While children should see us for an initial orthodontic assessment by age 7, did you know the habits that lead to good orthodontic health start in infancy? Our orthodontists in BC and Alberta explain how toothbrushing, thumbsucking and jaw development can influence how much orthodontic intervention will be needed later as a child grows.
All Referrals Welcome
We know you have a choice when referring your patient to an orthodontist. We thank you for considering myORTHODONTIST.
Whether your patient is a child for who can benefit from early intervention, a teen who needs braces or Invisalign or an adult who may having airway issues or simply wants a straighter smile, our team is committed to continuing the quality of care you've started.
We want you to know that we take the matter of your trust as our responsibility.
Educational Support for Dental & Health Professionals
In addition to providing orthodontic services for patients, we are committed to working with and supporting dental and health professionals to increase their understanding of the impact that early intervention can have on the lives and health of growing children.
Dr. Dhol is available to lead educational presentations about what to look for in young patients and what can be done with Phase 1 Treatment to reduce or prevent the need for invasive orthodontic treatment later in life.
If you are interested, please contact us and we will be in touch.
With our 2-Phase Approach, we work to support the direction of the Canadian Association of Orthodontists which recommends that every child visit an orthodontist before age 7 for an initial assessment.
