Starting Your Smile

At Embrace Orthodontics, in Ann Arbor, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is the most important one.

We’re excited to help you transform your smile! We understand you or your child could be a bit nervous about what to expect, so let’s talk about what will happen.


Easy and Painless

The first visit to a doctor’s office can sometimes seem intimidating, especially for kids. But, your first visit to Embrace Orthodontics will be completely painless.

At your first free consultation, you’ll be welcomed by our team, introduced to expert orthodontist Dr. Li, and shown around our office.

Before your visit, we’ll review information in the Patient Forms that you will fill out before your first visit to understand your concerns and goals.

Take digital records (photographs, radiographs, and intraoral scans as needed) and examine your teeth, jaws, and soft tissues to allow Dr. Li to make an accurate diagnosis. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.


Creating Your Custom Treatment Plan

After reviewing your records, Dr. Li will join you in a private consultation room to explain and discuss your personalized treatment options that address your concerns and meet your goals.

Dr. Li will point out specific areas of concern and show you what corrections you can expect by showing photos and videos of similar cases.

Dr. Li will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Li and her assistant will then walk you through the process.

They’ll explain everything from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances. Embrace Orthodontics provides customized, affordable payment plans and financing options to help you achieve your dream smile!

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

If your treatment plan permits, you can start your treatment the same day to save you another trip to our office! Please plan to be with us for an hour after your free consultation to get the bonding procedure completed.

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits. We value the relationship that we’ll build with you and your family throughout that process and want you to be confident that you’re receiving the best orthodontic care possible.
