Office Visits

Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.

Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Every smile starts with an initial consultation!

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.

What happens after the initial consultation?

You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and Dr. Capozzi will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting our office about every four to eight weeks is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.

Coronavirus Update

A message from Dr. Carla Capozzi Orthodontics

Considering concern regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to share with you our commitment in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for both our patients and staff. Our priority at Dr. Carla Capozzi Orthodontics is to provide exceptional care and education to our patients. If you have traveled to an area that has a high incidence of the Coronavirus or suspect you have been exposed to someone with the virus within the last 14 days, we ask that you reschedule your original appointment date.

The following are suggested precautions:

  • If you are experiencing flu like symptoms (chills, fever, runny nose, cough) we ask that you not come to the office for your appointment.
  • Please do not bring sick family members or children to the office with you.
  • Stay at home when you are sick and contact your primary care physician to notify them if you are feeling any symptoms that may be linked to the Coronavirus such as respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or cough/sneeze into your inner arm if a tissue is not available.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Again, we encourage patients to reschedule their appointments if they are not feeling well for any reason. We will be happy to get you back on the schedule when you are feeling better.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty and we will continue to work at providing optimum care for our patients.
