First Screening Examination
 
This free exam by our orthodontic residents and faculty lasts about 15 minutes, and allows us to determine if you, or your child is ready for braces.   We will answer many of your questions at this time, but please know we often need more information before we can answer them all.  Please bring any x-rays or information you or your dentist believes will be helpful.
 
Many times patients are ready to begin braces and sometimes we can take all initial records at this visit to save you a trip to WVU Orthodontics!  In order for us to gather all information it takes us about 60 to 90 minutes and we charge $250-$350. 
 
If you or your child are not ready for braces, we will ask to see you back anywhere from 3 to 24 months, depending on when we can predict will be the best time to start braces.
