Your First Visit    


Your First Appointment



At your first visit with Dr. Chu, a complimentary panoramic x-ray and a set of photos will be taken. These diagnostics provide the necessary information for Dr. Chu to assess your orthodontic needs and discuss treatment options.

If you decide you would like to pursue treatment, a complete set of diagnostic records will be taken. This typically includes photos of the patient’s face and teeth, panoramic and cephalometric x-rays, and study models. This information is used to develop a customized treatment plan for each individual patient. If necessary, these records may also be taken at intervals during treatment to assist in tracking progress as the teeth and jaws move.


Please note that we can make your visit most informative for you if you come with the following information:

  1. The name of your dentist and any x-rays provided to you (if applicable)
  2. A list of medications you or your child are presently taking
  3. Any dental insurance information


Dental Care

We recommend a visit to your dentist to confirm good oral health before initiating orthodontic treatment. Regular dental visits are also necessary during orthodontic treatment.

Financial Options

Dr. Chu does not want finances to prevent you from pursuing a beautiful smile. The cost of treatment will depend on the severity of the individual problem. At your initial orthodontic consultation we will discuss fees and payment options prior to commencing beginning braces. We offer payment plans to suit many different budgets. This includes a zero interest low down payment in house financing option. With our in house financing options we offer automatic withdrawal for your monthly payments. We also accept most insurance plans and work hard to make orthodontics affordable.

In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down, while maintaining the highest level of professional orthodontic care, we have established these options available to you:

  • If payment is made in full at the start of treatment, we will offer a discount of 7% off of your out of pocket fee. (This excludes orthodontic co-pay insurance plans)
  • To fit your personal needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend payments over the estimated treatment time, with no finance charges.
Visa, MasterCard, Discover

For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
