Our greatest goal at the office of Melvin H. Pearson DDS, PC is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with a free initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out what treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam to determine if treatment is necessary and if so, schedule diagnostic records. These records include facial and intraoral photos, as well as required X-rays.
Following our initial consultation and diagnostic records we will have a treatment consultation where we will:
- Discuss a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information including insurance options and payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine what treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice at 718-948-5100 to schedule your initial consultation for orthodontic care in Staten Island, New York.
What happens after the treatment consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment when your orthodontist may place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time, our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Pearson and his team will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.
We understand that life happens. If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
