Office Visits

Healthy, Beautiful Smiles

Our top priority is giving you the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted coupled with the best experience possible. 

We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way your smile looks and your bite feels and functions. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding and positive as possible. We utilize the latest technology to shorten and better approximate treatment timing and efficiency, and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Request an Appointment

Every smile starts with a complimentary initial consultation!

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team and learn more about how orthodontic treatment with Damon braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign clear aligners can transform your smile and bite and jaw function. You will receive a complimentary complete initial intraoral exam, and review treatment goals and options to determine which plan is best. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized, individualized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and will do all we can to make your orthodontic journey a beautiful and rewarding one. 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! After your consultation, we will schedule your next visit with one of our amazing doctors – Dr. Sandman, Dr. Kuyunov or Dr. Kaplan who will either place your new braces, or bond attachments and deliver your new clear Invisalign aligners. This appointment can take an hour because we want to ensure you are as comfortable and informed as possible during this important part of the orthodontic journey.

Scheduling Appointments

You should plan on visiting our office for braces or Invisalign checkups/adjustment visits about every eight to twelve weeks although timetables can always be customized. These visits are an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. We will always do our best to accommodate your needs while ensuring that your time remains yours. This means reducing required office visits as much as possible while making appointments as positive and memorable as possible. When scheduling, please let us know which days and times work best for you and we will always bend over backward to accommodate where we are able.

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 manage through challenges. 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 general/family dentist at least once every six months for 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.
