Red Flags at an Orthodontist

red flags to avoid_katy texas orthodontics

When choosing a provider for your orthodontic treatment, look out for red flags. To make your search easier, we’ve outlined red flags to avoid when choosing an orthodontist. With a reliable orthodontic practice, you can restore your smile with peace of mind.

There are many dentists and orthodontists in Katy, Texas who offer services. How do you entrust they are someone dependable? Asses the office against the following red flags.

Customer Service

This one seems like a given. From the moment you walk in the door, to the assistants and doctor, you deserve to be treated like a person (not a number). You’ll feel more comfortable sharing about your teeth if the team is friendly and inviting.

Look for an office that allows you to speak about any hesitations you have or ask questions. Every patient’s experiences and needs are different. Find an orthodontic practice that desires a personal relationship with you. If they are resistant to these, you may want to consider another place.


An orthodontic practice is a health practice. There are guidelines your ortho practice should be following. Look at the floors; are there wires and instruments on the floor? Are the assistants changing gloves between patients? It sounds crazy, but we’ve heard about it happening! Do they have messy sinks or orthodontic material lying around in the open?

If the answer to these questions is yes, that is a red flag. Take into consideration the cleanliness of the practice you choose. This is a reflection of how they will treat you during your treatment.


This last one is so important in our opinion. If you’re feeling uneasy, it will not matter how many qualifications this doctor has. A great orthodontic practice will prioritize helping you feel comfortable and confident.

It is important that you trust this team’s ability to deliver the orthodontic care you deserve. If you don’t feel you can trust them, it may be wise to consider another practice.
