Your First Visit

At North Coast Orthodontics in Capitola, CA, our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.

Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest orthodontic technology, and offers a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform an oral exam using a 3D digital scan of the teeth and a digital panoramic radiograph to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which orthodontic treatment is right for you. After your consultation, if treatment is indicated and if you decide that you’re ready to start your smile journey, we can often save you a trip and get you started the same day. This initial appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are informed about every step and are as comfortable as possible. We will also provide you with instructions on how to take care of your appliances and your teeth at home.
