Initial ExamThe first appointment with Kemp & Rice Orthodontics will be a clinical examination to determine any orthodontic needs you may have. A current panorex x-ray for Dr. Kemp or Dr. Rice to view during this appointment will be very helpful. If you have not had a panorex taken in the last year it may be necessary to take on at the time of the appointment, so Dr. Kemp or Dr. Rice can make accurate treatment recommendations. The cost of the panorex is $100.00. Usually the appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan can be developed at this first visit. The exact treatment procedures needed as well as the financial arrangements will be discussed. Every attempt will be made in our office to make the best use of your time by developing as much of the treatment plan at the first visit.
Sometimes an exact recommendation cannot be made until further diagnostic information is gathered. In this case appointments for both diagnostic records and a consultation will be scheduled.
