What to expect at your first visit

Your first visit is about you getting to know our office and us getting to know you. This visit includes complimentary x-rays, photographs, and a clinical exam with Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Engstrom. If you have not already, please contact our office to complete your online new patient forms or click here to access your paper forms. After we gather all of your information, we discuss your goals as well as our findings and together, determine the unique plan to achieve your best smile.


At Engstrom & Hamilton Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign, clear braces, and traditional braces. We craft your plan to fit your unique needs. We want you to feel confident in your orthodontic plan. Our experienced team will be happy to answer all of your questions.


After this visit, you will leave with a confident understanding of your treatment options, any finances involved, and the sequence of appointments that may be necessary to get things started. You may even be eligible for braces at your first visit!

“This office and the staff is phenomenal! Everyone there makes their patients (and parents) feel at ease with the level of knowledge, the care plans, emergency visits, and financing. Have never had a bad or unpleasant experience, and recommend them to everyone we know!”

Ashley J.

“Dr. Engstrom and his staff are all so patient and caring. Every visit for the past 6 years (multiple rounds) has been met with kindness and timeliness. Dr. Engstrom cares about beautiful smiles and wants to make everyone happy.”

Maureen B.

“Everyone here is so kind and personable. They always somehow remember my child’s name from day one, even the employees walking by say hello to him and use his name. I am thoroughly pleased with how they operate and I highly recommend them to anyone.”

"We have had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Engstrom, Dr. Hamilton and the staff at the Fuquay Varina location! My daughter loves each and every one of them. They have been so personable and professional! They made the whole process easier for us, and we would most definitely recommend them!"

L. Fajardo

"Absolutely love this office and everyone in it! I started working with Dr. Engstrom in February of 2020 and he was very helpful in getting me started on my journey toward what we thought would be jaw surgery. Dr. Hamilton came on while during my treatment and has stepped right in and made himself an expert in my case from day one. Between the two of them I’ve had such amazing results I no longer need the surgery! They’re very open to listening to my concerns and explaining everything to me as we go.

The rest of the staff at the office has always been incredible as well. They actually take the time to get to know you and keep up with your life between visits. Always a friendly smile and never make you feel silly for having a million questions.

Getting braces as an adult was never something I hoped I would need, but this office has made the experience as wonderful as possible!"

E. Rowberg

"Dr. Hamilton and staff are WONDERFUL. I was intimidated by the thought of finding the best orthodontist for my son's needs, and they have made it so easy! They have been thoughtful and conscientious about every single aspect of this experience, from financials to installation to monitoring. All done with care and concern. Thank you!"

C. Jeffreys

"Dr. Engstrom and Dr. Hamilton are wonderful orthodontists! Thorough, attentive, great office staff, on time and efficient. Investing in my smile in my adult life (Invisalign) has been money and time well spent, and I'm grateful to have such great orthodontic care. Highly recommend!"
