Consultation & Exam


Back to treatment detail...

What is the aim of the consultation?

There is a different story behind everyone who comes in to see us at Ollie & Darsh. However, each individual holds the same interest: to improve their confidence through correcting their smiles.

When a client first joins the clinic we immediately set out to find out more about their story and what their motivation is to have any treatment done. Once we’ve fully understood that and their lifestyle, we can then make recommendations on how to help.

What happens during an Invisalign® consultation?

We will go through a digital treatment plan called ClinCheck. We can digitally plan the position of your teeth. ClinCheck also works to give an idea of how many aligners will be needed and the duration of treatment as well.

What are the common treatment solutions?

Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles® aligners are usually part of a bigger overall solution that we offer the patient. Based on these solutions, sometimes two or three, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of the options. After clinical examination and agreement on the treatment, then we progress to take records.

What happens during a Six Month Smiles® consultation?

With Six Month Smiles® (6MS) , we will plan where we would like the brackets to be positioned and whether we need to alter any part of the plan. Once we have the plan set up, our colleagues at 6MS will provide the setup of the brackets so we can commence with the braces on into treatment phase.  

What happens initially?

Initially, we complete a full clinical examination on our clients and then go through the relevant consent procedures prior to starting any treatment.

With treatments such as Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles®, we need to take a full set of photographs and complete an orthodontic examination (this does not take long!). We then take either a digital scan or an impression.

How will we communicate?

Each treatment we perform at Ollie & Darsh is seen as a journey, and within that we collaborate with our clients from start to finish. Particularly during the preliminary stages of the treatment, we work mutually with our clients to ensure aligners and braces are suited to you. This is a joint process and we like to share the outcome with our patients before designing and fabricating the aligners, or braces.

What will we discuss during the consultation?

Our consultations are really friendly and informative. It is an ideal opportunity to discuss any anxieties you may have or any concerns you may have in relation to your smile. We can chat about the benefits and features of our services, your options, how your journey begins and of course how much your treatment may cost. We can pass on information about our attractive monthly payment options and any offers we may be running.
