

During your first visit to our Peoria or Metamora office, Dr. Long and our friendly team will welcome you like family and answer all of your questions to help you get the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.

What to Expect at
Your First Free Visit

When you visit our office for the first time, our top priority is getting to know you, understanding your concerns, and making sure you feel comfortable with our office and your treatment plan designed by Dr. Long.

Let’s Get to Know Each Other

First, we’ll introduce you to everyone at Central Illinois Orthodontic Associates, discuss your insurance coverage, and provide you with a free consultation.


Starting Treatment

If you decide you’d like to begin orthodontic treatment, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to get you started.

Our exams and consultations are thorough, and we’ll always strive to make you as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment process.

Initial Exam & Treatment Plan

We believe orthodontic treatment is not “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’ll go over your tailored treatment plan and discuss the desired results you’re looking for. We’ll give you an estimate of how long your treatment process will last and how much you can expect insurance to cover.

Our goal is 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.
