First Visit

Initial Exam

We will begin with a preliminary evaluation of the orthodontic problem and will provide an opportunity to answer any questions.

Orthodontic Records

Should treatment be recommended, we will take digital records, including photos and X-rays. Our staff will also make dental models.


Once Dr. Snyder has analyzed the records, a computerized presentation will follow in order to explain the orthodontic problems, treatment goals and treatment options. The basic purpose of this consultation is to maximize communication between doctor and patients to ensure that the objectives, limitations and specifics of the treatment plan are made clear.

Second Opinions

We would be honored to treat you and your family at our office; however, we realize that there are times when you want to seek a second opinion. Dr. Snyder has created a list of questions for you to consider when comparing offices. Click here to view these questions.
