At Smile Design Orthodontics our practice is limited to orthodontic treatment which is provided by our orthodontists who are registered specialist orthodontists. Throughout your orthodontic treatment we maintain a close professional relationship with your general Dentist who will continue to provide your routine dental treatment such as fillings, preventive treatments or specific dental procedures that your Dentist considers necessary. It is important that correction of dento-facial problems is comprehensively achieved for you through a team, or “multi-disciplinary” collaboration between your general Dentist, Orthodontist and sometimes other dental specialists.
We recommend that you see your Dentist for regular check-ups every six months throughout your orthodontic treatment and sometimes every three months if there are oral hygiene problems that require more frequent management. We specifically encourage you to maintain your dental check-ups with your Dentist through our Dental Care Partnership Program which is put in place when you commence orthodontic treatment.
