Will I Get Braces During My First Orthodontist Appointment?

Yes! You will be able to get braces or aligners during your first visit. But before we recommend treatment, we will need to perform an orthodontic evaluation and determine the best treatment for your smile. After a team member has thoroughly reviewed your alignment, they will share their insights about what treatment options can help enhance your smile.  We are proud to offer many treatment options at Lund Orthodontics, including clear, metal braces and aligners — and we will be happy to discuss the benefits of each option for your lifestyle!

What Happens at the First Appointment

During your free consultation, we’ll give you a quick tour of our office, and you’ll meet our orthodontic team. We will examine you and take complimentary photographs and x-rays of your mouth and teeth. A customized treatment plan will then be created to address your specific needs. We encourage you to ask any questions concerning your treatment plan and learn about financing plans and insurance options. 


A proper introduction is instrumental to any great experience. We want to make sure you feel comfortable working with our team, so we will make sure to greet you upon arrival and give you a quick tour of our office. We have three offices near you, including locations in Kirkland, Snohomish, and Lake Stevens.

Paperwork and Relevant History

A member of our team will ask you to fill out paperwork regarding your health history. It will also inform us of the last time you had x-rays, your last relevant consultation, and previous issues you may have experienced. 

Exam and Imaging

During your exam, one of our orthodontic specialists will use advanced 3-D scanning, x-rays, and visual inspection to get a sense of your needs. We use this information to help us strategize your brilliant smile. 

Discovery and Treatment Plan

Next, we will determine potential treatment plans to achieve your new smile. We can decide which plan is best for you based on your budget, predicted results, and treatment length.


Before proceeding with a treatment plan, we want to make sure you have a complete understanding of what to expect. We encourage you to ask questions, and we will be able to address any concerns and chat with you about your options. Bonus: we’ll even prep some helpful materials for you to review at home. 


Our team will review your insurance and discuss payment options that fit your budget. Lund Orthodontics offers flexible financing options and payment plans to help make treatment costs more manageable.
