Your First Visit; Gadsden, Alabama Orthodontist

The first visit to an orthodontist is a big event, especially for a child that doesn't really know what to expect. Hopefully, this page of our site will help show you what to expect. We have also provided you with PDF versions of our first-time patient forms (below) that you can print and fill out at home, saving you time when you check-in. Your first visit should take about 30 minutes to one hour and will give us insight to your orthodontic needs. If you have any questions, though, don't hesitate to contact us!

Obtaining your Information

Just like any healthcare provider, we will ask that you fill out some paperwork that will inform us of your medical history and your financial and/or insurance information. If you like, you may view, print, and fill out this form by using the links below. Just bring them with you to your first appointment!

Printable forms are Adobe PDF files. You will need the free PDF Reader application to view/print them.

If you have any insurance questions concerning your benefits, and you have not provided the basic insurance information to our office, it would be helpful for you to call 256-467-4758 or fax 256-467-4759 that information to us before your appointment so we can hopefully answer any questions when you arrive.

Once you have checked in and provided us the above-mentioned paperwork, you will be called in to visit with Dr. Wilborn. Dr. Wilborn will conduct a thorough examination and discuss all potential treatment options with you. Once the examination and discussion are complete, you can schedule an appointment to get started, or, if you prefer, wait and let us know later when you are ready. You will not be pressured or rushed in any way! Your first visit is all about providing you professional care, advice, and answering your questions. We look forward to meeting you and working with you to resolve any orthodontic concerns you may have!

If you haven't scheduled your first visit yet, and you are ready to, you may do so online!
