Why You Should Do a Virtual Consult with an Orthodontist

The world of orthodontics continues to evolve, and not only in terms of new treatment options like Invisalign. Due to advances in technology, getting started with orthodontic treatment is easier than ever. Here at Smith Orthodontics, you can now start your journey towards straighter teeth by doing a virtual consult. 

How Do Virtual Consults Work?

You can get a quote for your orthodontic treatment simply by using our new digital tool powered by DigitalSmylz. All you have to do is take a few photos of your teeth and do a quick video chat. Once your photos are received, we can review them, determine the best treatment options for you, and give you an estimate of what it will cost. All of this is completely free and you have no obligation to start treatment until you’re ready to begin.

Why Do a Virtual Consult?

Perhaps you have been thinking about getting braces or Invisalign for some time but haven’t looked into it too seriously due to concerns about cost. Well, with a virtual consult you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home. You can just send in some images to our office and our team will get back to you with an estimate on how much your treatment will be and what option would be best for you.

You also have nothing to worry about when it comes to confidentiality. We take HIPAA privacy laws very seriously and make sure to protect each patient’s privacy. The process we use with DigitalSmylz is totally HIPAA compliant, keeping your information safe and secure.

Getting Started With Treatment

Having a virtual consult before you get started with orthodontic treatment is also a good way to get introduced to our team before you visit our office. We understand there are plenty of reasons patients might be apprehensive about going to visit an orthodontic office for the first, so starting the conversation with a video chat is a great way to break the ice.

Once you’ve gotten to know us a little bit and have a better idea about the price of your treatment, you can schedule an in-person consultation to get started. While we love what technology allows us to do in terms of making the consultation process easier, we believe there’s no replacement for the expertise and careful in-person supervision of a licensed orthodontist.
