Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. 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.
Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient, and rewarding as possible. We’ll use the latest technology and offer a variety of treatment options to give you the customized, individual care that you deserve.
Every smile starts with a consultation
Your consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team as well as learn more about orthodontics, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your consultation, Dr. Maull will:
- Review your dental and medical history
- Perform an initial exam to determine if treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
What happens after the initial consultation?
If orthodontic treatment is right for you or your child, we will schedule a records appointment and an appointment to place the appliances. In many cases, we can schedule the records appointment on the same day as the initial consult for your convenience.
Visiting the orthodontist every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 20 and 40 minutes. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are scheduled around your busy schedule; so you will spend less time in the dental chair, and more time enjoying the things you love to do.
When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, please call our practice at (703) 556-9400. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist every four to six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
