Your First Visit


First Visit

Your Huntington Beach, CA Orthodontist

At Harner Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality in orthodontic care while maintaining a fun, friendly office environment. Dr. Harner and our highly trained team of orthodontic specialists work hard to get to know every patient individually, crafting specialized treatment plans that perfectly fit their orthodontic needs. We strive to make you feel at home every time you come into our office - even during your very first visit.

We're always excited to meet new patients at their first visit! During this appointment, we'll take any necessary measurements like x-rays, photos, or impressions and conduct a thorough orthodontic exam. We'll use this data to craft a personalized treatment recommendation for how to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile as quickly, safely, and effectively as possible. During your first exam, we'll go over some basic questions you might have, such as:

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can treat?
  • Is now the right time for treatment?
  • What procedures are best suited to the problem?
  • Do permanent teeth need to be pulled?
  • How long will treatment last?
  • What will treatment cost?
  • What financing options do I have?

While we can generally answer these and other general questions at your initial exam, we'll schedule follow-up consultation to discuss more specific questions. During this follow-up, we'll outline our treatment recommendation in detail, taking the time to ensure you understand every aspect of your treatment plan and answering any other questions you have.

We know your time is valuable, so to expedite your initial exam, we ask that you please provide us with any panoramic x-rays taken within the last 6 months. If you have dental or orthodontic insurance, please also bring your insurance card - this will help us estimate the cost of your treatment.
