You will immediately be greeted by our friendly treatment coordinator who will give you a form to fill in, that you can download: health form for children(61Ko), health form for adult. Some photographs might be taken.
In the peaceful environment of our new patient room, you will watch a short video on what is going to happen on this first appointment.
Dr Alexandrian will then come to:
- Listen to the purpose of your visit and expectations,
- Perform a clinical and facial examination on the chair
- Determine need for treatment
- Tell you when is the best time to start, what type of treatment is recommended and what options are available
- Give you an overview on possible treatment modalities.
There is never any pressure to start. You are free to take our information home and decide whenever you are ready. Questions are always encouraged as well as second opinions. We are here to advice you, so any question is welcome!
If you do decide to start, your next visit will involve:
- Taking records (impressions of your teeth, X-rays)
- Explanation of treatment plan proposed by Dr Alexandrian (after studying diagnostic records) and presentation of payment plan and terms of payment.
At this stage you are still free to start or not your treatment. X-rays and prints belong to you and you can get them back any time on a flashdrive.
Whenever possible, we try to make things easy for you by grouping appointments.
Once treatment started, we shall see you at regular intervals of 8 to 12 weeks.
For treatment with braces, a longer appointment (1 to 2 hours) is necessary at beginning and end of treatment.

after being finished. It involves all visits and necessary appliances to obtain this result and your satisfaction.
