Consultation

If you wish to make an appointment for a consultation please contact our office. The orthodontic consultation will take approximately one hour. During this time it is normally necessary to take digital x-rays and photographs and to perform a thorough examination.

The purpose of your consultation is to identify any abnormalities of your teeth or bite or jaws and to inform you of any problems that may arise because of these. You will also be told what treatment would be required to correct these abnormalities and what benefits you might expect to receive from treatment.

If you would benefit from orthodontic treatment a detailed description of the treatment including the type of appliances to be used, the length of the treatment, the number of visits involved and the cost will be outlined to you.

If the patient does not require orthodontic treatment they will be discharged.

If they are too early for treatment they will be given a review appointment for a later date . There is no charge for the review appointments. I welcome the fact that patients often wish to take time to consider matters after their initial consultation

A fixed fee of €80 is payable on the day that you attend for your consultation. This includes the cost of x-rays, photographs, and any other tests that might be required.
