You deserve a smile you feel proud to show off in any situation, and at Creekwood Orthodontics, our mission is to help you achieve one. As a leading orthodontic practice serving Liberty, Cameron, and the greater Kansas City, MO area, we're proud to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments ranging from traditional metal braces to exciting alternatives like Invisalign. We work with every patient to individualize treatment, making the process as easy and convenient as possible – and the first step is your initial appointment.

When Should I Visit the Orthodontist?

If you're wondering when you should schedule a consultation with your Kansas City orthodontist, the best answer is the simplest: anytime you're less than satisfied with your smile or have a question about your orthodontic health! We can move healthy teeth at any age and we offer treatment for even minor orthodontic problems, so there's never a bad time to schedule an appointment.

If you have a child and aren't sure when to bring them in for a first appointment, we can help out there, too. In keeping with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that parents bring their children in for an initial appointment when they turn 7. We may not pursue early orthodontic treatment at this age, but evaluating this early lets us spot any problems that may occur down the line and monitor your child's development for the best time to start treatment.

Your First Orthodontic Appointment

Your first appointment will be a chance for us to get to know each other, Dr. Dorsch to perform a thorough orthodontic evaluation, and for us to discuss your potential treatment options. Our evaluation includes a CAT Scan, which allows us to get a detailed look at your orthodontic situation and recommend the best possible treatment for you. During your first visit, we'll take the time to answer any questions you may have and ensure you fully understand the options available to you.

In addition to a detailed conversation with your Kansas City orthodontist, we'll provide you with all of the following at your first appointment to help you better understand your orthodontic situation and treatment options:

  • Complete orthodontic records, including a CAT Scan image via our advanced Carestream Dental CS 9300-C
  • Clinical diagnosis of any orthodontic problems
  • Written summary of our findings and recommendations
  • A detailed plan outlining your proposed treatment
  • List of goals and a good faith estimate of fees
