At Pappel Orthodontics our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile 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.
Dr. Pappel and his Team will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Dr. Pappel utilizes the latest technology, 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 Dr. Pappel and his Team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment 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, to determine whether treatment is necessary and or timing of treatment
Our team 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 Office to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the Initial Consultation?
After your Initial consultation, and you are ready for orthodontic treatment we will schedule your next appointment for Orthodontic Records, that will involve Photographs and a Digital Scan of your teeth so that Dr. Pappel can create a customized treatment plan.
We will then schedule a second consultation to review your Orthodontic Records and Treatment Plan. This will include what is involved, what type of braces and appliances we will use, the duration of treatment and the costs of your Orthodontic Treatment
Once you start your Orthodontic treatment, we will schedule your Orthodontic Visits with Dr. Pappel and his Team about every eight to ten weeks..Dr. Pappel and his Team will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible.
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 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 very important 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.
