Is it Important to Get a Second Opinion in Orthodontics?

April 12, 2024

When you’re looking for an orthodontist for you or your child, how do you know which practice is right for you? Is it possible to “try out” an orthodontist before choosing one? 

Yes, you can—and we encourage you to do so! We offer complimentary consultations that include a thorough examination of your smile, so you can visit our office, get to know our team and doctors, and get a feel for our patient experience before you make your decision.

Why would I need a second opinion in orthodontics?

Getting a second opinion in your orthodontic treatment can help assure you that you’re making the best decision for you or your child! If you visit a practice and aren’t quite sure if the environment is the right fit for you, don’t hesitate to try out another practice. 

You want to feel 100% confident and comfortable in your decision to sign a contract with your orthodontist and begin a life-changing journey. You’ll be spending time with your orthodontist regularly, so it’s important that they’re friendly, professional, personable, and knowledgeable. 

Take note of how you feel in the office too! Is it a comfortable place to be? Is it clean and modern? Do they offer the type of treatment you’re looking for? You and your smile deserve the absolute best care possible, so don’t be afraid to set your standard!

At Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics, we provide complimentary first visits, with no cost, no risk and no obligation, because we’re confident that you’ll have an exceptional experience at either of our offices in Lake Mary or Longwood.

If you visited another orthodontist, and you’re interested in getting a second opinion and trying out another practice before making your decision, we encourage you to request your complimentary consultation with us. 

The Doctor You Choose Matters

Your orthodontist is the one who creates your smile, not your braces or Invisalign! The orthodontist behind your treatment plan matters.

When choosing your orthodontist, it’s important that you assess his or her qualifications. If the orthodontist is a member of the AAO (American Association of Orthodontists), this is a great indication that he or she has the experience, education and training you deserve. 

Try using the AAO orthodontist locator to find an AAO certified orthodontist near you!

Consider the orthodontist’s experience, certifications, and any previous training they’ve had too. How long has the orthodontist been practicing? Have they earned an orthodontic certification? Which professional memberships or affiliations are they a part of? 

Dr. Wiewiora is a member of the AAO, as well as five other professional dental associations and societies! She has been published in the Oral Health and Preventive Dentistry Journal and works as a member in Arnold Palmer Craniofacial Team, helping treat patients with cleft palate and cleft lip. 

Dr. Dunn has over 35 years of orthodontic experience! He is a member of the AAO, as well as four other distinguished dental associations. Dr. Dunn has delivered international lectures on invisible braces and TMJ treatment and has co-authored articles for major dental publications. 

Our practice has also been recognized by Invisalign® as being in the Top 1% of all Invisalign providers in the country! We are proud to be Diamond Plus Invisalign Providers.

When you choose us, you can rest assured that you’re in the best hands. We guarantee exceptional results every time. Take a look at some of our before-and-after transformations for a preview of the results you can expect from us! 

You can hear from our patients too! See what they have to say about our doctors and the patient experience at Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics. 

During your initial consultation, you’ll be able to get a braces quote or Invisalign quote. We’ll discuss your treatment costs, examine your condition and discuss our findings, present our treatment options to you, and begin your journey if you choose!

Some orthodontic conditions can be difficult to diagnose! That’s why it never hurts to get a second opinion in orthodontics. In fact, a Yale Medicine study showed that 21% of people who get a second opinion leave with a new diagnosis; and 66% have their original diagnosis redefined by their second opinion! 

We’re all about patient education, because we believe the best results are achieved when you’re properly informed! We’ll always take the time to explain everything to you so you leave our office feeling confident and comfortable with your treatment. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions! If you’re looking for a second opinion or searching for a top orthodontist, come meet us! Request your complimentary exam with us in Lake Mary or Longwood today.
