your first appointment in 3 easy steps


The aim of your first appointment here at Watford Orthodontics is to enable our specialist orthodontists to collect all the necessary information in order to make a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.


We will ask you what your concerns may be, take a history of your oral health, perform a clinical examination and undertake a radiographic (x–ray) examination if necessary.


You are encouraged to bring any recent radiographs your family dentist may have taken, as this may help to reduce further radiation exposure. If you have previously received orthodontic treatment, it would be useful if you can bring records of this treatment with you.

At the end of the consultation, you will be provided with a brief outline of the treatment options and costs involved. If you wish to progress with treatment then we will arrange to take further records (photographs, study models, x–rays) for final planning.
