So you’re ready to start orthodontic treatment – how exciting! Your next step is to schedule your first appointment with Farnsworth Family Orthodontics, and we can’t wait to meet you! If you’re wondering what it will be like, keep reading. Here’s what to expect at your first consultation!

Step 1: Schedule Your FREE Consultation

The first step towards getting a straight smile is getting in the door. 

Straightening your smile is a huge milestone in many patients’ lives, and it all starts with that first appointment at Farnsworth Family Orthodontics. With a free consultation, you won’t have to invest anything before you know firsthand how experienced, welcoming, and professional our team is. 

You can schedule your free appointment by visiting our website or calling our office. We’ll get you on the calendar and send you on your way to step two!

Step 2: Meet Your Orthodontic Experts

With our team of professionals on your side, you’ll know your smile is in good hands. 

At Farnsworth Family Orthodontics, we know that your experience in our office is just as important as your treatment plan. You’ll feel welcomed and valued from the moment you walk through our doors. We’ll give you an office tour and introduce you to your smile team right off the bat so you know you’re number one on our priority list. We’ll work hard to make your appointments fun, informative, and easy. You’ll love how dedicated we are to making you smile!

Step 3: X-rays & Exam

Next, we’ll get the show on the road with your first exam.

When we call you back to the exam room, you’ll get the opportunity to meet your treatment coordinator, who will be your one-on-one guide through every step of your orthodontic treatment process. Your TC is there to answer any questions you have, so it’s a good idea to bring questions with you on the day of your first exam. 

Then, we’ll conduct your initial exam. Our friendly records clinician will greet you and conduct a series of  X-rays before passing those images along to your orthodontist for review and treatment recommendation. 

Step 4: Discover Your Treatment Options

Meet with Dr. FarnsworthDr. SorensenDr. Brimhall, or Dr. Shelley to find out which plan is right for your smile!

We offer three treatment options so that you can choose the best one for you and your lifestyle:

Metal Braces: Metal braces are a heavy-duty method for fixing moderate to severe orthodontic issues. Traditional braces straighten your smile over 12-36 months using a system of brackets and wires. 

Clear Braces: Like metal braces, this treatment option uses a system of brackets and wires to straighten your teeth and works well for patients with moderate to severe orthodontic issues. Instead of metal brackets, clear braces use white ceramic brackets that match the color of your teeth, so your treatment is less visible. 

Invisalign: Using a series of clear plastic trays that gradually shift your smile in line over time, Invisalign is practically invisible. Clear aligners are an excellent option for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and treatment can take as little as six months to complete. 

Step 5: Start Treatment

Your straight smile is loading!

Whether you choose to start treatment on the same day of your free consultation or schedule another appointment, you’re about to start the journey of a lifetime. We can’t wait to see you smile!
