Your First Visit

We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we would love for you to give our office an opportunity to wow you with a uniquely wonderful orthodontic experience! The Howell Orthodontics team will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

We now offer VIRTUAL initial consultations!

For our new patients, we are happy to now provide virtual consultations with Dr. Howell!   Being able to join the appointment from any location has enhanced the exceptional service we strive to provide our patients. Our Treatment Coordinator, Ruth, prepares in advance for your virtual appointment by contacting your dentist and by sending you a simple 3-step email.  Furthermore, Ruth is available to you 24/7 via email prior to the appointment for guidance, questions, or concerns.  Our patients and families have been pleasantly surprised at how thorough and convenient the overall process is. Once you have completed your first appointment, please know that there is no obligation to start treatment.  We understand that this is a big decision, and we want you to be confident and feel comfortable before beginning any treatment with us.

Please contact Ruth (ruth@howellortho.com) to schedule your initial consultation.

What happens after the initial consultation?

You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted!  After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment for Dr. Howell to start your orthodontic treatment. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting the orthodontist about every six to twelve weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens!”  If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist at least once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups.  If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
