Your First Visit

What to Expect

Reception Area of Vancouver Orthodontic Specialists, PLLC

Your first visit to Vancouver Orthodontic Specialists gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and to better understand your orthodontic needs.

When you first arrive at our office, you will be greeted by one of our friendly team members who will assist you with checking in. If you have filled out forms prior to your visit and brought them with you, we will accept them at this time; if not, you will be given the forms to complete in the reception area.

Dr Durk Irwin Giving Patient Orthodontic Exam

From there, you will be walked back to the treatment area where you will be given a preliminary and comprehensive orthodontic examination.

If it is determined that orthodontic treatment is needed, we will then discuss your treatment options and advise you as to when treatment should begin.

We will go over all fees, insurance, and payment options with you in detail, and we will answer any questions you may have regarding the proposed orthodontic treatment process. Diagnostic records can usually be taken on the same day of your initial consultation, but can also be arranged for a later date according to your schedule.
