Why Is My Consultation Appointment So Long?

July 25th, 2018

Thinking about braces, or maybe your general dentist recommended you see an Orthodontist for an evaluation and consultation. Don’t let the prospect of you or your child starting braces overwhelm you. Learning about all the steps in the orthodontic process will make it stress free, and it all begins with your complimentary consultation at Studebaker Orthodontics. There’s a lot to discuss at this first appointment and we are here to help. The orthodontic consultation is the first step toward achieving your very best smile.

The length of your consultation depends on a few things. The complexity of your case is a huge factor. There may be multiple phases or steps necessary in the treatment. The goal of your consultation is for you to learn more about our practice and your potential treatment plan, and for us to learn about you and your teeth. The consultation will usually take about 1 hour.

During your consultation we will perform the following steps.

  • Tour of our office
  • A Panorex X-ray
  • Photographs of your face and teeth
  • Review of your medical and dental history
  • Oral Exam
  • Treatment Planning, (explanation of treatment)
  • Estimate, (explanation of costs, insurance coverage and payment options)

During your consultation it is important to make sure all of your questions are answered about the proposed treatment plan.

Dr. Studebaker, a board certified orthodontist, will evaluate every patient and provide the treatment plan that best fits your needs. Having a great smile, with healthy teeth, gums and jaw is an investment that will last you the rest of your life. We provide orthodontics to children, teens and adults. We invite you to schedule your complimentary consultation with Studebaker Orthodontics at, 281-251-9229 today.

 

How Are You?

June 21st, 2018

How are you? It’s a simple question, just three little words. If we were to ask you, “How are you today?”, the majority of you would say, “I’m fine”. Our society has trained us to think that this is the right answer.  But when you think about it, this response has little meaning.

This is a very common question we are asked as you walk through our front doors at Studebaker Orthodontics. Just to shake things up a little bit, the next time someone asks you, “How are you?”, answer with something other than, “fine”.  This will open the dialogue for some real or interesting conversation.

According to “Dr. Google”, here are some common one word answers……….Thankful, Happy, Crazy, Fabulous, Blessed, Excited, Sleepy, Hopeful, Nervous, and there are many more.

We ask you that question, and we sincerely care and are concerned for you. We always have our listening ears on and are prepared to get to know you. We may even ask you, “What is the best part of your day so far?”. We know your answer will be, coming to see us at Studebaker Ortho.

So next time you’re in the office, let us know how you really are, and if you’re having a great day. We’re here and we’re listening!
