First Appointment

Assessment of your teeth, your bite, your growth and your goals.

We aim to fit around your schedule.  We are opened on Saturdays in our Bayside practice.


After you’ve made an appointment with us, look out for a Welcome Pack in the mail. Please fill out the included forms.


Come to your appointment. Say hi to Kelli, Maree or Tara at Reception, they will take your paperwork and prepare a file for you. Feel free to browse our Smile Book, showcasing some of the most common orthodontic problems and our treatment plans and results.


You’ll be greeted by one of our very friendly nurses for some teeth and smiling photos, and sometimes a scan of your teeth. You’ll then get to meet your orthodontists (They often work in collaboration to give you the best treatment plan possible!).


Your orthodontist will discuss with you:

  • Your teeth alignment, bite relationship, and possible areas that requires correction

  • Your xray and scan results

  • One or more treatment plans tailored to you (complex treatment cases may require additional time to plan).

  • Duration of treatment and expected outcomes.


You’ll get the chance to see our braces, appliances and Invisalign working in person. Get the feel of the practice and see if you feel at home with us.  Ask questions and get an all-inclusive quotation.


 If you wish to begin treatment with us, we can often start your treatment on the same day!
