Starting Your New Smile

At Nordberg Orthodontics, in Puyallup, we believe that your first orthodontic visit is important.

Nordberg Orthodontics Ortho for all ages

Easy and Painless

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

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

Our highly-trained, orthodontic treatment coordinator will then take some digital photographs of your teeth. These images are the best way for us to see your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

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.

Once you feel like we've answered all of your questions and concerns, you can start your treatment that same day. We value your time, and we know you want to make the most of your visit.

Your Custom Treatment Plan

We’ll do our best to understand your "chief complaint" (the reason you came to see us). Dr. Nordberg will evaluate your records with you (photos, X-rays, and digital impressions) and discuss the various options for achieving your dream-smile goals!

If there are multiple options (braces vs. aligners or treatment now vs. treatment later), we will try to describe those options and the related trade-offs of each option. If there are methods available to speed up your treatment, we will discuss those methods.

We’ll provide a take-home visual-summary with notes so you can consider the options available to you in the comfort of your own home. Ultimately, we want you to understand your options for achieving the smile of your dreams.

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

They’ll explain everything—from scheduling to expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.
