The entire team at Pitner and Carroll Orthodontics would love to welcome you into our family of patients! The doctors and their staff promise to give you a beautiful smile and comfortable bite along with a friendly, nurturing experience. Pitner and Carroll Orthodontics has been proud to serve the residents of Columbia and Chapin, South Carolina for over 40 years, and we have a proven record of top quality care. If this will be your first visit to our offices, you will find helpful information here to prepare for your appointment.
During this appointment, we will take X-rays, photos, and 3D virtual scan of your teeth. If you or your child are ready for treatment, we will then discuss the recommended treatment and your financial options. In the event your child is not yet ready, we will discuss their future orthodontic needs and prepare a program to monitor their dental development.
During each patient’s initial exam, we address the following questions covering the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask your own questions and voice any specific concerns you may have.
We believe that good orthodontic care relies heavily on open communication between Dr. Pitner and Dr. Carroll, our staff, and our patients. We promise to speak candidly and honestly with you about each stage of our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. Working together, we know we can achieve a true partnership with the common goal of helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile!
