Your first orthodontic consultation is complimentary.  On this visit you will meet with the doctor and she will do a thorough examination of you or your child’s dentition and orthodontic needs.  To provide you with the best treatment advice, some records will be taken at this appointment: two digital x-rays: a panoramic and cephalometric x-ray, a set of facial and dental pictures.  By doing this, Dr. Menendez will be able to evaluate if treatment is needed right away or if is better to wait a few months and re-evaluate you or your child again. You will be offered the different types of treatment available for your specific situation and will be given an approximate length of treatment time.

If treatment is advised then, our Treatment Coordinator Carmen will go over the paperwork needed and set up your appointment to start orthodontic treatment.


To expedite your orthodontic experience please download the following patient forms: 1. Under 18 Medical History (insurance form)OR 2. Adult Medical History (insurance form).

You can either e-fax them to us 915-990-3883, email them to or drop them by the office before your first initial exam/appointment.


Every patient has a different orthodontic need and requires a different treatment plan. Therefore we have different treatment fees depending on your orthodontic conditions.  A detailed financial plan will be given to you on your first visit.

We offer 5% discount of the patients portion responsibility for treatment if paid in full with either cash or check.
