Your First Visit

Dr. Richards and our team want to help you reach your goals with the treatment that is optimal for your smile. During an initial orthodontic exam, our orthodontist will discuss your goals with you and perform a comprehensive exam to determine your eligibility for our various services and find the right solution for your individual needs.

Your first visit to our office is very important in establishing your orthodontic baseline. Your initial exam will include a thorough examination of your teeth, jaws, bite, oral musculature, and any skeletal irregularities. We will also perform a thorough radiographic analysis with panoramic and cephalometric X-rays, as well as a photographic analysis. We want to help you achieve your goals for your smile and look forward to giving you the personalized, high-quality service you deserve.

We are always happy to answer your questions and help you schedule your appointments with Dr. Richards. Contact us today to request your initial orthodontic consultation in Salt Lake City or Riverton, Utah!
