Did you know that we offer virtual consultations? Using SmileSnap, we can review your smile and recommend a treatment option that is right for you, all while offering the same great care you are used to! With virtual consultations, there is no need to take time off of work or school, find a babysitter, or deal with traffic in order to meet with your orthodontist.
This program is convenient for both you and our office. Plus, all photos are completely secure, to provide you with the patient privacy you deserve.
How to Take Your Photos
Check out the video below to learn how to take clear, beautiful photos of your teeth from the angles that best help us to assess your smile. You will need to take five different photos of your smile to help us prepare the best treatment plan for your unique orthodontic goals.
Some tips to help you capture the best pictures possible include:
- Use a smartphone to take your pictures.
- Have a friend take the photos (although selfies work, too).
- Use a flash when taking photos, or make sure you are in an area with good lighting.
- Capture your mouth only. Make sure you are close enough to your mouth to get a clear shot.
SmileSnap is both convenient and super easy to use! Plus, it’s endorsed by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), so you can feel confident in using it.
What Are the Next Steps?
The path towards your new smile begins after you send in the five photos of your teeth! There then four simple steps to achieve your perfect smile. These include:
Our team will review the pictures that you sent us, and get back to you with our treatment recommendations within three business days.
Based on Dr. Joffre’s assessment of the photos you provided to us, we will recommend a treatment that will work for you, as well as an estimate on treatment length and costs.
If you choose to proceed with the recommended treatment, we can schedule an in-person appointment at a time that works for you. We understand that you have a busy schedule, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
At your initial appointment, we will take X-rays, photos, and scans of your teeth. You will also have the opportunity to discuss and settle on your treatment plans with Dr. Joffre. Please, do not hesitate to ask any questions that you may have during this time. Our team wants you to feel informed about your decision, as well as excited about your new smile!
