Top five questions to ask when choosing an orthodontist

When searching for an orthodontist for you or your child, it can become quite overwhelming. There are many choices of braces to choose from and it can also be daunting to pick the best orthodontist to visit. To help narrow it down, we have collated a list of top five questions that you should ask when choosing an orthodontist. One set of questions is for when choosing for adult orthodontics and the other for children; you will find some questions overlap, however there are certain aspects to consider for each group.

 

Top five questions to ask when choosing an orthodontist for adults

  • What is your experience as an orthodontist?
  • Do you have accreditations and training to use the braces you promote?
  • What are your service fees?
  • Do you recommend braces, or a different treatment? Why?
  • Are braces a necessity to straighten my teeth?

 

Top five questions to ask when choosing an orthodontist for your child/teen

  • What is your experience as an orthodontist?
  • Do you have accreditations and training to use the braces you promote?
  • Is my child the right age for braces?
  • What are the advantages of early treatment?
  • How long will treatment last?

It is important to question the process when deciding who to visit on an ongoing basis for orthodontic treatment. You want to ensure that you are receiving the best information and treatment possible, as braces are a long term investment both physically and financially. Any orthodontist you visit should be willing to answer these questions for you; if they do not, that should answer your main question for you – ‘Are they the right orthodontist for you?’
