What to Expect

Each individuals orthodontic problem is different and deserves personalized attention. Your initial visit is an important opportunity for us to get to know you and what you want to accomplish. At your first exam visit, we will be taking digital images of your teeth and bite and a digital x-ray of your jaws.


If it is determined that treatment is needed, Dr. Hernandez will present you with a personalized evaluation, which includes a recommended treatment plan and the flexible payment options that we provide. You will leave our office with all of the information you need to make an informed decision about receiving orthodontic care from us.

We value your time and we appreciate the effort you make to see us. We understand the task involved with having to take time from our jobs and taking our children out of school. Therefore, we are prepared to take orthodontic records at every initial visit. In doing so, we can eliminate any additional preliminary visits that some orthodontic practices expect and require before your braces are even put on. If it is determined that you or your child is a candidate for orthodontic care and it is your wish to begin treatment with us, please let us know. We will be ready to save you time away from work or school.

The beautiful thing about in house financing is that there is a small initial down payment and your financing is interest free! You can get started right away! What’s stopping you?


What To Expect

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.

Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.


Dr. Hernandez is, hands down, the nicest orthodontist I've ever dealt with. In fact, I don't even want to limit it to the dental profession. She is the nicest doctor I've ever met. Her smile is contagious. And that's fitting, considering she's fitting braces on people to make their smiles better.
There is not a more professional person in the field, and I'm happy to have met her.
For anyone considering where to go, this is the place. It's not only worth making the trip if you live in Escondido or the surrounding areas, but...even if you lived 100 miles away, you'd be wise to make the trip there.

Dr Hernandez is the absolute best!! I cant say enough good things about her. She is a perfectionist and she is very accommodating to say the least. Even if I call the office after hours she is sure to contact me right away on her cell. She is one in a million and I highly reccommend her!!!
