Our foremost goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that 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 experience is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology and offers a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your complimentary 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 suit your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide 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 have, and will provide you with all the information you need to determine which treatment option is right for you. Please contact our office to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your next appointment and Dr. Friedman will complete any necessary records and begin the process of placing your new orthodontic appliance(s). This appointment may take about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you're as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist approximately every four to eight weeks is an important 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 what 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.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important 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'll be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you're receiving the best care possible.
