Did you know children as young as seven years can benefit from orthodontic care? The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children receive a check-up by age seven that evaluates orthodontic health and identifies opportunities for early intervention. Choosing the right orthodontist to perform this checkup – and later provide your child with braces – is an important decision. Between hockey practice and homework, however, it’s easy to put this decision off until the last minute.
Feeling the pressure to make a selection or scrambling to get an appointment? All is not lost. As you begin to narrow down your search, the most important part is the in-person interview. Even if an orthodontist has glowing online recommendations, the in-person interview is still important. This visit is an opportunity to ask the orthodontist questions about his or her approach to care and evaluate the practice as a whole.
You want to be comfortable and confident that the orthodontist you select will offer your child the best possible care at an affordable price. Use these questions to help guide this selection process.
