Your first visit to Stanley Markovitz DMD, MDS involves a few special steps so that we can get to know you. Your initial examination is used to determine what orthodontic issues you are dealing with, how severe they are, and which treatment methods are viable options for correcting these issues. To do this, we complete a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, and x-rays. If needed, we will complete other diagnostics such as scans. We always make time for patients to start the same day if desired.
