Starting Your Smile
Giving you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted is our greatest goal. It all starts with your first visit.
Alba Orthodontics in Mechanicsburg will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient, and rewarding as possible.
Easy and Painless
The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Alba Orthodontics will be completely painless.
Every smile starts with a free consultation where you will have the opportunity to meet our team, as well as, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.
During your free consultation Dr. Alba will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms.
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary.
- Determine if treatment is indicated at this time or if we should continue to observe your child as they develop.
- Help you create a customized treatment plan.
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans.
Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.
Creating Your Custom Treatment Plan
After reviewing your records, Drs. Alba will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan.
Drs. Alba will point out specific areas of concern and show you what kind of corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.
Drs. Alba will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you.
Drs. Alba and his assistant will then walk you through the process.
We’ll explain everything—from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.
We’ll give you all the information you’ll need to know about your orthodontic treatment so that you can choose what's best for you—no strings attached.
If we determine you need treatment, and you decide to proceed, we will schedule the visits necessary for Drs. Alba to get you started on your way toward your new smile!
If we feel it is best to continue to observe we will set up a visit for re-evaluation.
Start Your Treatment the Same Day
The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits. We value the relationship that we’ll build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you’re receiving the best orthodontic care possible.
Once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns, you can start your treatment that same day. We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit.
