What to Expect During Your First Visit

Family Friendly Environment

During your first visit, you will meet with our friendly staff, take a tour of our beautifully updated orthodontic practice and have a chance to relax in our comfortable reception area.

High-Tech Assessment

Each complimentary consultation includes photos and an x-ray so that Dr. Lawless can accurately assess all aspects of your smile including your teeth and jaw structure.

Knowledgeable Team Members

Dr. Lawless and his team meet with every new patient to review their diagnostic records, perform an exam, and talk with you about the best course of action to achieve your confident smile.

We are all in this together!

Your Safety Is Our Top Priority

  • Your safety and the safety of our staff is our top priority. We have policies in place for the safety of everyone.
  • Just as before, we ask that all patients brush, rinse, and floss prior to your appointment. In addition, our assistants will give each patient a toothbrush with toothpaste already on it, and only one patient will be allowed at the brushing station at a time. The patient will wipe the area before and after they finish brushing.
  • All staff will wear a mask in our offices. We ask that you wear a mask, too. A face covering of any kind is appreciated (bandana or scarf.)
  • We will meet you at the front door to check you or your child in. We will take the patient’s temperature and ask you to complete a health form. Our lobby has social distancing rules in place, meaning lobby chairs are spaced six feet apart. If all of the chairs are full, we ask that the parent or patient wait outside until there is an open spot or it is time for your appointment.

Patient Forms

We’ve gone digital! Once you schedule your consultation, one of our friendly team members will send you a link to the online forms. Completing these online forms will save you time during your first appointment.

New patients will receive a tour of our state-of-the-art practice and meet the team to put everyone at ease during their first appointment. If you have any questions about the first visit or about orthodontics in general, don’t hesitate to ask!

Virtual Appointments

If you are scheduled for a Virtual Appointment, please check your email before your appointment time.

This is the link https://lawlessortho.doxy.me/lawlessortho that will connect you to your virtual assistant. If you do not receive an email from us before your appointment, please call our office and we will re-send it. A family member should join virtual appointments to help get the best views possible. We will update treatment progress and provide an opportunity for an in-office visit while on the call.
