Office Visits - Orthodontics
Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you've always wanted. 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 that your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient, and rewarding as possible. We'll use the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options, giving you the customized, individual care that you deserve.
Every smile starts with a complimentary consultation!
Your complimentary consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, as well as learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your complimentary consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms.
- Provide a complete oral exam and take a panoramic x-ray, to determine if treatment is necessary.
- Help you create a customized treatment plan.
- Discuss all financial information, insurance, and payment options. Please bring a copy of your insurance card so we can do a benefits check for you.
During your complimentary consultation, we will explain everything that you will need to know about your orthodontic treatment so that you can choose what's best for you. If you'd like to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Wainwright, please call our Main Location at (563) 355-1034 or our Sterling Location at (815) 625-3504.
What happens after the initial consultation?
If you do choose to receive orthodontic treatment, you will need to schedule your first appointment. Your first appointment is a records appointment in which we take X-rays, photos, scans, and impressions and is 45 minutes long. In the second appointment, Dr. Wainwright and his staff will start your othodontic treatment. Typically, this appointment is no longer than one hour, and then you're on your way toward your new smile!
Visiting the orthodontist every 4-8 weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 20-40 minutes. Our practice will work with you to see that your appointments are made around your busy schedule. Our goal is for you to spend less time in the dental chair, and more time doing the things you enjoy.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so if you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know as soon as possible. We will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your appointment, please call our Main Location at (563) 355-1034, or our Sterling Location at (815) 625-3504.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
