Your Journey to a Confident Smile
Welcome to Wheeler Orthodontics! If you’re reading this, you might be considering orthodontic treatment and feeling a bit nervous about the entire process. I understand those feelings all too well. As someone who’s been through the journey with Dr. Wheeler and the team, I’m here to walk you through what to expect and reassure you that this journey is not just about straightening your teeth — it’s about regaining your confidence and comfort in your smile, something you truly deserve.
Step 1: The New Patient Evaluation
Your journey at Wheeler Orthodontics begins with what we like to call the new patient evaluation. This is far more than a simple consultation; it’s a comprehensive assessment where Dr. Wheeler personally examines your teeth to determine your orthodontic needs. I remember my first visit — I was welcomed by a family-oriented team that prides itself on punctuality and efficiency. You’ll experience the same warm, professional environment that immediately puts you at ease.
During this evaluation, Dr. Wheeler will give you an estimate of what your treatment might involve. This is a great opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you have, especially if you’re feeling unsure about the value of orthodontic treatment. Remember, this is a judgment-free zone, and we’re here to ensure you feel informed and comfortable with every step.
Step 2: The Records Appointment
If you decide to proceed with treatment, the next step is the records appointment. This is where we gather detailed information about your teeth and mouth, including X-rays, impressions, and scans. These records are crucial for Dr. Wheeler to craft a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
There’s a fee of $225 for this appointment, but here’s the reassuring part: if you go ahead with the treatment, this amount is deducted from your overall treatment cost. This appointment is a testament to your commitment to your smile, and we value that deeply.
Step 3: Starting Treatment with Clear Aligners
Once your records are in, and Dr. Wheeler has developed your treatment plan, you’re all set to start your transformation. If clear aligners are your chosen path, know that each set is custom-designed to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. I remember feeling a mix of excitement and nervousness when I started with my aligners. But trust me, seeing the subtle changes in your smile over time is incredibly rewarding.
Dr. Wheeler and our team will guide you through every step, ensuring you understand how to use and care for your aligners. We believe in transparent communication, so any concerns about costs or treatment processes are always welcomed. Our goal is to make this journey as comfortable and stress-free as possible for you.
