We know visiting the orthodontist can be a little intimidating at first, but we aim to make your time at Schanilec & Trammell Orthodontics a great experience every single appointment. We are here to make you feel comfortable and at home while giving you the striking, beautiful, confident smile you’ve always wanted.
As part of our value promise, we always offer free initial exams for anyone considering orthodontic treatment. During these appointments, we will:
- Review your medical and dental history
- Take x-rays
- Perform a complete oral assessment
- Explain your diagnosis
- Lay out your treatment options
- Discuss your financial choices.
Along with spending time with you to ensure you understand everything we discuss during your appointment, we will provide you with an easy-to-understand packet of information to take home as you consider your orthodontic treatment plan options.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children visit us for their first appointment by age seven. Most children won’t begin treatment until they’re much older, but these appointments are important because catching certain orthodontic problems at a young age is vital to successful treatment. After this initial evaluation, we will continue seeing your child free of charge for routine exams until it’s time to begin treatment. This gives Dr. Trammell and Dr. Schanilec the opportunity to time treatment perfectly for the individual while giving the patient a chance to become comfortable with the office prior to treatment beginning.
We strive to make scheduling appointments at our orthodontics office in Albany and Corvallis clinics as simple as possible. You can set up your next office visits by requesting an appointment online, emailing us or calling the Schanilec & Trammell Orthodontics location nearest you.
