Office Policies

Getting Started on Your Orthodontic Treatment

Prior to treatment, patients must visit a dentist for an exam. Patients should visit the dentist every 6 months for a thorough examination and cleaning. Before each orthodontic appointment, patients are encouraged to brush their teeth. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are provided in the office.

Convenient Appointments for Orthodontic Treatment

Your appointments are scheduled to fit your busy lifestyle. Our staff makes every effort to conveniently accommodate each patient’s schedule for their appointments. In order to help us continue to schedule efficiently, 24 hour notice is required to cancel an appointment.

Orthodontic Treatment Time

Treatment may last approximately 15-24 months, though this will vary depending on your individual case. Appointments are typically scheduled from 4 to 12 weeks apart. Your cooperation in keeping scheduled orthodontic appointments, maintaining proper hygiene and taking care of your braces or aligners may allow you to finish your orthodontic treatment early.
