New Patient

Where beautiful smiles begin.

What to expect during your first visit

During your initial orthodontic exam, Dr. Heidi Starnes will get to know you, your smile concerns, and what you want to achieve with your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Starnes will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and jaws, take digital scans, and perform other necessary diagnostic tests to provide you with an accurate treatment plan.

At Starnes Orthodontics, we believe it’s of the utmost importance to analyze each patient’s specific needs in-depth because dedicated treatment planning leads to optimal results and higher patient satisfaction. After Dr. Starnes has analyzed your diagnostic records, we will discuss your treatment options, duration, costs, and payment plans.

Making top quality orthodontic care affordable.

We understand that quality orthodontic care can be costly, so we provide interest-free, flexible payment plans to suit your family's budget. We would love to discuss this with you in greater detail during your first visit.

Our friendly team can also help you determine if your insurance has orthodontic coverage. We can also file your claim and process paperwork for you once treatment begins.

Early Orthodontic Treatment: Setting the Foundation for a Lifetime of Beautiful Smiles

The foundation of a healthy, attractive smile begins early in life. At Starnes Orthodontics, we follow the American Association of Orthodontists' recommendation for children to receive their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. This early assessment allows our team to detect alignment issues and intervene at the optimal time to ensure better long-term outcomes.

Why is early treatment so important? By addressing orthodontic concerns in a child's developing mouth, we can help guide proper growth and development, making future treatments less complicated and more successful. So, when it comes to your child's smile, remember - the earlier, the better!
