Starting Your Smile

At Monroe Orthodontics, in Monroe Township, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is the most important one.

Easy and Painless

Our goal is to give you the healthy, straight and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Choosing to start orthodontic treatment is a big decision. We respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.

The team at Monroe Orthodontics will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible.

Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Monroe Orthodontics will be completely painless.

Your initial consultation will allow you to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.

During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Your Custom Treatment Plan

After reviewing your records, Dr. Leiva will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan.

Dr. Leiva will point out specific areas of concern and show you what corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.

Dr. Leiva will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Leiva and her assistant will then walk you through the process.

They’ll explain everything—from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits. We value the relationship that we’ll build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you’re receiving the best orthodontic care possible.

Once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns, you can start your treatment that same day. We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit.

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Monroe Orthodontics will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible

When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice, and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.


Visiting the Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups.

If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
