Patient Information

Your first appointment

When you first visit the Colchester Orthodontic Centre, we will sit down with you to discuss what you would like to achieve from orthodontic treatment. We have this initial discussion with all our patients so we can gain a thorough understanding of individual requirements. We then examine your teeth and recommend the best course of treatment for you – this is your orthodontic assessment.

Orthodontic assessment

Various elements are taken into consideration when planning your new smile. During your first visit, we will take measurements of your teeth and facial features, perform diagnostic digital x-rays and take photographs. Our specialist orthodontist, Mr Gareth Davies, will then look at these so he can recommend the best course of treatment. He uses the information gathered to create a detailed, bespoke treatment plan.

Mr Davies will discuss your treatment in detail, explain all your options and show you the most appropriate braces for your orthodontic problem. During your assessment, please feel free to ask any questions as this first appointment is designed to provide you with all the information you need to make a decision about whether or not you’d like to proceed with treatment.

Our Treatment Coordinator will guide you through the treatment options recommended by Mr Davies and cover other details such as the cost and Payment Plan options. You will leave the practice armed with all the information you need to make a decision, including details about payment options and your bespoke treatment plan.

Specialist care

We are truly proud to be able to offer our patients access to first-class technology and advanced treatment techniques. In addition, we provide a bespoke treatment plan, formulated by Mr Davies, which sets out how we will deliver the smile you’ve always wanted. The decision as to whether you’d like to proceed with treatment is yours.

From your very first contact with our specialist practice to the creation of your new smile, our Treatment Coordinator will be available to offer support at every stage of your orthodontic journey.
