No matter how comfortable your child is with the dentist, braces can open up a whole new world of concerns for them. At Great Whites we take the same caring approach to your first orthodontic exam that we do with every other aspect of your child’s dental care. The process begins with a brief exam in which we will determine several things – especially if your child has a problem that orthodontics can address. If we determine that your child is ready to start orthodontic treatment, we will recommend that orthodontic records including photos and tooth molds be taken in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Of course, we also present the cost, and payment options.
