First Visit

A referral from your general family dentist is NOT required to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Osborn!

Your first exam is complimentary as a courtesy to you! Dr. Osborn performs a complete orthodontic exam and will discuss your initial diagnosis and answer questions about treatment options, when to start treatment, treatment time and fees. A health history form is available to complete online here. If you prefer, a paper form can be mailed to you in advance of your appointment or you may download it from here. Please bring this completed form to your appointment.

A complimentary screening x-ray may be taken if a recent one has not been sent by your dentist to aid in diagnosis. Our treatment coordinator will be able to discuss financial options. It will be helpful to bring your dental insurance information. This visit will take 30 to 40 minutes.

When you decide to proceed with orthodontic treatment the next step will be taking diagnostic records. Additional x-rays, study models and photographs are all used to complete the orthodontic diagnosis and treatment plan. As a convenience to you, we can reserve time following your exam for this 45-minute appointment.
