First Visit | Gary M. Holt | Littleton and Highlands Ranch CO

Lisa S.

We had checked out several practices before we came to see Dr Holt and we really liked the energy that their office had. Hannah decided that was the place for her. It made her feel comfortable and as she had had a bad dentist experience when she was young, her being happy was very important to us. Tina was very helpful, she also helped us find a new dentist & even made the call to check out the insurance coverage for us! The front desk makes every effort to accommodate apts when a bracket needs replacing!! Hannah is looking forward to seeing her canines in the correct place and she will feel a little more confident when they are down I would definitely recommend Dr Gary Holt to anyone who is looking for a safe, happy , efficient environment for their children.

Dr. Holt and his staff are more than just ordinary, they are EXTRODINARY!!!! The staff from the front desk to the back office have great customer service and orthodontic skills and are always very professional. Dr. Holt is great also, very freindly, chatty and has a great sense of humor. Would highly recommend Dr. Holt to my friends and family.

First Visit

Welcome and thanks for looking to us for your orthodontic needs! We are always excited about meeting new patients and seeing what we can offer you. Dr. Holt believes it is important to establish a personalized plan or road map for each patient. Because it is important to establish if treatment is needed the initial consultation is complimentary and includes 8 digital photographs and a panoramic x-ray. It is important to note that the American Association of Orthodontist recommends your first consultation by 8 years old.

The initial consultation is a 60-minute visit and includes a thorough examination, as well as discussion of treatment options, approximate time frame for treatment, and financial arrangements. We want you to have a clear understanding of what to expect and all of the options available to you.

During the initial examination for each patient we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem? Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • Approximately how long will treatment take?
  • How does Invisalign work and I am a candidate?

While we can often answers to these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific goals after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment we also reserve time during the initial exam for diagnostic records. However, life is busy and if it is more convenient to schedule a separate records appointment we can accommodate your need. At the time of records we will need to take another x-rays, a bite registration, upper and lower impression and usually spacers (no spacers for Invisalign patients). These records are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan.

If you have a current (within 6 months) panoramic x-ray please bring it with you as well as your insurance information. This will help us give you the most accurate information at your visit.

We look forward to building a relationship with you and your family during your treatment at our office and can’t wait to see your new smile!
