We hear it all the time. Parents say they are waiting for a dentist referral before they schedule an appointment in our office for their child. They have more than enough to worry about.

Our reaction is always this: “You can bring them in to see us anytime!”

At Sawyer Creek Orthodontics, we do not require a dentist referral to make an appointment. Simply call our office for an appointment.

Why we want to see them, even without a referral

It never hurts to be proactive when it comes to your child’s health.  If there is something that is concerning you about your child’s smile, give us a call!

We like to see children for an initial orthodontic consultation by age 7. Having your child come in early can allow our doctors to spot potential issues that may require interceptive treatment. When issues are caught early on, it can reduce the need for more complicated treatment in the future.

What to expect at the first visit

During the complimentary consultation, we take records, including photos and x-rays. One of our wonderful doctors, Dr. Maslowski or Dr. Michel, also perform an exam and determine what treatment plan will be best for your child’s smile as they develop and grow.

If they don’t need any treatment at that time, we put your child on our recall program where we continue to monitor them as they grow. This observation periodis wonderful for getting your child acquainted with our office and staff. That way, if they do need treatment in the future, they will already be comfortable, and it won’t be a scary experience.
