If your child sees a dentist outside of our office and it is suggested your child needs braces, a consultation can be scheduled here at Schoen Family Dentistry to evaluate your child's dental condition. An exam and x-rays will help us see what is happening above and below the gumline to determine a treatment approach that will meet your child's individual treatment needs.
If Dr. Tom or Dr. Nate has determined that you or your child need orthodontics, we want you to ask us any questions related to treatment and care as soon as you have them. We will review much of the information with you at the Informed Consent appointment with one of our dentists just prior to active therapy.
At any time if you have a question or need clarification, write down your questions and bring them to an appointment. If you need an answer sooner, give us a call. Understanding what to expect and how to care for braces is essential to treatment success. We have attached an orthodontic Q&A document under the Patient Information tab to answer some of the most common questions.
