dca-blog_article-25_tips-find-right-orthodontist

Children and even adults may need braces or other devices to help them gain healthy, properly aligned teeth. When treatment options were simpler, people often visited the orthodontist their general dentist recommended. With today’s advanced dental technology and availability of new treatments, the pool of dental specialists is larger, and the task of finding the best orthodontists may seem overwhelming. Fortunately, it isn’t as difficult as it may seem. The following tips can help.

Knowing How to Choose an Orthodontist – Before you schedule a consultation, here are a few things to keep in mind. Your dentist works with area orthodontists, and regularly sees the results of their treatments, so his or her recommendations and advice are valuable. If your dentist or the clinic’s staff members have children with braces, ask them which orthodontist they see or would recommend. You can also gain useful information and honest reviews from friends, coworkers, neighbors, teachers, doctors, and parents’ associations. Prior to setting up a consultation, make sure a prospective provider is a licensed member of the American Association of Orthodontists.

Finding the Best Orthodontists – An initial consultation is a perfect opportunity to make note of important things that could affect the quality of your experience and treatment results. Before making your final choice, consider the following factors carefully.

  • Location and distance from home, school, and office
  • The provider’s level of experience and time in practice
  • Options for after-hours and emergency treatment
  • How well your diagnosis and treatment plan were explained to you
  • Variety and technology level of available treatment options
  • Treatment costs and financing options
  • Insurance coverage
  • Office ambiance and chairside manner of provider and staff
  • Quality of work visible in before-and-after photos
