The First Step to A Beautiful Smile – Your Orthodontic Consultation

On your first visit to our orthodontic office, you'll have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with our friendly staff, our office, and the orthodontic treatment process. For your comfort, disposable toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss are provided for you in our brushing area for use prior to any appointment.

Your initial orthodontic exam with Dr. Bianco will include:

  • A review of your dental and medical history.
  • A complete oral examination, including x-rays if needed.
  • Determination of treatment needs and when it is appropriate to proceed
  • Development of a customized treatment plan and fees.
  • Full explanation of your treatment needs, and answers to any questions you may have.

Our team will assist you in claiming your insurance benefits, and discuss individualized payment plan options.

The Second Step – Your Orthodontic Records Appointment

Your next visit to our orthodontic office will be your records appointment. One of our experienced team members will work with you to gently and skillfully take photos, x-rays and impressions. We use these impressions to make dental models in our "in-house" lab. The models are then mounted on special equipment, to provide more detailed information for your orthodontic treatment. These records will be analyzed by Dr. Bianco and used in future visits.

The Third Step – A Review Of Your Individual Treatment Plan

After your initial orthodontic exam and records appointment, a treatment consultation is scheduled to fully discuss your individual needs, share the information gathered, and answer any questions you may have. Then you're on your way to your new smile!

Scheduling Appointments

During treatment programs, your orthodontic appointments are scheduled approximately every four to eight weeks. Adjustments generally take 20-40 minutes.

Ready to schedule your appointments? Stop by the front desk prior to leaving our office and set up a mutually convenient time. If needed, we can issue work or school appointment cards.

To schedule your dental care appointment by phone, please call us at (604) 941- 0111 or (604) 941-2311 and we will be happy to assist you.

If you're running late for an appointment please call and let us know. Also, please let the staff know if you need to leave the office by a certain time.

Orthodontic Treatment and Your Family Dentist

If you're receiving orthodontic treatment with Dr. Bianco, don't forget that regular six-month check-ups with your family dentist are very important. If you require additional dental care after your teeth cleaning and routine checkup, we are happy to co-ordinate with your family dentist to make sure you are receiving the best care possible.

"Carly's smile has never been brighter! Her teeth turned out perfect! Thanks for all your support along the way, we're so glad we had the work done at your office. Your friendly and professional staff made each visit go smoothly."

- Brenda P.

"The first time I had braces top and bottom. Recently, I decided to have the bottom front straightened again as I really hadn't followed instructions properly, regarding wearing my retainer at the end of treatment. This only took about eight months and now I'm wearing a retainer for about four months.
PS. May I mention I am 84 years old. You are never too old!"

- Eleanor S.

"Everyone is extremely friendly at Dr. Bianco's workplace. Even though I have to wear retainers everyday – I don't mind at all because my retainers have a zebra pattern on it and it looks extremely cool! Thank you for all your help and these memories."
