First Visit

Parker Orthodontics is always accepting new patients. We offer complimentary consultations where we conduct a full exam and discuss the process of getting braces in Baton Rouge, Central, Gonzales and Donaldsonville. Dr. Parker and his team will discuss the treatment plan and length of treatment during your initial exam.

Our exams are very thorough so please allow time for the consultation appointment. We value your time, so please feel free to bring your completed new patient form to your consultation.

Getting Started

Before braces are placed, patients must visit a dentist for an exam and have any necessary fillings. Patients should visit the dentist every six months for a thorough examination and cleaning. Before each orthodontic appointment, patients are encouraged to brush their teeth. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are provided in the office.
