For patients

First visit

At your first visit to our office, Dr. Steiman will perform a complimentary, comprehensive examination of your teeth and bite. Afterwards, there is a lengthy discussion outlining the various treatment options and recommendations. The entire process takes approximately 45 minutes and there is ample time for questions.

If the patient wants to “get the ball rolling”, then a digital scan of the teeth is taken along with some photos and x-rays. Dr. Steiman uses these records to finalize your ideal treatment plan. A start up appointment is booked at the end of your visit.
