First Orthodontic Visit

Your First Visit With Our Bridgeport, Shelton & Westport Orthodontists

At Commerce Park Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics, we are always excited about the opportunity to meet new patients and see how our Bridgeport, Shelton & Westport, CT orthodontists can help you or your children achieve the smile of your dreams.

From the first day you enter our orthodontic office, you will be treated with personalized care and attention in a professional and safe environment. From traditional metal braces to Invisalign® or Invisalign Teen®, our practice offers comprehensive care that is designed to fit right into our patients’ personal lifestyles.

During this important visit, you will become acquainted with our office and staff. The visit will consist of an examination and a determination of whether or not this is the right time to begin treatment. If our orthodontists do recommend treatment at this time, we will gather the necessary diagnostic records, which consist of:

  • Study models of your or your children’s teeth, or molds
  • Photographs
  • Digital X-rays

After we evaluate the records, we will provide a complete clinical diagnosis of the orthodontic problem, a written summary of the findings, and a detailed plan that outlines our recommended treatment, goals, and estimated fees.

We also encourage you to ask any questions you might have about the treatment plan, length of treatment, or the costs. We will provide the time to answer any questions you might have at any appointment throughout your treatment as well.

At Commerce Park Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics in Bridgeport, Shelton and Wesport, we use one of the latest technological advances in dentistry: digital radiography (X-rays.) Digital X-rays are much safer for a child because they involve significantly lower radiation exposure compared to conventional X-rays.

Digital technology also allows us to enhance or enlarge the X-ray for better viewing, as well as share it with referring dentists via e-mail.


We ask you to fill out our Orthodontic Registration Form before you come in and bring it with you to your first visit.
