  • Should You Get an Orthodontist Second Opinion?

    February 25, 2022

    When you’re looking for an orthodontist for you or your child, how do you know which practice is right for you? Is it possible to “try out” an orthodontist before choosing one?

    Yes, you can—and we encourage you to do so! We offer complimentary orthodontic exams that include a thorough examination of your smile, so you can visit our office, get to know our team and doctors, and get a feel for our patient experience before you make your decision.

    Why would I need a second opinion in orthodontics?

    Getting a second opinion in your orthodontic treatment can help assure you that you’re making the best decision for you or your child! If you visit a practice and aren’t quite sure if the environment is the right fit for you, don’t hesitate to try out another practice. 

    You want to feel 100% confident and comfortable in your decision to sign a contract with your orthodontist and begin a life-changing journey. You’ll be spending time with your orthodontist regularly, so it’s important that they’re friendly, professional, personable, and knowledgeable. 

    Take note of how you feel in the office too! Is it a comfortable place to be? Is it clean and modern? Do they offer the type of treatment you’re looking for? You and your smile deserve the absolute best care possible, so don’t be afraid to set your standard!

    At Just For Grins Orthodontics, we provide free first visits, with no cost, no risk and no obligation, because we’re confident that you’ll have an exceptional experience at either of our offices in Montgomery, Millbrook or Wetumpka.

    If you visited another orthodontist, and you’re interested in getting a second opinion and trying out another practice before making your decision, we encourage you to request your complimentary consultation with us. 

    The Doctor You Choose Matters

    Your orthodontist is the one who creates your smile, not your braces or Invisalign! The orthodontist behind your treatment plan matters.

    When choosing your orthodontist, it’s important that you assess his or her qualifications. If the orthodontist is a member of the AAO (American Association of Orthodontists), this is a great indication that he or she has the experience, education and training you deserve. 

    Try using the AAO orthodontist locator to find an AAO certified orthodontist near you!

    Consider the orthodontist’s experience, certifications, and any previous training they’ve had too. How long has the orthodontist been practicing? Have they earned an orthodontic certification? Which professional memberships or affiliations are they a part of? 

    Dr. Dunn is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and AAO, as well as their respective Alabama chapters! She has been transforming grins and helping improve dental health in her Alabama communities since 1990. 

    Dr. Schreiber is also a member of the ADA and AAO, as well the Alabama Second District Dental Association. He teamed up with Dr. Dunn back in 2008 and has been crafting healthy grins in Alabama ever since!

    Our practice has also been recognized by Invisalign® with a distinguished Invisalign status! We are proud to be Platinum Invisalign Providers.

    When you choose us, you can rest assured that you’re in the best hands. We guarantee exceptional results every time. Take a look at some of our before-and-after transformations for a preview of the results you can expect from us! 

    You can hear from our patients too! See what they have to say about our doctors and the patient experience at Just For Grins Orthodontics. 

    During your initial consultation, you’ll be able to get a braces quote or Invisalign quote. We’ll discuss your treatment costs, examine your condition and discuss our findings, present our treatment options to you, and begin your journey if you choose!

    Get A Free Second Opinion for Ortho Treatment with Us!

    Some orthodontic conditions can be difficult to diagnose! That’s why it never hurts to get a second opinion in orthodontics. In fact, a Yale Medicine study showed that 21% of people who get a second opinion leave with a new diagnosis; and 66% have their original diagnosis redefined by their second opinion! 

    At your first visit, we’ll tell you everything you need to know to make the best decision on your orthodontic treatment options! We’ll always take the time to explain everything to you so you leave our office feeling confident and comfortable with your treatment.

    We provide a number of different types of braces, including traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces and Invisalign® for teens and adults!

    If you’re looking for a second opinion or searching for a top orthodontist in Alabama, come meet us! Request a complimentary exam for you or your child in Montgomery, Millbrook or Wetumpka, AL today. Or get started from home with a free virtual smile assessment using your mobile device!
