Clear, open communication is an essential part of the orthodontic process. I want patients to feel comfortable talking with me and our staff, along with asking questions. They know we’ll always be honest and non-judgmental in response.
Whenever we’re about to start a new procedure, I explain what we’ll be doing and give my patient a play-by-play description as we proceed. I also update patients and their parents about what we’ve accomplished during a visit and how treatment is progressing.
I’ve been practicing orthodontics since 1976. Wow ... that’s more than 40 years! That long, really? I must be having a good time!
