Your First Visit

What to Expect During Your First Visit

During your initial consultation, Dr. Dierkes will take the time to listen to your concerns, examine your teeth, and discuss initial treatment possibilities. He and his staff will make every effort to answer all of your questions and let you know the next steps to take in order to get started.

The approach to orthodontic treatment may vary somewhat from patient to patient, as each individual’s needs are different.

Dr. Dierkes will determine the appropriate course of treatment to correct the issues affecting you. Each patient’s treatment plan is individually tailored to meet their exact needs. Dr. Dierkes will inform you of the chosen treatment and how it can produce the results you’re seeking.

Upon receiving your patient treatment plan, cost of treatment will be discussed. JMD Orthodontics and TMJ is available to help you file claims with your dental insurance carrier to ensure you receive the maximum benefit available to you. We also offer financing options to be used to cover out-of-pocket expenses.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic, TMJ, and facial esthetic treatments. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient. With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the care is better for the patient, and the results beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.
