What to Expect on Your First Visit | Graf Orthodontics


First Visit

We can’t wait to see you! When you visit us, you’ll see that we genuinely care about our patients.
Providing top-of-the-line orthodontic treatment with advanced technologies in a fun and welcoming environment is what we’re all about.

Your First Visit

What does my free first visit include?

Your first visit to us won’t cost you a thing. We want you to feel comfortable with your decision to start treatment with us.

Your first visit includes:

Comprehensive orthodontic exam, including digital x-rays, photos and digital scans with the iTero® Element intraoral scanner

One-on-one consultation with one of our 5-star orthodontists, Dr. Graf, Dr. Cloud or Dr. Digney

Cost and insurance review to create a custom payment plan that suits your budget

Before you visit us for your consultation, you can fill out your new patient forms online for an easy check-in process.

When you visit us, our goal is to show you around, introduce you to your team, examine your smile, explore your treatment options, and create a personalized treatment plan that results in a selfie-ready smile.

Can I start treatment during my first visit?

You sure can! We’re proud to offer same day braces for patients who want to start their transformation right away.

If you tell us that you’re interested in same day braces, we’ll reserve time to start your treatment on the same day as your consultation. You can leave our office with braces on your teeth, or your Spark™ clear aligner scan complete.

How to do it:

  1. Request your complimentary consultation at one of our offices.
  2. When we reach out to you to schedule your appointment, let us know that you’re interested in a Same Day Start.
  3. Show up and get started! It’s that simple.

What to Expect

Step 1: Meet your team

First, you’ll be greeted with a smile from our friendly team. (You can expect this at every visit!)

Our new patient coordinator will give you a tour of the office and get to know a little bit about you. Next, we’ll begin your orthodontic exam.

Step 2: Get digital x-rays, scans & photos

We’ll take digital x-rays with our low-radiation digital x-ray machine.


Your orthodontist will use these diagnostic photos and x-rays to create your personalized treatment plan.

Step 3: Meet your orthodontist

We’ll head over to our consultation room where you’ll meet one of our orthodontists! Dr. Graf, Dr. Cloud or Dr. Digney will perform an in-person detailed exam of your teeth and bite.
Your orthodontist will discuss all findings with you, present you with our treatment options, and discuss what you can expect throughout your orthodontic journey.

We’ll answer all of your questions and tell you everything you need to know about your upcoming transformation with braces or Spark clear aligners.

Step 4: Pick an affordable payment plan

While your orthodontist is creating your very own individualized treatment plan, our new patient coordinator will sit down with you and work out a financial plan to cover the cost of braces or clear aligners.

We’ll discuss your needs, calculate your insurance benefit, and develop a payment plan.

Step 5: Prepare for a life-changing smile

Get ready to smile! If you choose a Same Day Start, we can place your braces or begin the clear aligner transformation process on your very first visit.

Smile With Confidence.
