What to Consider When Choosing an Orthodontist

If you have always dreamed of straighter teeth or a more confident smile, your first step towards accomplishing that dream will be choosing an orthodontist. How do you know which orthodontist will be the best fit for you?

With many options out there, we have put together a few things to consider before choosing your orthodontist office.

Read the Reviews

Reading online reviews may be the quickest way to assess an orthodontist office. Reviews will usually be candid and honest, giving you a feel for what other patients thought of their experience.

Keep in mind, however, online reviews aren’t perfect. Statistically, people are more likely to review a negative experience than a positive. Also, when someone has a bad experience, they sometimes exaggerate the details of their visit. Use your best judgement when reading.

Enrolling the reviews of your social media friends is another quick way to solicit honest feedback from people that you trust.  

Education and Experience

It’s hard to get a feel for an office without going in for a consultation. Don’t hesitate to schedule a few consultations to be sure you find the right orthodontist for yourself and your family. When you meet a new orthodontist, make sure to ask about their education, credentials, and years of experience.

At Cosmo Ortho, Dr. Bonvino has been transforming smiles since 1994 when she completed her residency in clinical orthodontics and earned her masters degree.

Location and Hours

Location is very important when it comes to an orthodontist office. Finding an office that is convenient from home or work will be a life saver.  Consider their hours of operation as well, if your life offers little flexibility, you’ll want to make sure the office is open at a time that works for you.
