Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. 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.
Our Treatment Options
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
The 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 family’s needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review the dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
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 or your little one. 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 or your child has always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule the first appointment and Dr. Dana will place the new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you or the young patient are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an essential part of the orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with your family to make sure the 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 that first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you and your child.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you or your youngster receives the best possible care.
