Your First Visit

Our goal is to create a healthy bite and a straight, beautiful smile that will give you the confidence to share your smile as you enjoy the life-long advantages of your orthodontic treatment. A healthy bite and a great smile can help unleash your true personal potential. 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. The entire Advantage Orthodontics Team will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient, and rewarding as possible. We’ll use the latest techniques including a variety of safe and gentle treatment options, to give you the customized, individual care that you deserve.

What can you expect?
Every smile starts with a complimentary consultation where you will have the opportunity to meet our orthodontist, Dr. Ford, meet the team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out whether you or your child would benefit from orthodontic treatment .

During your complimentary consultation, the doctor will:

Review your dental and medical history forms.
Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary.
Determine if treatment is indicated at this time or if we should continue to observe your child as they develop.
Help create a customized treatment plan for you
Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and affordable payment options.
During your complimentary consultation, we will explain everything that you will need to know about your orthodontic treatment, so that you can choose what's best for you – no strings attached.

If you'd like to schedule a complimentary consultation with Advantage Orthodontics, please email us at smiles@advantageorthodontics.com or call 989-631-9860.

What happens after the initial consultation?
If treatment is indicated, and you decide to proceed, we will schedule the visits with Dr. Ford that are necessary to get you started on your way toward your new smile! If we feel it is best to continue to monitor growth and development, we'll set up a visit for re-evaluation. We always want to plan treatment at the time when it will be most effective and take the least amount of time.
