Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and 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. Collins and his team will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is rewarding. We utilize the latest technology, and offer 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 our 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 3D X-rays and photographs, to determine if treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
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 Dr. Collins at Parker Orthodontics to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! If you have chosen Invisalign, Dr. Collins will review your scan, treatment plan your Invisalign, and order your aligners. Your Invisalign® will be delivered to you once they arrive in the office. If you have chosen braces, Dr. Collins will place your new orthodontic braces or appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour and a half, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
You will be visiting Dr. Collins approximately every 8-10 weeks however they may be further apart if you chose Invisalign. Dr. Collins 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 Dr. Collins at Parker Orthodontics and his 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.
