The goal of SFO is to give you a confident and healthy smile that you have always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we listen carefully to your needs and concerns. Our dedicated team will work with you at every step of the way to ensure that your orthodontic care is the very best and exceeds your expectations. Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art technology and progressive philosophies to offer you varied treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you and your family so deserve.
At your initial consultation you will meet our SFO team, receive a thorough clinical exam and find out if orthodontic treatment is required. During your initial consultation, we will:
Review your dental and medical history
Provide a detailed oral exam
Discuss any concerns you or your dentist may have
Discuss treatment options and customize a treatment plan that best suit your needs
Discuss treatment cost estimate, insurance options and payment plans
We will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment.
When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, please contact our practice. We are looking forward to working with you!
At SFO, we value your time and understand the importance of minimizing time missed at school or work. Please review the following to plan your appointments accordingly. Please keep in mind that occasionally some appointments might run longer.
Initial Bonding: the doctor will place orthodontic appliance and review care instructions; 60 minutes
