Braces & Invisalign in Manhattan, NYC
At Goodman Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves a smile they’re truly proud to show off. As a leading orthodontist serving Manhattan, Riverdale, and the greater New York City area, we’re proud to provide patients of all ages with high-quality orthodontic treatment including braces and Invisalign clear aligners. But no matter what orthodontic treatment you and our Manhattan orthodontist choose, it all starts with your first visit to our office.
What to Expect at Your Orthodontic Consultation
Your first visit will begin by meeting one of our receptionists or patient coordinators, who will take some information from you and bring you through the office. Once you’re set up and in our system, it’s time for a thorough diagnostic examination. During the exam, our Manhattan orthodontist, Dr. Adam Goodman, will evaluate your oral and dental needs in order to create your personalized treatment plan. After the exam, we’ll likely take some time to take diagnostic records like X-rays, photos, and impressions for study models, all of which are necessary to develop an appropriate individualized treatment plan. Following that, you and your orthodontist will discuss the best orthodontic treatment options for your needs.
Questions We’ll Address During Your Consultation
At our office, we’re dedicated to providing comprehensive, high-quality care, and we’ll take all the time necessary to answer any questions you have and ensure you fully understand your orthodontic situation and treatment options. However, as a baseline, we’ll make sure to cover all of the following questions during your first appointment:
- Do you have an orthodontic condition that orthodontic treatment can remedy?
- Is treatment needed now, or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will treatment cost?
- What are the available payment options?
Once we have addressed these general questions, we encourage you to ask additional questions you may have. We are always happy to talk more in depth about your orthodontic treatment choices, what to expect at different stages of your orthodontic journey, and anything else you wish to talk about further.
What to Bring to Your First Orthodontic Appointment
In order for your first visit to run as efficiently as possible, we request that you please bring the following information to our Manhattan or Riverdale office with you:
- Any panoramic X-rays taken of your teeth/mouth within the last six months
- Your dental or medical insurance card, if you have one
We believe that good orthodontic care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with one common goal—helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile!
