Want to practice Social Distancing?!?!
Send us your smile to get your FREE Virtual Consultation scheduled with us!
Roeder Orthodontics is now offering virtual consultations for Braces, Invisalign and all other Clear Aligners.
We understand that life can be busy with work, school, and extracurricular activities so we now offer a way to provide you with a quote and tentative treatment plan without you having to leave the comfort of your own home.
To get scheduled for a Free Virtual Consultation you will need to send us a series of 8 photos for Dr. Roeder to review and develop a treatment plan from.
Take a headshot facing the camera face on. Make sure your lips, cheeks, and chin is relaxed.
Take a headshot facing the camera with a big smile so that we can see your teeth.
Turn 90 degrees away from the camera looking straight ahead and relax your lips, cheeks, and chin.
Retract both cheeks, bite down so that your back molars touch, and be sure to get a straight-on shot of mostly your teeth.
Use a spoon to pull your left cheek out of the way, get a picture of your bite from your canine tooth to your far back molar.
Use a spoon to pull your right cheek out of the way, get a picture of your bite from your canine tooth to your far back molar.
Use the handles to pull the upper lip out of the way, tilt your head back, and try to get as many teeth as you can.
Last, use the handles to pull the lower lip out of the way, tilt your chin down, and try to get a picture of the top of your lower teeth.
Dr. Roeder will review the photos and reach out to you within 48 hours with a tentative treatment plan and estimate. The next step is to schedule a time for you to come in and start treatment. At your first appointment, we will take complimentary X-rays to solidify your treatment plan and begin treatment that same day.
