Tips for Finding the Right Invisalign Doctor

Posted By Jakes lessor     Mar 4    


Finding the right site to treat your teeth can be tricky, especially if you don’t know what questions to ask or where to look. You want someone who’s knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy—someone who really cares about your treatment results. Luckily, there are sites that specialize in helping you find the right invisalign doctor in your area; here are some tips on how to make that happen.


Ask your dentist

If you’re considering getting invisalign braces, your first step should be to ask your dentist or orthodontist if they offer them. Orthodontists are often more expensive than dentists and not all insurance plans cover orthodontic work. To make sure you’re making an informed decision, talk to both professionals about costs, treatment time frames and whether or not they recommend invisalign braces over traditional metal braces. Remember that while having a good dental foundation is important—you don’t have to have perfect teeth in order to wear invisalign trays.



Ask your friends

Word of mouth is a powerful tool when it comes to finding out about doctors. If you know someone who has had great results with an Invisalign doctor, that’s a good place to start. From there, ask around and make sure you get references from multiple friends or coworkers before making your final decision. Looking on sites like Yelp can also help—and they can give you more information than just whether or not they liked their dentist!


Google it

The internet is one of your best friends when it comes to finding a good doctor. If you’re just starting out, start by searching Google with terms like invisalign dentist near me or invisalign reviews. You can also simply search Google Maps for specific locations—for example, you could search for Dr. Smith Chicago and then use filters on Google Maps to narrow down your options (more on that in a minute). Whatever tactic you choose, don’t forget to look at review sites like Yelp and ZocDoc to learn more about individual doctors before making an appointment.


Ask your dental insurance company

Most insurance companies will refer you to an in-network provider. If your dental insurance plan doesn’t list a provider in your area, call your state dental association or check out resources like local networking groups. They might be able to point you toward a local dentist who specializes in Invisalign. You can also call customer service at Align Technology and ask them to provide you with names of providers near you—you could even visit their website and fill out their Find-A-Pro form, but that might take longer than just picking up the phone. When asking, specify that you’re looking for an Invisalign practitioner.


Consider a second opinion

Before committing to Invisalign, it’s a good idea to consult with another dentist. Do you trust your doctor? That’s an important question. (Always get a second opinion if you don’t trust him or her.) If you already have an orthodontist and you aren’t happy with his or her results, don’t try to find another orthodontist—get a second opinion. Another practitioner will be able to give you an honest assessment of your situation and will help you decide whether Invisalign is right for you. If he thinks that traditional braces are your best option, then at least you can go into treatment knowing that someone has taken a hard look at all of your options. Your first consultation should last about 30 minutes, and you should bring lots of questions. You need to determine whether or not you feel comfortable with Dr. Smith's knowledge, expertise, demeanor and credentials before agreeing to anything. Here are some questions to ask: Is Dr. Smith an accredited member of the American Association of Orthodontists? Does she belong to any professional societies such as AAO (American Association of Orthodontists), ASDA (American Society for Dental Aesthetics) , AAIDD(American Academy Of Implant Dentistry), IADR(International Association For Dental Research), NACDS(National Academy Of Cosmetic Dentistry) etc.? Are there any problems within my dental structure which would make treatment unsuitable for me?


Read reviews online

There are many websites dedicated to reviewing dentists, orthodontists and other medical professionals. In fact, sites like Yelp and Google+ Local have made it easy to find reviews on just about any type of business online. Don’t be afraid to check out multiple sources as well; you might discover that a doctor with a poor rating on one site has actually earned good reviews elsewhere. Here are some sites you can turn to
