Your First Visit

Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser strive to make your first visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We provide orthodontic treatment to children, teens and adults living in and around Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Virginia’s eastern shore to correct teeth-related issues in the mouth and give them a radiant and perfect smile.

What Happens During My First Visit?

Your first visit is typically a complimentary consultation to evaluate your mouth and discuss the options with orthodontics. The appointment is designed to provide you or your parents with the information they need to make an informed decision about orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontic Exam

During the appointment, we perform an extensive examination of your mouth including taking pictures, digital  x-rays and digital scans of your mouth and head, as needed. Once this is done, we review the charts and notes from your dentist to help us with anything we may need to know.

Evaluation and Consultation

Our orthodontists review and evaluate all available information and craft a treatment plan to correct the orthodontic issues to bring your teeth and bite into alignment. They also present and discuss the most effective options for your treatment plan along with the length of treatment times specific to the treatment options. If there are any concerns or complications that may affect your treatment plans this will be discussed.

From there, they discuss the costs involved with each option and go over the payment and financing options with you to help make the cost more feasible. We work with most insurance companies to determine your out-of-pocket costs prior to beginning your treatment. At that point, they answer any questions you may have as they want to ensure you have all the information you need.

The braces can be applied on this day or whenever you are ready to begin treatment.

How Long Does My First Visit Take?

We typically block an hour for your visit although it may take less time. We never rush you or let you leave with any unanswered questions; therefore, we want you to take as much time as you need.

What Do I Need to Bring to My First Visit?

It is our goal to make your first visit as streamlined as possible. To help in the process, we ask that you bring:

  • Dental insurance information
  • Previous x-rays or scans (taken in last year)

If you live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake or Virginia’s eastern shore, or the surrounding areas, and are considering orthodontics, please contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation with Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser.
