Take Your First Step Toward a Beautiful Smile

We make every visit to Bates Family Orthodontics count...
especially your first one!

We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and your Bates team will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible.

What to Expect

We look forward to meeting you and your family, and we're glad that you've considered us for your treatment.

The goal of your first consultation will be to help us learn about your treatment goals and to allow us to thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and jaws. This consultation appointment typically takes one hour and will be totally free!

Here is what to expect during your first visit:


1. A Friendly Welcome

As soon as you walk in, our amazing team will be ready to greet you and start your journey towards that dream smile.

To get a head start, be sure to complete the new patient forms that you'll receive electronically, one week before your appointment.


2. Easy & Comfortable Records

Our team will take X-rays, photos, and a digital scan of your teeth. This allows Dr. Bates to better evaluate your specific presentation and come up with a proper diagnosis and treatment plan specifically for you!


3. Meet the Doctor

Dr. Bates will thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, and jaws. Then, he'll discuss your X-rays, photos, his diagnosis, and present treatment options best suited for your specific needs. You'll be able to ask him any questions you have.


4. Review Costs & Insurance

Our team will review your insurance information, options and costs of treatment, and help you determine a payment plan that best fits your budget.
