Our objective is to make sure each of your visits is pleasant and informative. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough orthodontic clinical examination.  If appropriate, Dr. Guess will recommend special x-rays, photographs and study casts.  This will allow him to develop a customized treatment plan.  At the initial appointment, each of us will do our very best to make sure you are seen on time, answer all of your questions and concerns, present treatment that we would recommend to our own families, and be flexible in our financial arrangements.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

Completed patient registration forms and any information or x-rays your dentist may have given you.

If you have medical or dental insurance, please the necessary completed forms or card to the appointment. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

If for some reason you cannot make it to your appointment, please contact our office at (916) 933-0123.  By doing so you allow another patient to utilize that time as well as reschedule your appointment. If it is after hours please leave your name, patient’s name and phone number and a brief message on our answering machine and we will return your call in the morning.  Please remember to speak slowly.
