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.
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 meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history information
- Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays at no additional charge to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
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. Pickard or Dr. Alatsis 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.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to ten weeks 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, we recommend scheduling as far in advance as possible in order to make sure we have appointment dates and time availability that works best for you.
We understand that “life happens!" If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please contact our office and let us know as soon as you can so that we can do everything possible 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
Regular dental cleanings are very important during orthodontic treatment!
It is vital that you continue to see your family dentist at least every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, or more frequently as recommended by your dentist.
We will coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
