What is the Observation Deck Recall Club?
At Newell Orthodontics, we want to make sure that every child receives the best care at the right time. We are often asked "At what age should my child see an orthodontist?". Dr. Newell and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that all children be seen by an orthodontist at age 7 for their first orthodontic evaluation.
Although this may seem early, Dr. Newell is trained to identify subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present. By monitoring jaw growth and eruption at regular intervals in our Observation Deck Recall Club, Dr. Newell can spot problems as they develop and, if appropriate, may recommend treatment to prevent more serious problems from occuring. This early intervention often makes comprehensive treatment, at a later age, shorter and less complicated.
Are there any fees associated with the Observation Deck Recall Club?
We invite all of our younger patients to join our Observation Deck Recall Club and here is the best part...our Observation Deck Recall Club is FREE! Your child's initial orthodontic evaluation and all recall appointments are complimentary for you and fun for your child. Seeing your child regularly allows us to educate them on the importance of good oral hygiene, monitor their development and get them excited about the possibility of entering active orthodontic treatment that will help them achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. Once treatment is recommended, any applicable fees associated with that treatment will be thoroughly discussed at that time.
