Valuable Tips for Choosing Pediatric Orthodontists

dca-blog_article-35-valuable-tips-choosing-pediatric-orthodontist

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children be evaluated for orthodontic treatment by the age of seven. Your child may be wearing braces for a significant period of time, so choosing the right orthodontist is an important task. There’s no need to wait until it’s visibly obvious that your child needs braces before you start searching for family dental care specializing in pediatric orthodontics. Begin interviewing prospective orthodontists now, so you can find a perfect fit that makes the treatment process much easier.

Points to Consider When Choosing an Orthodontist

  • How many providers work in the clinic?
  • Are the office hours compatible with my schedule?
  • Can the provider supply references from other patients or parents?
  • How long has the orthodontist been practicing?
  • How frequent will appointments be?
  • Does the office emphasize good at-home care?
  • How long does the treatment process usually take?
  • How are treatment costs determined?
  • Does the price quote include retainers?
  • Is my insurance plan accepted?

In addition to interviewing providers of pediatric orthodontics in South Bend, be sure to ask your family dentist, your friends, and other parents about area orthodontists. Local online parenting forums can also be a valuable source of information. Other parents can tell you if a provider is willing to spend extra time with a child who is careless or impatient or how easy it is to obtain advice or emergency care on short notice. With a little effort, you can ensure that your child’s orthodontic experience is a positive one.
