What to Expect

Starting Your Smile in Lacey, Lakewood, or Yelm

At Whitewater Orthodontic Studios, Dr. Andrew Leavitt believes that your first orthodontic visit is your most important one.

Easy and Painless

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. However, your first visit to Whitewater Orthodontic Studios will be completely painless.

You’ll be welcomed by our team, introduced to our orthodontist, Dr. Leavitt, and shown around our office. Then, our skilled orthodontic treatment coordinator will take some digital photographs of your teeth, and maybe an X-ray. These images give us the best way to see your teeth, jaws, and soft facial tissue.

After reviewing these records, Dr. Leavitt will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan.

He will point out specific areas of concern. He will also show you what kind of corrections you can expect that will give you the custom orthodontic treatment you deserve.

He will take as much time as needed to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Leavitt and his assistant will then walk you through the process.

They will explain everything from appointments to financial options. Our goal is to make sure you leave our office with all of your questions answered.

“Very comfortable environment. Did not feel pressured to pursue treatment. Felt very comfortable discussing financial expectations and all of my questions were answered during initial visit.”- Kelli
