What to Expect at your First Appointment

treatment coordinator orthodontic consultation

Our orthodontic consultations are $175 which include a personalised treatment plan by our Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Daniel De Angelis, as well as X-rays, scans and photos.

If you decide to go ahead with treatment, the cost of the initial consult is taken off the cost of the retention phase of your treatment. If you have private health insurance, you may also be able to claim some of the cost of your initial consult, depending on your level of cover.

When you book your consultation, our friendly team will send you a welcome pack, including a form for you to fill out and bring to your first appointment.

Your Orthodontic Consultation

orthodontic assessment

At your first consultation you will be greeted by our Treatment Coordinator and Dr De Angelis who work as a team.

You will be assessed by Dr De Angelis where you can discuss any concerns or issues you might have. He will also undertake a facial examination (don’t worry, it’s completely non evasive!).

orthodontic x-ray OPG

Your first consultation may also include X-rays, scans and photos. The X-rays are a very important diagnostic tool that help us work out how and where the teeth need to move in order to straighten the teeth and if needed, to correct the bite and align the jaw correctly.

Dr De Angelis uses all of this information to tailor a personalised treatment plan just for you and your individual needs. This may include braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign or Spark.

After the initial facial examination, our friendly Treatment Coordinator will go through a detailed treatment plan, including the cost and the expected timeframe. They are there to answer any questions you might have (even beyond the first appointment as we understand there is a lot of information to take in).

Your Orthodontic Treatment with TOC

After your appointment, we will send you a letter with details on your treatment and your photos too.

If you would like to start treatment on the same day we can accomodate this if you let us know before your consultation (so we can schedule your treatment in with our clinical team).

If you choose to go ahead with your personalised treatment, you will see Dr Daniel De Angelis at your appointments but also our professionally qualified Clinicians, and Clinical Assistants. Dr De Angelis and our team work together to deliver your orthodontic care to get the best outcome possible.
