If you or your child needs orthodontic appliances such as metal braces, ceramic lingual braces, or Invisalign, you may be looking for recommendations of Canberra orthodontists. Although there is no shortage of orthodontists in Canberra City, only a few of these clinics offer affordable and reliable services. In this article, we will be giving tips on how to pick the best orthodontists in Canberra.
Make a shortlist
Create a list of Canberra orthodontist recommendations from family and friends. First-hand reviews from people you know are unbiased, hence giving you the opportunity to narrow down choices to best orthodontists with active practice in Canberra.
You may check out the Australian Society of Orthodontists and verify the status of orthodontists on your list.
Besides checking out Australian Society of Orthodontists, it’s also best if you perform your own research. When you need braces for instance, you cannot go to a general dentist but to an orthodontic specialist to ensure the best care and results. A general dentist simply does not have the training, skills, and license to install appliances such as braces and Invisalign for their patients. Some unscrupulous practitioners will offer orthodontic services at affordable prices. Although tempting, it is best to avoid them as you may not get the teeth straightening results that you seek.
Check out their websites
Another aspect to research is to check out the websites of orthodontic clinics near you. Once you have created a shortlist, it’s best to check out their services, rates, or packages. Schedule an appointment to have an actual feel of the clinic as well as to interact with the orthodontist. Don’t worry about paying, as most initial consultations are free of charge. It is only through an in-person visit that you can decide whether the environment, customer service, skills and knowledge of an orthodontist meet or exceed your needs.
