Getting Started

Scheduling an Appointment

If you would like to visit Orenco Orthodontics to see if our treatment is right for you, please call our office at 503-924-2248 to schedule a consultation. Appointments are available at our Orenco office Monday through Thursday.

Your First Exam

Dr. Buxton will conduct a thorough examination. He will discuss the type and length of the treatment that best suits your case. Our treatment options include traditional braces, ceramic braces and Invisalign®. Insurance and financing will also be discussed at this time.


After your first exam, an appointment to put your braces on can usually be scheduled within one or two weeks. An appointment to place braces will generally take one to two hours. Appointments for adjustments will be scheduled every four to six weeks and will take approximately thirty minutes.
