First Visit

Visiting Stormberg Orthodontics in La Mesa, CA

Stormberg Orthodontics proudly provides personalized orthodontic care to patients of all ages living in San Diego County. We use the latest available orthodontic technology from diagnostics to treatment to ensure each patient receives the best treatment possible and the orthodontic care they deserve.

What To Expect at Your First Orthodontic Appointment

We are always excited to welcome new patients to Stormberg Orthodontics! You can expect to spend approximately 45 minutes with us during your first visit. During the time you spend in our office, we will provide you with a thorough examination followed by a discussion of the best treatment options for you and your smile. If you provide us with your insurance information prior to your appointment, our team will let you know what your estimated orthodontic benefits include during this first visit. Please bring your insurance card with you to the appointment. This important visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs as well as giving us the opportunity to get to know you better!

As a courtesy to you as a new patient, we offer complimentary initial photos and digital X-rays at the start of your appointment. We use these important diagnostic tools to help determine your orthodontic needs. We will ask you to remove any jewelry you are wearing from the neck up to ensure that we capture clear, diagnostic records. This will assist Dr. Stormberg in giving you the most accurate diagnosis possible during your first appointment.

Common Questions We Will Discuss

During your initial examination, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We want you to feel comfortable while spending time with us so please don't hesitate to ask us any questions you may have or to talk about your concerns.

  • Is there a condition that can be treated effectively with orthodontic care?
  • When is the most opportune time to begin treatment?
  • What treatment options will I be able to choose from?
  • Do any I need to have permanent teeth removed?
  • How long will I be in treatment?
  • How much will treatment cost?
  • What are my payment options?

Are you moving to the area for school or military duty? Are you planning on moving in the next year so you are hesitant about starting treatment? You can find a lot of information on our website, but you can always call our office with any questions before scheduling your first appointment.
