What To Expect

If you’ve never received orthodontic care before and have only heard about it from others—or if you have had orthodontic care in the past—let us assure you that many of the procedures have greatly advanced in both technique and in materials.

Initial consultation

When you come in for your initial consultation, you will meet with one of our doctors and team members. We’ll ask you to fill out some paperwork, review your dental and medical history and then you will have a complete oral exam, which will include photographs of your teeth and profile. The information we gather from that exam will help us decide on the best customized treatment for you. Be assured that you’ll be a part of the process every step of the way, and we are happy to answer all of your questions about orthodontic care and the financial considerations involved with that care.

First appointment and future scheduling

Now, you’ll be scheduled for your first appointment, which will last about one hour. You’ll have your orthodontic appliance installed, as was discussed during your consultation visit, and give you instructions on how to take care of it.

You’ll be scheduled for future visits every four to eight weeks for checkups and adjustments. Our scheduling coordinators will ask what days and times are most convenient for you when making future appointments.

Regular dental visits

Continue to visit your family dentist twice a year, because they’ll continue to clean your teeth and provide you with regular dental care.

Excellence In Service

I have 4 children who are patients of King Orthodontics and we always look forward to our visits. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff is kind, & courteous. To top it off, we have never had to wait more than 10 minutes or so! Dr. King... and Dr. Bryan, are kind and knowledgeable and easily accessible too. I can’t say enough about this practice!

I just wanted to take a minute to write and let you know what a wonderful addition Dr. Babb is to your office. I was in twice this week and saw Dr. Babb on Monday for the first time. She is absolutely wonderful - just so nice and she really seems to be invested in her patients. The entire staff at Wexford office is wonderful and Dr. Babb is just icing on the cake.

I absolutely love King Orthodontics!! The staff are so friendly and actually care about you and your teeth. Almost everyone who works there knows you by name which is very uncommon for a place with so many patients. It is so worth the hour drive it takes me to get there. I would highly recommend King Orthodontics to anyone!!!!!
