How Our Virtual Appointments Work
COVID-19 has made life difficult for Americans in ways we never thought we would have to deal with. From the basics of grocery shopping to essentials like dental and healthcare needs, people have felt the stresses and strains of this pandemic in every aspect of life. The constant fear and stress of going out of the house for these basic needs has only grown as more and more people across our country have become infected with COVID-19. Here at Gruelle Dempsey Orthodontics, we know how important your dental needs are, and we want to work with you no matter the limitations. That is why we are proud to be offering virtual appointments for all new and existing clients so that you never have to go without your orthodontic care. Schedule your virtual appointment today or click here to learn more about how our elite orthodontic team can help you stay on track with your dental care needs.
Your virtual appointment will start like any other in-person appointment with you scheduling a time that works best for you. Given the flexible nature of technology, we have found that it is much easier for most people to find the time to fit in one of our virtual appointments. You don’t have to get dressed, drive anywhere, or even get out of bed to have one of these virtual appointments. You can easily make the most out of this quick appointment by gathering a few questions together beforehand so that you can quickly discuss the issues or concerns that you may be having with our clinical specialist. A few minutes of preparation beforehand can really make these virtual appointments much easier on both sides and help us eliminate options while we hone in on the root of the issue or your needs.
Once you have scheduled your appointment we will review your previous dental work and any orthodontic work that may be necessary. If need be, we will reach out to your other dental professionals to retrieve the needed documents, so make sure that you tell us any previous practices you have visited if you are a new patient(general or specialists). After we have gathered this initial data, our team will review your files and needs, to get a head start on your individual appointment.
During your appointment, one of our elite orthodontic specialists will walk you through a few quick questions to better understand any issues or concerns you may have. If this appointment is for a routine check-in, we will go over your normal needs, check-in with you to see how you are feeling with your treatments, and assess whether or not you need to come in for any additional in-person appointments.
No matter what your orthodontic needs may be, our virtual appointments are a great way for you to figure out the next steps and develop a plan with one of our elite orthodontic experts. Schedule your virtual appointment to talk with one of our specialists today.
