Frequently Asked Questions
The consultation typically lasts about 45 minutes.
The first 15 minutes of the consultation is dedicated to taking full orthodontic records including photos and x-rays at no charge which will assist our orthodontists in planning you or your child’s treatment.
During the next 30 minutes you will meet our orthodontist and have a 1-on-1 discussion with our treatment coordinator about possible orthodontic treatments. During this time, you will have the opportunity to discuss any orthodontic and dental problems you may be concerned about.
There are 5 essential questions that we will cover during the consultation:
- Is there an orthodontic problem, and if so, what is it?
- What treatment options are available to you to correct the problem? (i.e. braces, Invisalign, expander, etc.)
- What is the estimated length of treatment?
- What is the total cost of treatment?
- What payment options are available?

Our services are provided by orthodontists. Orthodontists are dentists who, after finishing 4 years of dental school, then went to orthodontic school for another 3 years for extensive training with braces, Invisalign, expanders, bite correction appliances, etc. The only thing our doctors do – all day, every day – is straighten teeth! Our orthodontists will straighten teeth on hundreds of patients per year and thousands of patients in their lifetime.
On the contrary, most general dentists don’t do any orthodontics. The few that do treat only a handful of cases per year, and usually these cases are very simple cases (ie. retreatment of a patient who previously had braces but stopped wearing their retainers and teeth shifted slightly).
Orthodontics is something you only want to go through and pay for once, so trust your smile to a specialist 🙂
