Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is an important 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 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, with X-rays, to determine whether or what type of treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and affordable 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. 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! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and Dr. Sandman will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Your schedule for office visits will be tailored to the individual’s needs and timing of treatment. Generally, visits to our office will be every eight to ten weeks – and are 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 help you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, our welcoming team will be happy to assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you and being a part of the journey to a better, more confident smile.
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 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.
