Our greatest 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 practice 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 technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a clinical examination, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays (if necessary), to determine whether treatment is necessary
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! Before orthodontic treatment can begin, diagnostic radiographs (x-rays), facial and oral photographs and study models of the teeth (molds) are necessary for Dr. Rawji or Dr. Hergott to confirm their diagnosis and establish a customized treatment plan. It is after a thorough analysis of these records that a treatment plan can be finialized.
During your case presentation Dr. Rawji or Dr. Hergott will discuss the problems and treatment goals in great detail. Length of treatment will be confirmed along with the total cost and payment schedule.
Visiting the orthodontist about every five to seven 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. .
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 to nine months, even 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.
