Your First Visit



Click here to fill in your health history online by using the tab feature to fill in each line electronically.  Print, sign and bring to your initial exam.

The initial examination is complimentary, allowing you to find out more about your orthodontic concerns, and about our specialty practice objectively (without financial obligation).

Dr. Bhatia will perform a thorough visual examination of your teeth and bite. She will be able to tell you if you would benefit from orthodontic treatment. Treatment can be limited, interceptive, partial, or full, depending on the severity of the problem, patient wishes, and growth potential. You will also be given an estimated treatment time and all financial concerns will be addressed at this first appointment.


Orthodontics is for all ages.

It is never too late to create that perfect smile you have always desired. A great smile translates into greater self-esteem and confidence in both professional and social situations. We are sensitive to the special needs of adults and teens by providing convenient appointment times, warm professional environment, clear aligner therapy (straight teeth without the hassle of metal and wires). Convenient after-school appointments can also be coordinated with those of your children in treatment. What a great way to share the orthodontic experience!

Creating Your Beautiful Smile should be FUN!!

Braces and Invisalign can be fun! Now who are they trying to kid…you say? It is hard to believe, but true. With all of the wonderful advancements in materials and technology, orthodontics really can be a great experience.  Creating a beautiful smile can be fun.  We have many comfortable, gentle treatment techniques. Cool colors, "invisible braces" and even the new clear aligners result in enthusiastic kids, tweens, teens, and adults.


We are excited to offer our patients the very latest advancement in orthodontic technology with the introduction of the Digital Impression Photo Scanner, which eliminates messy gooey impression material that can cause gagging. The scan is more accurate and the images resulting in better fitting devices and hence shorter treatment times.


Our practice rarely ever recommends permanent tooth extractions and we routinely work on ways to make treatment fast, easy, and oh yes, FUN! Most appointments last only 20-30 minutes and are once every 6-12 weeks. The average number of appointments for comprehensive treatment is only about fourteen. Our practice is very special; it's not like the "old days." From the time you arrive at Dr. Bhatia's office for your first appointment, you will realize that CARING is the key word of the day.  At our office we pride ourselves on educating our patients each step of the way, and you will leave our office with a complete understanding of the amazing possibilities available in this field of dentistry.
