Although many Americans go to the dentist to maintain their teeth, some need additional help straightening out their smile. This is where an orthodontist can help. Orthodontists are trained on how to help their patients get the smile of their dreams. To find the right orthodontists, it’s important to know what questions to ask during your search.
What do patients say about the orthodontic office? Review online testimonials or ask family and friends who have gone to the office for their opinions. These can provide great information about the level of professionalism, the quality of the work done, as well as the cost.
Does the office have an opening? Some orthodontic offices are booked out months in advance. Give a call to see the estimated wait for new patients and if there is a list you can be placed on in case a patient cancels their appointment.
Are the results guaranteed? If they are not, it may fall on you to cover the cost should anything go wrong during the process. Check the office’s website or call to see if their work is guaranteed.
