About the Practice
Orthodontics is fun! Most of our patients tell us that their treatment was easier than expected. The braces and other appliances used today are much smaller and more comfortable than they were in the past. We are excited about orthodontics, and we love what we do.
We believe it is especially important that we explain the orthodontic treatment process so our patients and their parents know what to expect before each visit. In fact, we use a technique called "Tell, Show, Do". The procedure is first explained, we then Show how it will be performed, and then we Do the procedure. Often, we will use short videos to demonstrate specific appliances and procedures. Before and during treatment, we provide complete verbal and written instructions to both the patient and parent(s). We review brushing, flossing, food guidelines, and other helpful information.
Your Appointment Time
Have you ever been to a doctor's office and were made to wait for what seemed like forever! We respect your time and feel your time has the same value as ours. It is rare that you will wait for more than ten minutes past your scheduled appointment.
