Welcome to OrthoCare Orthodontics

Our top priority is to help you achieve a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime. At OrthoCare Orthodontics, we are driven to provide you with exceptional orthodontic care in a friendly, comfortable, and professional environment. A great looking smile and healthy bite is vitally important no matter what age you are. Dr Kaplan and her dedicated staff are thoroughly committed to helping you attain a great result that is personalised to your individual needs.

Complimentary Initial Consultation

Your complementary initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet Dr Kaplan and address any orthodontic questions you might have. After an initial exam and discussion about you or your child's treatment needs, Dr Kaplan will recommend available treatment options, discuss approximately how long it will take, and estimate how much it will cost. At this time, our staff is also happy to discuss the various payment plan options we offer to best meet your financial needs. After your initial appointment, you will have all the information you need to make a decision about whether to proceed with treatment.

Records Appointment

If you decide to go ahead with treatment, complete diagnostic records will be taken in order to determine an optimal treatment plan. These records include a medical and dental history, detailed clinical examination, X-rays, photographs of the face and teeth, and study models of the teeth. This information allows Dr Kaplan to precisely evaluate each case, and customise a treatment plan to fulfil your specific needs. After this appointment, you will receive a detailed written report outlining the following:

  • Findings from the exam
  • Ideal treatment plan and goals
  • Approximate treatment duration
  • Cost of treatment and payment structure
  • Item numbers for health fund claims

Dr Kaplan and her friendly staff are always available to answer any further queries you may have about your report.

Scheduling Appointments

After receiving the report, you are now ready to start orthodontic treatment. Once your appliances (braces, Invisalign, etc.) have been placed, you will then see us for short (30 minute) appointments at regular intervals of between four to eight weeks.

Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask you to extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time.

It is very important that you continue to schedule visits to your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleaning and routine dental check-ups, even during your orthodontic treatment.

Contact us today to schedule your complimentary initial consultation with Dr. Kaplan and her friendly team at OrthoCare Orthodontics. We look forward to working with you!
