Customized Treatment Plan
During your free consultation Dr. Seth will use the information gathered during the exam, photos, and x-rays to diagnose and clearly explain what needs to be corrected. Dr. Seth will work with you to develop a treatment plan customized to your specific needs and your own personal goals or preferences.
After carefully reviewing the state of your oral health, Dr. Seth will examine all records and exam notes provided by your general dentist as he designs your individualized treatment plan with a treatment coordinator. During this important initial step, the doctor will carefully weigh all relevant information to create a customized treatment plan that will result in a great-looking, perfectly functioning smile.
Dr. Seth will also coordinate with your general dentist and any other necessary specialists to confirm your oral health can handle the required treatment. Successful collaboration with all of a patient's oral health care providers ranks as a vital step in ensuring the best treatment experience possible.
At Senestraro Family Orthodontics we strongly believe in getting to know our patient's goals for their smile and dental health, respecting our patient's choices on how they want to achieve those goals. Although Dr. Seth will recommend an ideal treatment plan for your particular case, we pride ourselves in being flexible in our treatment options to make sure our patient’s goals are met, after all, they are your teeth! Our team will use our expertise to make sure you can make an informed decision.
Although most treatment plans are completed during your initial consultation more complex cases will take more time and coordination to develop your ideal plan. Dr. Seth will often discuss these cases in-depth with your dentist and other health care providers as needed in order to ensure an ideal plan for you or your child. In some cases, this requires a follow-up discussion before getting started on treatment with braces or Invisalign®.
