Our greatest goal is to give you a healthy, confident, and beautiful smile. Choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision. Our practice will work with you to ensure that your orthodontic experience is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering 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 consultation gives 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 complimentary consultation, our team will:
- Provide a complete oral exam to determine if treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
During this consultation, we will explain everything that you will need to know about your orthodontic treatment, so that you can choose what's best for you – no strings attached. Please contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Michael Friedman.
What happens after the initial consultation?
Dr. Friedman will go over your medical and dental histories and prescribe the necessary X-rays, iTero® Element™ digital scans, and photos to confirm our treatment plan. We will prepare a comprehensive letter for you and your general dentist detailing your proposed treatment. If you choose to receive orthodontic treatment, you will schedule your first treatment appointment. This appointment is when Dr. Michael Friedman will place your new orthodontic appliance. Typically, this appointment is no longer than one hour.
Visiting the orthodontist every 4-8 weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 10-20 minutes. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are scheduled when it is convenient for you.
If you're running late or need to reschedule any appointment, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice; we're looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is important that you continue to visit your family dentist at least once every six months, especially during your orthodontic treatment, for cleanings and routine checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
