Questions to Ask About Orthodontics

questions to ask about orthodontics

Here are ten things to ask about orthodontics! We know there is a lot to think about, so let us help you prepare for your consultation.

1| What dental insurance do you accept?

Whether the practice accepts your insurance plan is important to note ahead of time. Additionally, some practices take no-insurance patients as well.

2| What can I expect at an adjustment appointment?

We recommend asking if the office is an on-time office and the average length of appointments. Understand what time appointments are offered so you can plan ahead in your schedule.

3| Does your doctor believe in conservative treatment plans?

This means that he/she will choose a treatment that keeps all your teeth, whenever possible. At KCC Orthodontics, Dr. Gutierrez chooses only to extract teeth when it is absolutely necessary.

4| What type of scenario should I consider an emergency?

In orthodontics, the good news is, that there are little to no true emergencies! There may be higher importance on certain types of scenarios. Ask them how they prefer to handle these situations so you can prepare with ease of mind.

5| Will I, as the patient, see the doctor at every appointment?

Some orthodontic practices choose to train their clinical team on routine appointments. The doctor will only be present at various points of the treatment. Other offices, like ours, prefer that Dr. G sees every patient, almost every time.

6| What kind of care do you provide for retention, after orthodontic treatment?

Retention is for life, as long as you want to maintain your new smile! This is vital to the success of life after orthodontics.

7| Can you explain to me how insurance pays for orthodontics?

Orthodontic insurance pays coverage over the course of treatment. Each plan varies, so be sure to ask how your specific plan will pay.

8| If I have concerns about my treatment, who should I contact for questions?

The way a practice answers this question is a reflection of how they value customer care.

9| Why should I come here and trust you with my treatment?

At KCC Orthodontics, it is an honor that you would trust us with your orthodontic treatment. We treat our patients like family, each one unique and special to us.

10| Do you have an iTero scanner and if so, how will you use it?

The iTero Scanner is a newer product that has transformed orthodontic treatment! It enhances clear aligner treatment and retainer experience. Each office utilizes this digital technology in various ways.

Your treatment starts here ➡️ at the front desk. Typically you'll be greeted by Annie!

Our front desk 'receptionists' are more than just receptionists though. The longer you get to know us, the more you'll realize that these ladies handle much more than simply managing our schedule.

Much of the behind-the-scenes work happens right here, in between checking you in and out of your orthodontic appointment.

Should you ever have any questions about scheduling or your appointment, feel free to ask us at the front desk! If we don't know the answer to your question, we'll know who to ask. 😄
