Default Sprocket Mounting

I'm finishing my first build but not happy with my rear wheel. Either the wheel was not true before the sprocket was mounted or mounting the sprocket pulled it out of alignment. I did follow the directions available and tightened the bolts like you would a car tire.

Does anyone know if a bike shop would "true" a wheel with the sprocket mounted? Would you remove the sprocket and have the wheel trued and then start over? Are there tricks to getting this correct the first time?

Thanks in advance for any help!
