Your Care Starts with a Complete Exam

Your care with Dr. Johnson begins with a comprehensive orthodontic examination. His office is equipped with state-of-the-art tools that provide the information needed for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. These include digital panoramic and cephalometric X-rays, which use significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays. Dr. Johnson’s capabilities also include a sophisticated software system that allows you to see images of your teeth – and how they will move during your treatment – on flat-screen monitors that sit chair side. The revolutionary OrthoCAD system is also used to create a “virtual” model of your entire mouth, which Dr. Johnson uses to plan bracket placement with pinpoint precision.Once your initial exam and diagnostic records are completed, a customized treatment plan will be mailed to you and to your family dentist promptly.
