So to begin, here is what you can expect at your first visit with our friendly team at Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry.

Your initial consultation

Your treatment journey at Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry begins with a free consultation. At this appointment, you will have the opportunity to:

  • meet our team
  • learn more about orthodontics
  • find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.

Our orthodontist, Dr Paul Styrt, will examine your teeth to determine what treatment you require. He’ll present this to you in a bespoke treatment plan which also outlines the duration and cost of treatment. At this appointment, if x-rays are required, our team will organise this for you.

Your fitting appointment

After your consultation, you're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted. With a treatment plan in place, it’s now time to schedule your first appointment. This is your fitting appointment when Dr Styrt fits your new appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling appointments

Once your appliance is fitted, your treatment journey has begun. You’ll need to come in and see us every four to eight weeks so we can ensure your teeth are straightening as they should be!
