Your Initial Consultation & What to Expect

initial consultation

The average length of orthodontic treatment is 1-2 years. No matter the treatment, they all start with the initial consultation. We want to give you an idea of what you can expect at your first orthodontic visit with KCC Orthodontics.

On Time Office

First of all, we are an on time office. This means that you can expect we will see you for your appointment, at your appointment time. We respect your time and ask that you respect ours in return. Additionally, you can expect to be in and out of our office at the scheduled time.

We offer early morning and late afternoon appointments. Keep in mind, these are popular appointments. They may fill up around student or national holidays.

Checking In and Records

Our practice is off of Pin Oak Rd. You will find us on the second floor of the Pin Oak Atrium building. When you walk into the office, you will meet Annie or Jessica at the front desk. They will get you checked in for your appointment and make sure your paperwork is complete.

Shortly after, Carmen will greet you. She’ll take you back to our records area to take a panoramic x-ray and photos of your teeth. Records are important. Dr. Gutierrez will use them to help determine your unique orthodontic plan.

Determining Your Treatment Plan

Next, you’ll meet one of our Treatment Coordinators (TC), Ashley, Amy or Nessa and they will take you back to their TC room. At this point, they’ll get to know you more and confirm with you any concerns with your teeth and/or bite. They’ll also prepare notes for Dr. G and alert him through our computer lighting system to come see you.

Dr. Gutierrez will come in and chat with you. He’ll do a quick oral exam and determine the best treatment plan based on your needs and desires. At that time, you will have a chance to ask any questions.

Estimating Fees and Scheduling

Before your initial consultation ends, the TC will explain your estimated treatment fees. These fees include any insurance benefit you may have. It will also outline any other determining factors of your specific treatment plan.

If you are ready to start treatment, you will have the option of scheduling your next appointment, if you’d like. If a follow up appointment is necessary, you can also schedule at that time.


Thank you for considering Katy ClearChoice Orthodontics. We look forward to meeting you. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your current or future orthodontic care.

Hey there! 👋 Meet our Treatment Coordinators, Nessa, Amy, and Kristy!

As a Treatment Coordinator or TC, these ladies' role is to meet with each one of our new patients!

You can expect them to listen to your needs and desires and then relay them to Dr. Gutierrez.

They’ll gather notes from Dr. G as he determines the correct treatment plan. 📝 Then explain all the ortho terms to you in a way you can better understand!

Our Treatment Coordinators will put together estimated fees based on your unique treatment plan and go over them with you.

Before ending your appointment, you’ll have time to ask questions or express any additional concerns.

At that time you can go ahead and schedule 🗓 if you’re ready to do so!

All of our consultations are complimentary (free of charge!). We can’t wait to meet you!
