Start Your Journey

When you visit our York office, you’re entrusting your smile to the experienced professionals at Andrew Pedersen Orthodontics.

Our goal is to help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, and we believe that your first orthodontic visit is the most important one.

Your First Free Consultation

The first visit to a doctor’s office can be nerve-wracking for kids and adults alike. There’s no need to worry—your first visit to Andrew Pedersen Orthodontics will be completely painless.

Your free consultation will allow you to meet our wonderful, caring team and get to know our orthodontists. They’ll be happy to help you find treatment options that are best suited to your needs and to help you learn more about orthodontics.

We will also:

  • Give you a tour of our state-of-the-art office & answer any questions you have
  • Review your medical & dental history
  • Provide a complete oral examination
  • Determine what treatments (if any) are appropriate for you
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan with estimated treatment durations
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options & payment plans

During this visit, our highly-trained orthodontic treatment coordinator will take some digital photographs of your teeth. These images are the best way for us to further examine your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue in detail without taking up more of your valuable time.

Creating Your Unique Treatment Plan

After reviewing your records, our doctors will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your individualized and unique treatment plan.

Dr. Pedersen will point out specific areas of concern and show you what kind of corrections you might expect, along with photos and videos of similar cases as examples.

They will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and decide what kind of treatment is best for you. Dr. Pedersen and our team will then walk you through the orthodontic process, explaining everything along the way—from timelines and expected discomfort levels, to finances and payment options.

We believe you should be involved with any treatment decisions that affect your smile. We encourage you to ask questions so we can properly address any concerns that you may have regarding your treatment.

We’ll be honest and candid with you about your diagnosis, our recommendations, and any alternative treatment options. By working together, we can help you achieve your goal of a healthy, beautiful smile.

We can’t wait to get to know you!

Start Your Treatment the Same Day

The orthodontic treatment process involves a series of orthodontic visits over a given period of time. 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.
