Orthodontist and the team

Your first visit to Orthodontics in Woodland Hills is more than just a meet-and-greet. It’s an opportunity for us to understand your oral health needs, listen to your concerns, and for you to learn about the orthodontic solutions we can offer. This section walks you through what to expect during this comprehensive initial consultation. We aim to make your journey to a perfect smile seamless and comfortable.

Preventive Cleaning

We recommend that you have a preventive cleaning prior to your first visit. Having the cleaning prior to your visit will remove any accumulated plaque or tartar buildup, ensuring that we are able to evaluate your oral health status and visualize all areas of your teeth. During your preventive care visit, the health of your gums will also be evaluated, which is important when considering orthodontic treatment.

An evaluation and preventive cleaning are recommended every six months to prevent cavities and gum disease.


Our orthodontist will conduct a comprehensive oral assessment of your teeth, jaw alignment, and overall oral health. By examining the intricate details of your oral cavity, we are able to develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs and goals.

Digital X-rays

We utilize cutting-edge digital X-ray technology to gain a comprehensive insight into your dental health. This state-of-the-art technology enables us to obtain highly detailed and precise images of your teeth, jaw, and TMJ structure. By utilizing digital X-rays, we can identify potential underlying issues that may impact your care and not be readily visible during a routine evaluation. Our comprehensive approach to your care ensures that we provide you with the highest standard of care.

Oral Cancer Screening

We prioritize conducting an oral cancer screening as part of our unwavering commitment to your overall health and well-being. This painless process involves a thorough examination of your oral cavity, searching for any signs of abnormalities or potential concerns. By proactively screening for oral cancer, we aim to detect any potential issues at their earliest stages, ensuring timely intervention and the best possible outcomes.

What If You Need Treatment

If our orthodontist determines that you could benefit from orthodontic treatment, we’ll discuss your options and recommend the best course of action. Your individualized treatment plan may include traditional braces, clear aligners like Invisalign, or other orthodontic appliances. We’ll explain each step of the process in detail, answering all your questions to ensure you feel confident about your treatment decision.

At Orthodontics in Woodland Hills, we believe everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile. That’s why we work with numerous insurance providers and offer flexible payment plans to fit your budget.
