Communication is an essential part of the orthodontic process. Our office and staff want patients to feel comfortable talking with us and asking questions. Patients know we’ll always be honest and non-judgmental in response. Whenever we’re about to start a new procedure, we explain what we’ll be doing and give the patient a play-by-play description as we proceed. We try to update our patients' progress and explain what we have accomplished during a visit and how treatment has progressed.
