Appointment Scheduling

We will schedule your next appointment at the end of your current appointment. The length in between each appointment depends on your treatment and recommended timeframe from the orthodontist. Appointments can range from every four to six weeks and generally last less than 30 minutes. If you ever need to change an appointment time, please call our office at 704-247-9150.

Do I still need to go to the dentist?

Dental care during your orthodontic treatment is key to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Continue to visit your general dentist every six months for routine care and professional teeth cleanings.
