Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, and to have fun in the process! 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 your orthodontic experience is as rewarding as possible. Willes Orthodontics utilizes the latest techniques, and offers 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 complete initial exam, find out if treatment is necessary, and if so, learn which options will best meet your needs.
During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms.
- Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays if indicated, to determine whether treatment is necessary.
- Help you create a customized treatment plan.
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans.
Dr. Willes will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial free consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment, and Dr. Willes will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist every six weeks is an essential part of your treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you. Also, you should know that Dr. Willes really hates to make patients wait, and our team does everything we can to keep you on schedule.
We understand that “life happens.” If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do whatever 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 vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
