As part of Dr. Hohl’s commitment to provide the utmost in patient convenience and comfort, her team operates a scheduling system that eliminates long waits and ensures that patients are seen on time. Technological advancements in orthodontics continue to shorten treatment time and result in fewer visits.
The following list details how much time should be set-aside for future appointments if orthodontics treatment is necessary:
- Records/Consultation-30-60 minutes
- Progress check/Adjustments-15-30 minutes
- Removal or placing of braces-1.5 hours
- Retainer/Headgear checks-15-30 minutes
A good rule of thumb is to set aside 15-30 minutes every 4-6 weeks for your appointment. To accommodate as many families as possible, long appointments are scheduled during school and work hours, shorter appointments are scheduled in the early morning and late afternoon.
