Consultation visits are usually scheduled in the early morning or lunch time when there is sufficient time to explain the orthodontic problems and proposed treatment. We ask that the patient and both parents be present if possible at this consultation visit.
Our consultations are both informative and educational. Dr. Rust personally meets with you (parents and patient) to explain the issues he found at the initial exam, to discuss his findings after analyzing the orthodontic records, and to present his recommended treatment plan. He will also answer any questions you may have at that time concerning treatment.
The average consultation time is approximately 25-30 minutes. Within a few days of the consultation, the parents, the patient and the referring dentist receive a comprehensive letter that summarizes the consultation visit.
