Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted and you deserve. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.
Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology, and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your FREE initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam, review recent X-rays or take current X-rays, take a set of digital photographs, and possibly a 3D intraoral iTero scan, and help to determine the best time for treatment to begin
- Evaluate your orthodontic goals and discuss how braces or Invisalign could help you on your journey
- This appointment should take approximately 60 minutes
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! If you are deemed ready to start your orthodontic journey after your complimentary consultation, we will schedule you an appointment to get your invisalign/braces treatment started. If you are not ready for treatment yet, we will place you on a recall for a certain time period to monitor your dentition, until it is the best time to get started with treatment.
Visiting our office about every four to six weeks (every 11-12 weeks in most cases for Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® patients) is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you.
We understand that “life happens!” If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months (or at his or her prescribed interval) for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
