Your Smile

Whether you are on a job interview or a first date, your smile is the first thing others notice about you. Smiling increases positive emotions and is contagious. It helps lift the mood of others around you and has also been shown to have health benefits. Research has shown that when you smile at someone it may boost your immune system, reduce stress, and lower blood pressure.

Dr. Campbell and her team are here to guide your child through the process of creating a beautiful, healthy smile. If you have any questions during your orthodontic experience, please feel free to call us at (239) 260-2100.

Your First Visit

We are always excited to welcome a new patient to our office. We pride ourselves in getting to know each patient well and we will begin that process during your initial visit. Your first appointment will consist of a thorough examination of the child and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 40-minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records. The records include X-rays, photos and impressions for study models and are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan. This additional appointment will last approximately 30 minutes.

uring the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions:

- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?

- Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?

- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?

- Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?

- How long will treatment take?

- How much will it cost?

- What are my payment options?

- While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

Please assist us by providing the following, if available:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.
  • Your dental insurance card if you have orthodontic coverage.
