Take advantage of Dr. Schechtman’s Smile Analysis completely free for you or your child by calling us at 914.962.9600. During the analysis, Dr. Schechtman will carefully examine the teeth for a wide range of possible orthodontic problems, such as crowding, cross-bite, gaps, et cetera. Once Dr. Schechtman has a clear picture of the most likely course of treatment, he’ll discuss what type of treatment is necessary, how long it will take, and estimate how much it will cost. You’ll understand everything you need to know in order to decide whether to proceed with treatment.
When you begin treatment after the initial exam, diagnostic records are taken with a digital scan, photographs and any necessary Xray images. Information obtained is used to customize your treatment plan. After Dr. Schechtman has thoroughly evaluated the diagnostic records, he’ll explain your treatment plan to you in detail, including the cost for your particular case. Every detail will be effectively communicated and available to you.
After the records appointment, you’ll be ready to schedule the appointment to get your new appliances (braces, expanders, Invisalign®, etc.) fitted. This process usually takes one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals of four to eight weeks for an adjustment, which takes about 30 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
Please prepare for your first appointment by completing our new patient information forms. Download the forms to your computer to complete at home. Then bring them with you to your first appointment.
