Your First Visit

When you visit our orthodontist office in Oakland, you’ll see that providing exceptional orthodontic care in a family-friendly environment is our top priority.

Your first visit to Loeb Orthodontics won’t cost you a thing. We want you to feel comfortable with your decision to start treatment with us.

What does my first visit include?

Your first visit includes:

Before you visit us for your consultation, you can fill out your new patient forms online for a quick check-in process.

On your first visit, our goal is to show you around, introduce you to your team, examine your smile, explore your treatment options, and create a personalized treatment plan.

What to Expect On Your First Visit

Step 1: Meet your team → 

First, you’ll be greeted with a smile from our friendly team. (You can expect this at every visit.)

Our treatment coordinator will give you a tour of the office and get to know a little bit about you. Next, we’ll begin your orthodontic exam.

Step 2: Get digital x-rays & photos → 

Using the advanced iTero® Element digital scanner, we’ll take a quick video to generate 3-D models of your teeth and bite. (None of that weird goopy putty necessary.)

The iTero device produces an easy, comfortable digital scan for your orthodontist to assess your smile, but it can also create a simulated preview of your treatment results. You may get a sneak peek of your beautiful new smile before you even begin treatment.

We may also recommend taking one or two low-radiation digital x-rays for an accurate image of what we can’t see when we look in the mouth. Dr. Loeb will use diagnostic photos, digital models and x-rays to create your personalized treatment plan.

Step 3: Meet your orthodontist → 

We’ll head over to our consultation room where you’ll meet your orthodontist. Dr. Loeb will perform an in-person detailed exam of your teeth and bite. 

Dr. Loeb will discuss all findings with you, present you with our treatment options, and discuss what you can expect throughout your orthodontic journey. 

We’ll answer all of your questions and tell you everything you need to know about your upcoming transformation with braces or Invisalign® or other orthodontic treatments.

Step 4: Pick an affordable payment plan → 

While Dr. Loeb is creating your very own individualized treatment plan, our treatment coordinator will sit down with you and work out a financial plan to cover the cost of your orthodontic treatment, such as braces or Invisalign®

We’ll discuss your needs, calculate your insurance benefit, and create a flexible payment plan that meets your needs. 

Step 5: Prepare for a life-changing smile → 

Get ready to smile. We’re so excited for you to experience the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Prepare to put your best foot forward in life!
