Your First Visit With Jennings Orthodontics

Welcome to Jennings Orthodontics! We’re excited to help you improve your oral health and achieve the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. The first step in that process is a free consultation with Dr. Jennings in our Louisville or Mt. Washington office. Since this is one of the most important appointments you’ll have with us, you can expect to be greeted warmly and provided with a rewarding and stress-free experience! 

This initial consultation gives us the chance to chat about your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and discuss potential treatment solutions. If you’re unfamiliar with orthodontics, you may be wondering what to expect from your orthodontic evaluation. It’s normal to feel a little nervous, but you can trust our team to help keep things relaxed and friendly! To learn more about your first visit with us, keep reading below. 

Your orthodontic evaluation  

Once you arrive at your chosen location, you will fill out medical and dental history forms before taking digital photographs and X-rays for our diagnostic records. Once these are complete, Dr. Jennings will perform an in-depth but painless examination of your mouth. 

The information that we collect is used to evaluate your current orthodontic situation and diagnose any issues. It’s also part of me developing a customized treatment plan for your specific needs! We want you to feel confident in our expert care and will take time to ensure you understand each step of the process as we go. You can expect to spend about an hour with us for your initial evaluation, which gives us plenty of time to cover important topics like:

  • any orthodontic issues we find
  • what treatment options are available to correct the problem
  • an estimate of how long we expect your treatment to take
  • the total expected cost of treatment
  • any payment or financing options we have available to you

At Jennings Orthodontics, our focus is on transforming your smile and self-confidence through personalized care. We’ll build a treatment plan for you based on your unique smile, your lifestyle, and the goals you hope to achieve. This individualized approach leads to an outstanding orthodontic experience and exceptional results you’ll enjoy for years to come! 

Investing in a healthier smile

Once we’ve decided on a treatment plan together, we’ll walk you through everything it includes. Because every patient has specific needs and will respond to treatment in their way, the total costs will vary from case to case. You never have to worry about hidden fees with our practice, though! We’ll make sure you understand the investment needed for your new smile in detail before we move on to the next step in the process. 

Investing in your orthodontic health has many short- and long-term benefits, and we want everyone to have the orthodontic care they need! That’s why we’re proud to offer a variety of affordable treatments and payment options to fit every budget, including in-office financing solutions. We also accept most Kentucky insurance providers and file your claims on your behalf. 

The next step in your orthodontic journey

Once your consultation is complete, we’ll schedule your first appointment. This is when Dr. Jennings will place your braces or you will receive your first aligner. It will take about an hour, and you’ll have access to our team during this time should you have any additional questions or concerns. We do everything we can to make this appointment as comfortable and relaxed for you as possible!  

Regular follow-up visits are an essential part of the treatment process. Depending on your treatment plan, you’ll see me in the office every 6-10 weeks or so. During these appointments, Dr. Jennings will make sure that everything is progressing as it should be and adjust your appliance if necessary. If you’re wearing braces, she may choose to change the wire at this time as well. 

We try to schedule check-ups for a day and time that are convenient for you, but we know that things sometimes occur that may cause you to run late or miss your appointment. If this happens, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible to reschedule the visit for you. This will help us keep your treatment plan on track!
