ORTHODONTIC MYTHBUSTERS #1
MYTH: Orthodontists run behind schedule and keep you waiting for your appointment.
FACT: There can be orthodontic emergencies that change and slow the schedule. However, those should be few and far between.
OSL patients in Dover, DE can rely on us to see them at their appointment time IF
They arrive 5 mins before their appointment to brush their teeth, and then we’ll get started for their planned adjustment.
In fact, patients and parents frequently compliment us at OSL and appreciate our efforts to see them on time! #betteratthelake #teamosl
IF our patients cannot arrive on time, then we ask them to communicate this change as soon as possible so we can find an appointment option to accommodate them.
A recent study of orthodontic patients showed that those patients with good oral hygiene and shorter treatment times had better attendance at appointments than those who did not brush well and/or who had longer treatment plans.*
So -if you’re a good brusher, and you are ready to start your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®, then call Team OSL at (302)672-7776, doverorthodontics.com
