Why You Should Book a Virtual Consultation at Innovative Orthodontic Centers

By April 20, 2020 No Comments

As we’re sure you know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to temporarily switch our in-office visits to virtual visits except for emergency appointments. It’s important to do our part to help flatten the curve and keep our patients, team and community healthy. However, where we really shine at Innovative Orthodontic Centers is in using the latest technology to benefit our patients. So, we’ve decided to put our commitment to being on the leading edge to work, which is why we’re here for you virtually!

If you’re a current patient and you have concerns or you just want to make sure your treatment is on track, you can schedule a virtual visit. You’ll enter your information and share some smile selfies with us. Dr. Ibrahim or Dr. Gin will evaluate your details and set up a time to connect if you need it.  

Now, what about new patients who have been considering starting treatment? Does it have to wait until we’re no longer social distancing? Nope. We’ve got you covered too with virtual consultations. Now that we all have a little extra time at home on our hands, it’s the perfect time to cross this off your to-do list. Here are some of the reasons why you should have a virtual consultation with a Shorewood or Naperville orthodontist:

It Encourages Social Distancing

We love meeting our patients face to face and getting to know them. However, at this time, social distancing is extremely important. With a virtual consultation, everything is done remotely and there’s no physical contact. You don’t even have to get changed out of your pajamas if you don’t want to! We’ll complete some of the steps in your treatment process and then when the situation stabilizes, we’ll schedule you to come in to our office.

It’s Convenient

You don’t have to get ready or gather up the kids and drive to the office. You can do a virtual consultation from anywhere. It doesn’t get more convenient than that.

It’s Simple

We designed our virtual consultation feature to be super streamlined and user-friendly. All you have to do is fill in some information about yourself and take a few pictures of your smile. Dr. Ibrahim or Dr. Gin will review your details and then we’ll reach out to you via email, text, phone or even Skype.

You’ll Get Important Information 

Once Dr. Ibrahim or Dr. Gin evaluates your photos and goes over your information, they’ll create a customized treatment plan just for you or your child. We’ll connect with you to talk about your treatment options, how long your treatment will likely last, what the cost of braces or Invisalign will be and our payment options. You’ll have all of the information you need to feel confident about moving forward.

Start Your Smile Journey

Every new smile starts with a consultation. By completing one virtually, we can finish up a number of tasks before you come in to the office to have your Invisalign aligners designed or to have your braces bonded to your teeth. This saves you time. If you have insurance, you can provide us with your information. This will also allow us to estimate your coverage and get started on the paperwork for you!

It’s Free and You Don’t Need a Referral

While we always very much welcome and appreciate referrals from dentists, you don’t need one to schedule a consultation. It just gives you an opportunity to learn about your treatment options. It’s free and there is absolutely no obligation. If you do decide you’re ready to perfect your smile with us, we’ll schedule you for a visit as soon as our offices reopen.

We hope you’re hanging in there and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon! If you’re ready to find out how we can give you your dream smile with braces or Invisalign in Shorewood or Naperville, book a virtual consultation today!
