Dr. Zilio has extensive experience in orthodontics.
By trusting him for your treatments, you will be assured to be in the hands of an expert.
Come and meet him for a first evaluation in one of the three
clinics where he practices, in Rivière-des-Prairies, Montreal-Nord or Repentigny.
The first visit: is a turning point
for your oral health
Having badly aligned teeth damages the aesthetics of a smile, but did you know that it can also cause functional disorders?

Indeed, when the teeth are misaligned or overlapping, they are more likely to wear out and are more difficult to clean. The patient is then more likely to see dental pathologies in the teeth, such as cavities or gingivitis. In addition, an occlusion problem can also cause speech difficulties, as well as masticatory problems. This can cause digestion disorders in patients.

By visiting an orthodontist for the first time, you will be able to have a good understanding of your condition, while learning more about the treatment options available to you.


The first visit is probably the most important as a patient, as it should allow you to make an informed decision.

In order to properly prepare for this visit, we strongly recommend that you visit our website where we present the frequently asked questions of patients before they undertake orthodontic treatment. This will allow you to better understand the implications of following orthodontic treatment and, therefore, to be able to ask the right questions to Dr. Zilio at this first meeting.

Review & Planning

During your first appointment, Dr. Zilio will first have a discussion with you in order to have a better understanding of the reason that prompts you to consult him. He will then be able to carry out an in-depth examination of your teeth and your mouth. This examination will allow him to detect the problems present as well as those that are likely to occur if no action is taken, then he will be able to explain your situation to you.

Dr. Zilio will then present you the treatment options available, always considering your needs, your expectations and your budget. This way, one or more treatment plans can be presented to you.


Dr. Zilio will tell you about the alternatives to treatment, and will bring to your attention several elements that you need to consider when making your decision. These include:

* Planning the treatment over time and the steps it involves;

* The duration of each step and the treatment as a whole;

* The devices needed to achieve optimum results and their operation;

* The cooperation that will be expected of you as a patient.

This visit will also be an opportunity to proceed with the financial planning of your treatment. The payment terms will be explained and you will receive an estimate for the insurance if you have coverage for orthodontic treatments as a result of your visit.


The first visit is obviously of paramount importance to the success of a treatment in orthodontics.

After this appointment, you will be able to make the best decision, respecting your expectations and your budget, since you will have a better understanding of your situation and treatment plans that will have been presented to you. In addition, all of the related information can be emailed to you so that you can make an informed choice once you are at home.
