Your first appointment with Hawaii Smile Designs is a thrilling time! It’s the perfect chance to meet our team and learn about all the beneficial orthodontic treatment we offer in Kihei, Lahaina, Lihue and Hilo, Hawaii.
During your initial appointment, you should expect to spend about an hour in our office. This allows plenty of time for records, examination, treatment and financial discussion without having to rush. This also gives you plenty of opportunities to ask any questions you may have about your orthodontic treatment recommendations.
You will meet with one of our patient coordinators, who will gather information from you and then bring you back for orthodontic records of your month, which includes a series of photos and an X-ray. These records allow Dr. Miyai to evaluate the gums, bones, joints and any teeth not above the gumline. Dr Miyai will do a full examination of the mouth. If orthodontic treatment can benefit you, Dr. Miyai and our treatment coordinator will discuss your treatment options with you. Together, you will decide which orthodontic treatment is best for you and your smile. If treatment is not recommended at this time, he will encourage you to come into Hawaii Smile Designs periodically to monitor the growth and progress of your teeth and gums. If you are beginning your orthodontic journey with us, we will schedule your next appointment at your convenience and plan on working toward your perfect smile!
