Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Your initial visit to our office is very important to us. It gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and determine what YOU hope to accomplish with your or your child’s smile. Please allow approximately 1 hour for your first visit to our office. Our treatment coordinator will begin by taking digital photographs of your teeth. During this visit, Dr. Wu will perform an oral examination and answer all your questions. We will discuss the type of treatment needed, when it should start, and the estimated treatment time. We recommend that both parents attend their child’s first visit to our office so that we can make sure you fully understand all aspects of the problems and solutions with an eye toward addressing your desires and your concerns.
If this is the proper time to address the orthodontic problems, we will be ready to initiate the most advanced orthodontic diagnosis in Southern California. Better yet, we can save you a trip by beginning treatment immediately that day as well! We respect that your time is valuable.
While your child is having complete diagnostic records taken, our treatment coordinator will develop with you an affordable payment plan for treatment. She may also help you arrange future appointments that fit your busy schedule..
By the end of your first visit you’ll feel confident that you are in good hands! And hopefully, you will be excited to begin your orthodontic journey at Dr. Stella’s FUNtastic Orthodontics! After your consultation visit, we will schedule your first appointment and Dr. Wu will place your new orthodontic appliance.
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. 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.
