Our greatest goal is to give you a healthy, straight, beautiful smile, while making the process friendly, comfortable and smooth. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice uses the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Our complimentary consultations offer the opportunity to meet Dr. Lenk and our team, learn more about orthodontics, and find out which treatment options best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam with X-rays to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help create a customized treatment plan to match your needs
- Discuss all financial information, insurance, and payment options
Our team is happy to answer any questions you have, and will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule a 30-40 minute appointment to gather additional information to confirm your treatment plan. Then you're ready for Dr. Lenk to place your new orthodontic appliances. This appointment generally takes one to two hours. Our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible and answer your questions.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.
We understand that “life happens.” If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you!
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist at least once every six months during your orthodontic treatment for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
