First Visit


Here at the office of Cook Orthodontics, P.C. in Evansville, IN, we are always delighted to meet new patients and figure out together how our team can assist them achieve a beautiful, straight smile. As soon as you walk through our doors, you will be given the personalized care and attention you deserve in a safe and inviting environment. With a variety of braces and other treatment options like Invisalign®, our Evansville orthodontist Dr. Devon R. Cook offers comprehensive care that will fit your unique personality and lifestyle.

What to Expect at Your First Evansville Orthodontic Visit

A thorough examination will be conducted during your initial visit with us, as well as a discussion of potential treatment options. Dr. Cook will be able to determine the appropriate care needed during your first visit and whether the time is right for you to begin treatment. Everyone’s orthodontic needs are different, and it is possible that you may not require orthodontic care immediately.

For some of our younger first-time visitors, Dr. Cook might suggest that we wait until their mouth and teeth develop a bit more before performing any orthodontic treatment. That way, we can begin treatment at the most optimal time, ensuring the most effective and long-lasting results. If Dr. Cook determines that orthodontic care is needed, we will take diagnostic records and determine a personal treatment plan. We will also cover the length of treatment and estimated costs at this time.

What's Next

Once we have prepared your personal treatment plan, we will arrange the appropriate appointments to begin your orthodontic care. We know that communication is a big part of the success of orthodontic treatment, and we encourage you to ask any other questions that you might have about the treatment plan, length of treatment or the costs, at this time. We will also provide the time to answer your questions at any appointment throughout treatment.

We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we give patients the opportunity to start treatment the same day as their first visit. This allows you the convenience to combine what normally would be several separate appointments. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Evansville orthodontic office and one of our friendly staff members will be happy to assist you. We look forward to meeting you and seeing you smile!

If you haven't already provided us with your orthodontic insurance information, please bring your insurance card with you to your first visit. By providing this information, we will be able to give you an accurate breakdown of your costs.

Also please bring your completed medical and dental history form that you will receive in the mail in your new patient welcome packet or you can download it here.

This allows you the convenience to combine what used to be several separate appointments. If treatment is indicated, we have reserved time to take impressions to fabricate diagnostic models of the teeth and to place separators/spacers to put the braces on a week later.
