Our primary goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that 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 office will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest in orthodontic treatment, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every new smile starts with a complimentary orthodontic evaluation!
Your initial evaluation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete orthodontic exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial evaluation, Dr. Parker and Dr. Moore will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact any of our offices to schedule your initial examination.
What happens after the initial examination?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your initial visit, we will schedule an appointment for diagnostic records, which are photographs, panoramic and cephalometric radiographs (x-rays), and molds of your teeth. Dr. Parker and Dr. Moore will then use those records to develop a treatment plan, which will be discussed in detail with you at a consultation appointment. Then, we'll schedule the appointment to put on your braces! This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting Dr. Parker and Dr. Moore every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what 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 front office staff will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.
Visiting your dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you visit your family dentist once every six months, especially during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
