Patient Services

Patient Services

Our office provides orthodontic treatment for children, adolescents, and adults (our youngest patient is 6, and our oldest patient is 80!). We use small stainless steel braces, ceramic aesthetic brackets, removable clear aligner appliances as well as metal and plastic retainer appliances. Our goal is to produce excellent orthodontic results, a comfortable bite relationship and a beautiful smile!

How to Start Orthodontic Care

Please call our office phone number to schedule a new patient examination appointment. There is no charge for this new patient exam, and it can be scheduled during any of our regular office hours. An orthodontic diagnosis with be performed, and treatment options will be discussed. The process of starting orthodontic treatment will be described. The cost of treatment will be determined, any insurance benefits will be investigated, and payment plans will be clearly explained. Orthodontic treatment is very approachable.

Progression of Treatment

Progression of Treatment

Following the initial placement of orthodontic appliances, adjustment appointments are scheduled every three to five weeks. At these appointments, our Orthodontic Assistants seat the patients, and as a preliminary procedure, remove some small parts of the appliances. Following this preparation, Dr. Meldrum comes in and performs all the actual orthodontic adjustments procedures for every patient, start to finish. The parents of the child patients are always welcome in the treatment rooms to observe everything we do. Many of the parents eventually become orthodontic patients themselves after they see the kind of results achieved with orthodontics.
