First Visit

We look forward to meeting you in our Orthodontic practice on your first visit. During this time we will help you get acquainted with our office and enlighten you about orthodontic treatment and braces.​

At Dr. Piet Botha orthodontic practice, we aim to give you a range of different treatment and braces options, best to suite your needs.​

Your first orthodontic visit will consist of a clinical examination and discussion of the possible treatment. Thereafter the necessary records will be taken. This may include X-rays, study models and clinical photographs.

After we have evaluated your records, we will meet you for a second consultation appointment (which is included in the cost of the original first appointment), to explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. We provide a diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a summary of our suggested treatment plan and estimated fees.

We understand that each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to advise you on what should work best for you. We believe that orthodontic treatment and placement of braces should improve function, as well as appearance, natural comfort and thus, improved self esteem should follow.

We do realize what we are going to do, or not do, will effect a patient for a lifetime, therefor we are very aware of the accompanying responsibility as Orthodontists and the use of braces on patients.
