Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, 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. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, and offers a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial exam!
Your initial exam will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial exam, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan and answer any questions you may have
- Take orthodontic records at your request
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 exam.
What happens after the initial exam?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! At your next appointment we will discuss the doctors diagnosis and treatment recommendations, finances and insurance coverage if present. Once completed you will set up your first appointment where Dr. Holmberg or Dr. Vayda 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 eight weeks is an important 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 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
It is very important 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.
