Would you like to know if orthodontic treatment is right for you? Our Virtual Orthodontic Consultation can start the conversation for you! To begin, simply send us a few photos along with any questions you have regarding your smile. We will review your photos within 48 hours and provide you with our initial recommendations on orthodontic care for your smile.
Use your cell phone camera and a friend or family member to help you take a series of photographs similar to the samples shown below. Quick tip – using a plastic spoon to pull your cheeks to the side really helps with the side photos.
Then, click on the corresponding example images below to upload your photos. These photos will help us evaluate your smile. Don’t worry if you can’t take them all of the photos listed below, just do your best…we can always ask for more information if necessary. We look forward to seeing your smile soon!
We will review your photos and get back to you as soon as possible.
Email is a very popular and convenient way to communicate for a lot of people. In the latest modification to the HIPAA act, the federal government provided guidelines on email and HIPAA. The guidelines state that if a patient has been made aware of the risks of unencrypted email, and that same patient provides consent to receive health information via email, then a health entity may send that patient personal medical information via unencrypted email.
