Orthodontic Patients in Marysville, WA

Our initial introductory exam is complimentary for patients of all ages! We are always excited to meet new patients and consider their first visit a very special one! You will be greeted by our receptionist before being escorted to our patient/family consultation room. Please feel free to request a tour of the office if you would like to see our team in action.
The next step will be a thorough orthodontic exam and discussion of possible treatment options. This important 45 minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs, and we will be able to address the following questions:
  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can improve?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures & options could be used to correct the problem?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • What is the estimated orthodontic treatment fee?
  • What is my expected insurance benefit?
  • What are my payment options?

Moving Forward

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of "diagnostic records" which include:
  • Digital X-rays (Panoramic and Headfilm)
  • Digital facial and intra-oral photographs of your teeth, smile, profile and bite
  • Study models of the teeth

We know your time is valuable. If treatment is indicated, we can obtain some or all of the above records at your initial exam. Following that, we will schedule a consultation visit to discuss Dr. Shaw's treatment recommendations, options, time frames and financial arrangements.
