You and your orthodontist will likely be seeing quite a bit of each other while you’re wearing braces. Therefore, the time you spend making sure your orthodontist in Mullica Hill is right for you is well worthwhile. Here are some tips to help you decide with certainty.
Find Out if the Orthodontist is Licensed and Certified
Sounds pretty basic, but you should always make sure your orthodontist has the education and accreditation required to provide orthodontic treatment. Dr. Colalillo is educated and trained in the specialty of orthodontics and has been helping patients enjoy straight and healthy smiles for more than 20 years.
The Latest Technology in Orthodontics
Like the related field of dentistry, orthodontics is rapidly advancing and improving the services available to patients. A good orthodontist takes it upon himself or herself to keep up with the latest technology and orthodontic treatment methods. More often than not, the combination of up-to-date technology and treatments will provide you with the best smile results. Dr. Colalillo is proud that his practice is constantly staying abreast of the newest developments in orthodontic treatment.
Multiple Treatment Options
You also might want to know whether or not your orthodontist offers treatment systems other than traditional metal braces with brackets and wires. Not every smile needs full-on metal braces to be straightened. Dr. Colalillo also offers:
- Clarity Aesthetic Braces
Both of these systems can be used to treat a number of orthodontic concerns—overcrowding, uneven spacing, overbites, underbites and crossbites, for example—and they offer the advantage of being far less noticeable than traditional braces.
Flexible Payment Options
Let’s be honest—although orthodontic treatment is well worthwhile and often a necessity, it can also get expensive. Therefore, you need to make sure that your Mullica Hill orthodontist offers a few different means of payment. Dr. Colalillo and his staff are pleased to accept cash and personal checks, as well as Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. We will also work with your insurance carrier and fill out all claim forms to ensure that you receive the maximum allowable benefits for orthodontic care.
We are also happy to work with flexible spending plans if your employer offers one, and we also accept CareCredit, a healthcare credit card. Finally, family discounts are available as well!
