Getting The Most From Your Orthodontic Visits
AS ONE OF OUR VALUED PATIENTS AND FRIENDS, you’ve probably never considered the following question, “What can I do to make my visits to the orthodontist as productive and effective as possible?” At first, it may sound like a silly question. You’ve probably thought, as a patient, that your job was pretty much to show up and open wide! But to really get more from our visits together, here are a few suggestions for taking more initiative.
Use Our Social Media Platform To Connect With Us
We are a “one-to-one business”. So, even though there are hundreds of millions of people (and lots of businesses) using social media, WE’RE there to better facilitate our personal one-on-one relationships with you. That means we’re interested in staying connected.
One way to stay connected is to be sure you’ve Liked our Facebook page! We enjoy interacting with you there. And as you know, you can comment there or leave us a private message, even after your treatment is complete.
We love visiting with you about any aspect of your oral health AND your orthodontic treatment. We understand that sometimes it’s human nature to be a little shy about asking questions… But we encourage you to ask us, whether it’s during your in-practice visit, on the phone, or through social media. Even if it’s something we’ve talked about before, we want to make sure that you’re clear about all aspects of your treatment. Here are some examples of questions you may want to ask, and questions we’d love to answer:
- How can I deal with any pain or headaches that happen as a result of my orthodontics?
- Which foods really have to be avoided?
- How do I care for my orthodontics at home?
Plan Sufficient Time For Your Next Visit
We understand that life is busy! And, you probably feel like you have many, many things to do other than hang out at our practice! That’s OK… We don’t feel bad. However, be sure to allow ample time for your appointments just so you don’t feel rushed and we’re able to answer all your questions.
Spend A Little Bit Of Time Learning More About Your Oral Health
We try to provide you with useful and relevant information about your dental health, comfort, and appearance through our blog posts. Take a few minutes each month to explore some of the topics we publish. Also, we know that many of our patients may not even realize the scope of the services we offer. Thanks, in advance, for getting to know more about how we can serve you.
Thanks For The Trust You Place In Us
We can’t say it enough… Thank you. Thanks for being our valued friends and patients. And thanks for your kind referrals of coworkers, extended family members and friends. We appreciate it!
