Following these five helpful tips can help ensure that those in need of orthodontic treatment locate a professional who can provide excellent results.
Online PR News – 13-October-2010 – – EAGAN, ROSMOUNT, ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth's Eagan and Rosemount orthodontics office recently released a tip sheet of five considerations when seeking an orthodontist.
"There are thousands of orthodontists out there," said Eisenhuth, a Mendota Rosemount Invisalign provider (http://doctorjennifer.com/invisalign.php). "Our goal in offering these considerations is to give patients some important information that will help them during the decision-making process when selecting the right professional for orthodontic treatment."
1. Choose an orthodontist, not a dentist.
An orthodontist is a dentist who has received specialty training in orthodontic treatment in addition to having attended dental school. An orthodontist has completed an orthodontic residency that involves two additional years of extensive training in this particular field.
2. Ask if the provider you're considering is a board certified orthodontist.
In addition to completing an accredited graduate program in orthodontics, an additional step an orthodontist can take to further validate their expertise is certification by The American Board of Orthodontics. Achieving this status means the orthodontist has passed a written examination and presented treated cases to a board of expert examiners for review.
1. Choose an orthodontics office that your child finds engaging.
"During the course of treatment, compliance is an important factor," said Eisenhuth, a Rosemount orthodontist. "The more engaged the patient is with the orthodontist and the office in general, the better the compliance and end result tends to be.”
Patients who are excited about their orthodontic appointments tend to do a better job of practicing good oral hygiene and following the instructions provided, said the Rosemount braces expert (http://doctorjennifer.com/types-of-braces.php).
1. Seek out a practice that offers flexibility in appointment scheduling.
It is a good idea to find out whether the orthodontist is at the location you visit on a full-time basis, Eisenhuth said. Many orthodontists divide their time between a couple of different locations. Because of the busy lives we lead, sometimes it is beneficial to work with an orthodontist who has the flexibility to see you any day of the week at the location that is most convenient for you.
1. Select an orthodontist who offers financing flexibility.
"Find a provider who offers flexible, affordable finance options," said Eisenhuth, who also is a Rosemount Incognito braces provider (http://doctorjennifer.com/incognito.php). "This is especially important, given the current economy."
Orthodontic treatment typically is a two-year commitment and during that time, there can be changes in one or both parents' income.
"Finding an orthodontist who can adjust the payment schedule to work with families who do fall on hardships during the course of treatment can mean the difference between completing your child’s treatment or not,” she said.
