At the end of this book, you’ll know:

  • How to evaluate orthodontists and find the right one for your family.

    Orthodontics is a big investment of time and money, so it’s important to work with the right orthodontist. But how do you find the right one? What should you look for, and what questions should you ask? Should you let your family dentist provide orthodontic treatment? Dr. Verbic guides you through the process of selecting the right orthodontist for your family’s needs.

  • Common causes of orthodontic treatment – and what they mean for treatment.

    Crowded teeth, misaligned bites, and more. Dr. Verbic discusses some of the most common problems that bring people to the orthodontist in the first place. You’ll understand which treatment options are available and what to expect from them. You’ll also understand why a visit to the orthodontist at age 7 is recommended (and why 7 isn’t too young).

  • How to pay for orthodontic treatment.

    Many people shy away from seeking advice from an orthodontist because they assume that braces or Invisalign will simply be too expensive. Dr. Verbic devotes two chapters to explaining why this isn’t so, and looks at using HSAs, FSAs, orthodontic insurance, financing, and other resources to cover treatment so you can be assured that the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted is within reach.

Creating Beautiful Confident Smiles dispels myths about orthodontic treatment and provides a practical, easy-to-follow guide to getting great orthodontic care for you and your family.
