Your First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. All new patients at Hiser Orthodontics begin the orthodontic process with a simple and painless consultation. Dr. Hiser wants to build a relationship and earn trust, because we know it’s a big deal to get braces.

Below are the main things a patient can expect on their first visit:

One-On-One Introduction

Parents and adults want to know who they will see for the next 1-2 years of orthodontic treatment. That’s why we begin the entire process with a conversation. We want each patient and parent to meet Dr. Hiser and our expert staff to first build a relationship so that we can then earn their trust.

Your Voice Is Heard

We want to get to know patients and hear what they have to say. We think that building a relationship and earning trust is one of the most important facets of the patient experience. Patients & parents have a voice here! So, tell us about any concerns or questions you have.

Some of the most common questions we answer include:

  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?


Don’t hear that much from other orthodontists, do you? We want this process to be fun for both adults and children. Going to the orthodontist shouldn’t be a scary thing and we do our best to break down that barrier when we get to know patients.

Brief & Painless X-Ray

Our team will take a complimentary, brief & painless X-ray of the patient’s teeth so that we can look at the structure and placement in detail. This will help us recommend the right treatment plan for the adult or child.
