On your first visit to the office, there will be paperwork involved. At Papasikos Orthodontics an orthodontist near Verona, NJ we have new patient forms that are available to patients even before the appointment so they can fill them out at home online.

*Note: If you or your child is under the age of 18 you will (they) will need to be accompanied by a part or legal guardian.

When you arrive a team member will greet you and help you become acquainted with the office. The team member will then start the process by taking pictures as well as x-rays which allow the doctor to get a more detailed view of your teeth.

Once all the pictures and x-rays have been taken, the one of our doctors will sit down with you and ask you to discuss your issues and problems in addition to telling you what problems they noticed while examining your mouth as well as from the x-rays and pictures. Based on the specific issues that you have, on of our orthodontists will be able to suggest various treatment options for you based on what would be most beneficial for you. Depending on your needs, you may be able to start treatment that day off if this appointment is for a child, you might be asked to postpone treatment until the jaw structure has reached a point that orthodontic care is recommended.
