New Orthodontic Patient Information – Palm Harbor, FL

Start Your Journey with Us

Choosing to start orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child is a big decision, and Dr. Johnson and his team are ready to make it the best one you’ve ever made. We’re always excited to welcome a new patient into our office and show them what is possible for their smile. On the page below, you’ll find everything you need to know ahead of your first appointment so you can come in feeling nice and prepared.

Your First Visit

Whether Dr. Johnson will be improving you or your child’s smile, the initial appointment will follow the same basic steps. Dr. Johnson will perform an exam, share his observations with you, and then recommend whether or not orthodontic treatment is needed. Sometimes, it isn’t necessary or should be started at a later date! If treatment can begin right away, he’ll go over your options so you can choose the right one for you or your child.
