Many people will be surprised to learn that they do not need a referral to see an orthodontist from another doctor. Unlike other scenarios in the healthcare field, most dental insurances do not require a referral in order for them to cover a portion of you or your child’s orthodontic treatment. At Cardinal Orthodontics it’s as simple as picking up the phone (or going to our website) to schedule a free consultation for braces or Invisalign.
With or without a referral to see an orthodontist, a child should be seen for an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7 according to the American Association of Orthodontists. Examining young children before all permanent teeth have erupted may enable an orthodontist to correct problems that would be more difficult and costly if addressed at a later time.
Straightening your teeth is an investment that should last a lifetime. That’s why it is so important for you to research and choose an office who will put your needs and smile goals first. The effort you put into finding the right doctor will pay off in the long run.
Although you do not need a referral to see an orthodontist, we promise to work closely with your general dentist to make sure they are kept up-to-date on your treatment plan at Cardinal Orthodontics. Our goal is to make sure you have a healthy, beautiful smile you can show everywhere you go once completing treatment with our practice!
