What to Expect

We pride ourselves on our patients’ comfort. Dr. Gutiérrez’s staff can help you with questions about your treatment, insurance, and procedures. Here’s what you should expect as a patient:

Complimentary Initial Consultation

Your initial consultation will be the time when you’ll get to meet the staff and Dr. Gutiérrez. We’ll ask you to fill out some paperwork, then we’ll talk about your dental and medical histories.

Oral Exam and X-Rays

If you decide to use our office for your orthodontic needs, we’ll set up your next appointment. We will provide an oral exam and take some X-rays of your mouth, jawbone, and skull so that Dr. Gutiérrez can determine your treatment plan.

Appliance Installation

At your next appointment, which usually is scheduled about 4 to 6 weeks after your exam, you will have your appliance installed and received instructions on its care.

Follow-up Visits

Depending on the kind of treatment you’re using, you will return to our office about every 4 to 8 weeks for adjustments.
