Whether you come to us via a referral from your dentist or you book an appointment direct, we welcome new patients here at Heaton Mersey Orthodontic Centre.
The first step is for you to come in for an initial consultation. During this appointment, we’ll take the time to find out as much about you as possible; this means we’ll take a detailed medical and oral health history, talk to you about how you feel about your teeth, and carry out a comprehensive examination. There’ll be no pressure or hurry, and plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions.
At this point, we will explain your choice of potential treatment options based on factors such as the speed, cost, visibility and desired outcome. You’ll be given a treatment plan to review before you make a final decision about your treatment.
Once your treatment plan is agreed, we will then book your initial treatment appointment at our orthodontist in Manchester. What happens during this appointment will depend on the brace or aligner system you have chosen.
