Finding the right orthodontist can be complicated if you have never been through it. Like all patients, you want peace of mind knowing that you selected the proper orthodontist for your unique oral healthcare needs. Orthodontic treatment has the potential to be a lengthy process, so it is crucial to find someone who not only makes you feel comfortable, but someone who you can trust.
The first step in finding the right orthodontic practice is asking for a recommendation from someone who has gone through the process. Whether that be a close friend, family member, neighbor, or co-worker. Chances are, someone in your circle will have a recommendation that they trust. The next step is to get online and do the research. Reading reviews is a great place to start. At Belvedere Family Dentistry we have over 100 Google reviews to help you make the right choice. We have included one example below of what you should look for.
“Brought my daughters here and they are absolutely the first dentist that took their time and explained what they were doing and also explained to the girl’s the importance of taking care of their teeth. Also very convenient with the orthodontist for my 13 yr old who will be getting braces, highly recommended.”
Reviews are a good way to see what patients liked and disliked about the services they received. Next, compare prices and find the best one that fits your needs and budget. Lastly, upon considering different orthodontists, you need to determine if your top orthodontists have completed the American Board of Orthodontics Specialty Certification exams. Choosing a board-certified orthodontist can assure you that you will receive the complete treatment and care you need. Here at Belvedere we have partnered with Burrow & Welchel Orthodontics to offer their services at our office. Dr. Jack Burrow, Dr. Sam Burrow, and Dr. Britney Welchel are all Board Certified Orthodontists and have been in Charlotte for over 30 years.
Once you have narrowed down your list and done your research, the next step is scheduling consultations. Most orthodontists will provide you with a free consultation for first-time patients. This will allow you to meet the orthodontist and their team. Scheduling a consultation will allow you to also get a good feel of their office environment. You can schedule your FREE consult today with Burrow & Welchel by calling (704) 334-7202 or by emailing us.
Before leaving the consultation it is important to ask questions. The more informed you are about your orthodontic needs, the easier it will be for you to choose the right orthodontist.
