How To Find The Right Orthodontist For Your Family

Right Orthodontist For Your Family

In the past, if you needed orthodontic treatment you would simply get a referral from your general dentist. But today, with advanced orthodontic options, there’s a much wider range of potential orthodontists. This can make it difficult to narrow down your options and choose the best orthodontist for your unique situation.

Choosing An Orthodontist

The first place to start is still with your general dentist. He or she probably works with many different orthodontic offices, and will be able to recommend the best one for the unique treatment you need. You can also gain valuable recommendations from family, friends, neighbors, or parents’ associations.

Asking The Right Questions


Once you’ve made a consultation with the orthodontist that you think would be best for your family, there are a few questions you will want to ask before committing to treatment.

Some things to know before selecting your orthodontist include:

  • Office location – make sure the office is close to work, school, or home
  • Variety of treatment options
  • Technology and equipment used in the office
  • Treatment costs and/or payment plans
  • Insurance plans accepted
  • Level of experience of the orthodontist
  • Friendliness of the dentist and staff

We hope you’ll consider Lockett Orthodontics for your orthodontic needs!
