Routine Appointments


  1. Sign in on the computer at the front counter in the reception area. This lets the assistant working with you know that you have arrived.
  2. Please arrive 10 minutes early to your appointment to brush your teeth. Don’t forget to bring your toothbrush with you. Immediately after signing in, go to one of the designated brushing areas to brush.                  download23
  3. The assistant will then seat you and check your oral hygiene, check for any broken appliances, and will remove your archwire. You will then be allowed to brush again, if necessary.
  4. Dr. Kardovich will then make adjustments to your archwire or place a new one and answer any questions you might have.
  5. The assistant will then tie in the archwire with ligature ties and/or plastic ties. Always check for poking wires or rough spots before leaving the chair, so the assistant can make you comfortable.
  6. Before leaving the office, please schedule your next appointment.
