Initial consultation / First visit

We look forward to meeting you at Blossom Kare Orthodontics!

It’s nothing to be nervous about, a visit to the orthodontist is the first step in achieving a perfect smile! Your first visit will be easy and consist of an exam and a conversation about the treatment options that are available to you or your child. It presents the perfect opportunity to get to know Dr. Bao and our incredible team.

As a patient-focused office, we understand that each patient is different and that everybody has unique needs and expectations. This is why Dr. Bao is dedicated to providing you with individualized treatment options tailored exactly to your specific needs and concerns. This initial visit is also the perfect opportunity for patients to ask questions and open the channels of communication. We firmly believe that better communication leads to better, more satisfying results.


What Should You Expect?

  • Have photos and radiographs taken of your teeth

  • A thorough examination by Dr. Bao to answer several questions:

    • Is orthodontic treatment necessary?

    • When should treatment be initiated?

    • How long is treatment going to take?

    • What will treatment cost (including reviewing insurance information and payment options)?

    • What comes next?

  • A presentation and detailed description of the issues or problems faced by the patient, and detailed explanations of the available options for treatment

  • The initial exam typically takes about half an hour, and there is no charge!

If you are able, completing these PRIOR to your first visit will help immensely:


  • Have your dentist print and fill out the Referral Form, complete the New Patient Form and bring it with you on your first visit.

  • Provide us with your information regarding orthodontic insurance. The earlier we have the information the easier it is to narrow down your specific coverage and fill you in on your insurance benefits the day of your initial exam.

  • If you have any x-rays, models, or other dental records please bring them with you.

  • Jot down questions you have for the doctor as you think of them.

  • If at all possible, have both parents attend the initial consultation for child patients.

We can’t wait for you to be a part of the Blossom Kare Orthodontics Family!
