Our mission is to provide you with a healthy, beautiful smile. We look forward to working with you on every step of the treatment process in order to achieve the best possible results.
Every Patient Begins with an Initial, Complimentary Consultation
At your Initial Consultation, we will:
- Complete an orthodontic evaluation with photographs and x-rays to help guide your treatment recommendations.
- Review medical and dental history
- Discuss financial information, payment plans, and insurance benefits
Next Steps after the Intial Consultation
After your initial consultation, we will finalize your treatment plan and then Dr. Shlash and your clinical team will place your new orthodontic appliance(s). This start appointment generally takes 1-1.5 hours. At all times, our team will put you at ease in making this appointment as smooth as possible.
Follow Up Appointments
Orthodontic Treatment generally takes 12-24 months. However, one of the most important parts of completing treatment in that time window is to make appointments to adjust the appliances every 4-8 weeks. These important follow up appointments are scheduled at the completion of each visit or by contacting our front desk staff. We will always try to make sure these appointments as convenient as possible and will work with you if you need to reschedule.
General Dental Care throughout Orthodontic Treatment
It is important for your dental health to continue to visit your Family Dentist during the entire time period of your orthodontic treatment, including regular 6 month cleaning and check up appointments. If additional dental work needs to be completed, Dr. Shlash and our team will closely coordinate with your Family Dentist to make sure you receive the necessary multidisciplinary treatments.
