New Patients

Dr. Michele Paterno, DMD, MSD and her friendly team at Paterno Orthodontics are looking forward to meeting you soon and learning more about your concerns. We understand the importance of having a smile that you love, and we want to help you get the smile you are dream of having.

As a new patient, you may be wondering what is involved with orthodontic treatment. Many of our new patients have questions about financing and insurance, how long the treatment will take and how many appointments will be required. If you are a parent, you may be wondering if child orthodontics will provide permanent results or if additional treatment will be needed later in life. These are only a few of the many questions people have when they visit an orthodontist for the first time, and we will take the time to answer all of your questions.

During your first visit to Paterno Orthodontics, we will also examine your teeth so that we can customize a treatment plan that is tailored specifically to you. You can learn more about the state-of-the-art equipment that may be used as part of your treatment, and you can personally meet many of the staff members who will be caring for you. Whether you need braces, Invisalign, clear ceramic braces, gold braces, Damon system braces or other types of braces or corrective treatments, we can help you to learn about the differences so that you select the treatment that is best for you. We also offer a full range of other services, including teeth whitening. After all, while you want your teeth to be perfectly straight, you also want them to radiate with brilliant whiteness.

All of our patients leave our office with a good hygiene, goody bag. We promote Crest Oral-B Embrace It to maintain good oral health. 

If you are unhappy with the look or function of your teeth, now is a great time to schedule your first appointment with our team at Paterno Orthodontics and to explore the treatment process in detail.  Call our office today to schedule an initial appointment with us.
