Begin Your Smile Transformation at Our Practice

At Royal Oak Orthodontic Care, we know choosing the right orthodontist is important. That’s why we offer free consultations. We want you to feel confident before committing to treatment. When you meet with our expert team, you will get to know us better, identify the right solution for your orthodontic needs, and determine the costs and your payment options. We’ll use advanced technology to plan your treatment and even show you what your results will look like.

If you have a young child, we suggest bringing them to see our orthodontists by age 7 or so. We’ll evaluate their smile and recommend preventive treatment if appropriate. Using appliances at an early age can often lessen the need for future treatment.

Here’s what you can expect during your first orthodontic appointment:

  • Your orthodontist will discuss your goals and concerns regarding your smile.
  • We’ll thoroughly examine your teeth, jaw alignment, and bite function.
  • We may take digital scans, intraoral photos, and digital X-rays to fully assess your unique orthodontic needs.
  • You will find out which treatment is ideal for you, whether you need traditional metal braces, Invisalign, or ceramic braces.
  • We’ll show you a preview of the results, so you can feel good about moving forward.
  • We’ll answer any questions you may have. You’ll also find out the costs of treatment and your payment options.
