Your first visit


What to expect

Upon your arrival at Garrett & Boyd Orthodontics, please notify our receptionist. We can’t wait to welcome you to our office. Dr. Perez-Cisneros or Dr. Boyd will conduct a thorough clinical orthodontic examination and explain all aspects of treatment. Please ensure you have completed the new patient forms prior to your first appointment.

What’s next?

If orthodontic treatment is indicated at this time, we will schedule an appointment for diagnostic records. If time allows, we can take diagnostic records at your initial visit. If you are a candidate for clear aligners, we will use our iTero® Digital Scanner to capture a 3D digital impression of your teeth and mouth – no more goopy impressions!

What are diagnostic records?

  • Study models of your teeth.

  • Panoramic and cephalogram radiographs and tracings.

  • Doctors study the diagnostic records to determine the best course of treatment.

  • Intraoral exam / airway assessment

Office hours

Our office hours are Monday – Thursday, 8 am – 5 pm. It is our goal to see you on time for your appointment. We schedule enough time in your appointment to complete any necessary procedure, give information about the treatment, and answer any questions. To maintain a schedule that runs in a timely manner, we request that patients arrive on time to avoid delays as the day progresses.

Our office and the patients that are seen after your appointment greatly appreciate your cooperation and consideration with appointments.
