What to Expect
Buckhead Orthodontics offers complimentary consultations for both children and adults. This gives you the opportunity to meet Dr. Everson and his caring staff, and get a tour of Dr. Everson's state-of-the-art office showcasing the latest orthodontic technologies. During you first visit, we will take diagnostic photos. We recommend that you bring in any recent panoramic x-ray taken by your dentist. If needed, we may take a complimentary panoramic x-ray if a current one is not available to help with the diagnosis.
Dr. Everson will conduct a comprehensive orthodontic exam reviewing you medical/ dental history and radiographs during which if you are indicated for treatment, he will recommend a customized treatment plan. Our financial specialist will discuss financial information, including insurance options, and flexible, interest-free payment plans. If your child is not indicated for treatment, they will be placed in our "Bucky Monitoring Program", which will watch for skeletal and dental growth until they are ready for treatment.
Once a treatment plan is agreed upon, the next step is diagnostic records, which often can be completed the same day as your consult appointment. The diagnostic records appointment is a quick 20-minute appointment, which consists of diagnostic model impressions, photographs, a panoramic x-ray, and a cephalometric x-ray. Dr. Everson uses this information to measure and analyze the best way to treat your case. Treatment will then start at your next visit.
