Tips to Help You Find the Best Orthodontists

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

Many children and adults need braces or other orthodontic treatments to attain healthy, properly aligned teeth. In the past, finding an orthodontist was easier; the general dentist who suggested realignment would simply give you a referral. Today’s complex, advanced orthodontic options widen your range of potential providers, and make finding the best orthodontists a little more complicated. While the task may seem overwhelming, finding an orthodontist is still straightforward. Here are a few tips to help you narrow your selections, and choose the best orthodontist for your needs.

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 has children who have braces, ask which orthodontist they use. You can also gain useful information and honest reviews from friends, neighbors, coworkers, doctors, teachers, and parents’ associations. Prior to setting up a consultation, make sure a prospective provider is a licensed member of the American Association of Orthodontists.

To Find the Best Orthodontists, Analyze Your Consultation

The initial orthodontic consultation is the perfect opportunity to make note of important factors that could influence the quality of your treatment. Before selecting your orthodontist, consider the following:

  • Orthodontist’s level of experience and years in practice
  • Office location and distance from home, school, and office
  • Quality of work apparent in before-and-after photos
  • Technology level and variety of treatment options
  • Treatment costs
  • Dental insurance accepted
  • Financing options
  • How clearly your diagnosis and treatment plan were explained to you
  • Office ambiance
  • Chairside manner of orthodontist and staff
  • Availability of after-hours or emergency treatment
