Orthodontics Visalia

Easy & Painless

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Murray & Olson Orthodontics will be completely painless. 

During your first free consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Your Custom Treatment Plan

After reviewing your records, Dr. Murray or Dr. Olson will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan.

Your doctor 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.

We will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Murray or Dr. Olson will then walk you through the process.

They’ll explain everything—from scheduling and expected discomfort levels to finances and payment options.

Taking the Next Step

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, we will schedule your first appointment and your doctor will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling Your Appointments

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that things come up! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our office and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.

Visiting the Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment.

If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
