First Visit

Welcome to Junction Orthodontics. We are grateful you have considered us for your orthodontic needs. Dr. Jaclyn Scroggins and our friendly team is ready to provide you with a patient-specific, customized treatment plan using the most up-to-date orthodontic technology. We are excited to help you get your teeth on the right track!

What to Expect

Prior to Your First Office Visit

You will receive an e-mail before your scheduled appointment linking you to our registration page. Follow the link to register as a new patient, complete the medical/dental history, view our HIPPA policy and complete the insurance information page as needed. If you do not have access to fill out the forms online, please arrive fifteen minutes before your appointment, so the forms can be completed before your appointment begins. Please do not print out the forms and write in the answers, you will have to re-enter the information in the office.

During Your First Visit

Your first visit will begin with a set of photographs, a panoramic radiograph and a cephalometric radiograph (if needed). After the records are taken and a brief discussion of what brings the patient into our office, our treatment coordinator will present all the information to Dr. Scroggins for a thorough evaluation in order to determine possible courses of treatment. The treatment coordinator will then relay to the patient and family members (if present) the proposed treatment, timelines, office policies and a breakdown of the fees for the treatment recommended. Dr. Scroggins will be available to answer any questions or go over any concerns the patient or family members may have at this time. You can expect this visit to last approximately forty minutes.

While at your first visit, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic needs. We understand that each patient’s orthodontic concerns are different and we promise to give you a personalized treatment plan to address those needs.

What Happens Next?

If Dr. Scroggins determines that the patient is ready to begin an early phase of orthodontics or comprehensive orthodontic treatment, we can discuss the timeline of appointments to move forward and get them scheduled for you. Many times, we are able to complete digital scans and appliance fittings at the first office visit to save you time.

If Dr. Scroggins determines the patient  is not currently ready for treatment, they will be put into our recall program. Our recall program is designed to closely monitor the patient’s growth and development. A timeline for the next examination will be determined and our system will notify you when it is time to return to our office.  There is no charge to be a part of our recall system. Once it is determined that treatment is necessary and charges are discussed, a payment plan can be put in place.
