How to Select an Orthodontist


Given the long-term nature of orthodontics, committing to an orthodontist is something that you should not take lightly. Many people wear their appliances and retainers for years, so it’s a good idea to invest as much time as you can into the selection process. Our team at DAHER Orthostyle™understands the various factors that can influence your decision in selecting the right person for the job and have outlined a few of them below to help you out.

References

One of the easiest ways to find a reliable and experienced orthodontist is through your dentist. If you have been with your dentist for a long time and trust their opinion and services, getting a referral through them is your best bet. Ask them for multiple options if necessary and do some research on each one to determine the best choice for your needs and current situation.

Office Hours

Most orthodontic offices are open throughout the week, but office hours vary from office to office. You should consider whether the office hours will work with your schedule. Find out how far in advance appointments need to be booked and how much notice is required to reschedule appointments without penalty.  At Daher Orthostyle™ we understand that many working professionals have schedules that change frequently, so we offer flexibility and do our best to accommodate last-minute requests for appointment changes.

Costs

For many people finances will be a factor in selecting an orthodontist. Although it’s best to prioritize quality and reputation over the cost at any particular office, it’s reasonable to expect flexible interest-free payment plans.Most offices will require a down payment and then offer to spread the balance of treatment fees over several months.  Very few orthodontists in BC will bill your insurance company directly. Don’t hesitate to ask questions such as:

  • How is the cost of the treatment determined?
  • Are there any additional fees that may be incurred during treatment?

Experience

Choosing a professional that has been in the industry for a long time is a key signthat you’ll recieve quality treatment and results. Furthermore, having confidence in the person that you are going to be entrusting your teeth to for the next several years can make the process much less stressful.

At DAHER Orthostyle, we understand the importance of investing in orthodontic treatment. Having an improper bite and misaligned teeth can cause long-term problems and affect your overall oral health.  But the bill for services can be higher than you expected. Luckily, we offer affordable and professional treatment options to ensure that you get the quality results that you need.
