orthodontistThere are many factors to consider when choosing an orthodontic practice to help with you or your child’s oral health. Your smile and overall dental health will be improved forever if you take the time to research and learn more about orthodontics and its lifetime benefits for you or your child.

Financial Flexibility
For countless patients, determining what they can afford is a major decision point with any type of treatment. Most orthodontist practices today have flexible payment options, and many will contact directly with your insurance company. Finding a practice that fits your budget is very important.

Professional Experience
Trust your care to professionals with a proven history of successful outcomes. Professional experience is more than just a number, it is about connection with patients and listening to their needs. When meeting with a practice ask to see before and after photos, or inquire about treatments that were similar to your own.

Location
You can expect to see your orthodontist on a regular basis for follow-up visits once your braces are in place. Proximity to an orthodontic office can mean less time away from school or work.

Office Culture
Choose an orthodontic office that makes you feel comfortable. Is the office welcoming and friendly? Does the orthodontist genuinely listen to your concerns and address your questions?

The idea of straighter teeth and an improved smile after braces can be exciting, but the decision can also raise many questions and can sometimes cause anxiety, especially in younger patients. It is worth taking the extra time to carefully research orthodontic offices to ensure your experience with braces will be a positive one.
