We love meeting new patients and look forward to having you as a part of our orthodontic family. At your first visit to our Washington D.C. office, Dr. Maleki will spend time getting to know you and your goals related to orthodontic treatment. In order to diagnose and plan treatment, diagnostic records including x-rays, dental impressions, and photographs of the face and teeth are taken. These records are only a part of the new patient process. Dr. Maleki believes that orthodontic treatment is a partnership between the doctor and patient, and wants you to understand the diagnosis, treatment options, and the process for orthodontic care. She'll give you a carefully detailed review of all the information related to your orthodontic needs and then take the time to answer any questions or concerns. We encourage active participation in the treatment discussion by patients and parents, so that everyone is comfortable with the treatment decisions.
Because we value your time, we want to make sure that when you leave the initial visit, you have everything you need, including financial information and information regarding any orthodontic insurance coverage. If you are ready to move forward with orthodontic treatment, we can often start the same day immediately after the consultation. Your complimentary consultation includes:
- Digital photographs
- A personalized comprehensive orthodontic evaluation
- A thorough discussion of your orthodontic needs
- A detailed explanation of your treatment options
- A payment plan to fit your budget
