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.

Doesn’t everyone romanticize orthodontic elastics?! 🥰😂

Not everyone has to wear elastics during their orthodontic treatment. If you do, wearing elastics consistently is vital to completing your treatment on time! ✔️ May as well romanticize it! 💙

For questions about orthodontic elastics, please comment below or if you’re a patient, call us at (281) 392-0888.

It may be April Fools today, but this is not a joke… it actually happened!

Story Time:

One of the first things new hires contribute to the team is by refilling our glove jars! Well...one of our girls, when she started, forgot to check for the glove size before filling Dr. G's glove jar!

She put size small gloves in when they are supposed to be large! Dr. G had trouble getting those gloves on when it was time to see a patient and thought someone MUST be playing a joke on him!! OOPS! 😬🤪 It really was an accident!

These things happen but thankfully they don't stop us from doing what we do best. 😀 Giving YOU the smile you've always wanted.

Have a blessed day, KCC fam! Hope you have a good laugh today with lighthearted april fools jokes! 😂

Did you know Dr. G has been treating orthodontic patients for over 20 years!?

🌟FUN FACT #1: Dr. G has practiced in the dental field for over 30 years! He specialized in cosmetic dentistry before orthodontics.

🌟FUN FACT #2: Dr. Gutierrez is one of the leading doctors who has treated Invisalign patients. When Invisalign launched, they called on him to speak at seminars and teach other doctors!!
