Your Personal Consultation

During your first consultation, Dr. Miller will conduct a thorough exam to assess your individual condition and discuss your potential treatment options. A follow-up visit may be necessary for additional diagnostics, such as X-rays, digital imaging of your mouth, and physical impressions of your teeth.

Dr. Miller encourages your questions, and during your initial consultation he will address issues including:

  • The best treatment options for your unique condition
  • Whether treatment should begin immediately or postponed until appropriate physical development, teeth eruption or other factors transpire
  • The duration of your treatment
  • Treatment cost and financing options

  • Panoramic dental X-rays taken within the preceding six months
  • Orthodontic insurance information, as applicable
