What Makes First Choice Dental Orthodontics Different?

As you’re considering your options for orthodontic treatment in Madison, it’s wise to ask what makes your orthodontist different from the rest? First Choice Dental Orthodontics is unique in the Madison area in a number of ways. We’re committed to providing superior dental and orthodontic care for the smile of your life. Consider these facts:

Voted “Madison’s Top Orthodontists” According to Madison Magazine

Every other year, Madison Magazine asks area dental professionals to nominate their choice for the area’s best orthodontic specialists. Since 2009, we’ve been honored to be named Madison’s Top Orthodontist according to the people who know smiles best, general dentists throughout Madison. Dr. Sarah Santos is held in extremely high regard among her peers, as well as her patients.  

Madison Orthodontists & Premier Providers of Damon Braces and Invisalign

First Choice Dental Orthodontics features orthodontists who are premier providers of Damon braces, as well as Invisalign adult and teen. This means our orthodontists are among the most experienced professionals who handle more cases in these two premier systems than most providers. Experience translates into expertise that benefits your smile and gives you comfort knowing you’re working with experts who can get the results you’re looking for. As a premier Invisalign provider we’re among the top 5% of providers in the area.

Our Orthodontists Get Results More Efficiently With Unique Damon Brackets 

Few orthodontics providers in the area use our preferred Damon Brackets System. This patented, advanced orthodontic technology is superior in the way the brackets are designed and in the way the wire moves the teeth and is positioned to move in the brackets. Patients will enjoy being able to go 8-10 weeks between visits, as opposed to the more common monthly visits. We’re also able to avoid oral surgery more often when using our Damon system, so our methodology is typically less invasive and often less expensive for patients.

Private appointment rooms versus open bays mean one-one-one time with your doctor and respect for your privacy.

Most orthodontists practice in open orthodontic bays where chairs are lined up and multiple patients share the same space. Our patients tell us they prefer the peace and privacy of our private appointment rooms where doctor-patient conversations can take place more comfortably. And treatment happens discretely and with regard for privacy and quiet.

For dental patients, your whole smile care team is right here for convenience and time savings.

With neighborhood dental offices throughout the greater Madison area and an orthodontics team that travels to many of them, we’re easy to get to and you can get two visits done at once. First Choice Dental – Orthodontics is part of First Choice Dental Group. Our busy patients really appreciate being able to have both dental care and orthodontic care from the same team of providers. Scheduling ortho appointments and dental appointments together means fewer trips and saves your family time. 

Our orthodontists make the time and give you the access you need for answers to your questions.

One of the comments our patients make frequently is that we take the time to answer their questions and make them comfortable with the next step of treatment. For new patients considering treatment, we do a one-hour, thorough exam and take x-rays and impressions to give us the insights we need to create a unique, effective proposed treatment plan. This initial appointment is also an opportune time to discuss your concerns and goals for your smile with your orthodontist and gain recommendations about how best to address it with orthodontic care. Our orthodontists are also readily available between visits for questions via phone or email.

Our Orthodonists Are Committed to Ongoing Excellence through Continuing Education

It’s not uncommon to hear Dr. Santos or another orthodontist with First Choice Dental talk about the conference or continuing education session they recently attended. In a field where the technology and techniques are constantly changing and you need to continually sharpen the sword to stay on top of your game, it’s critical to choose an orthodontist who’s committed to being, and staying, at the forefront of orthodontic trends and patient care.
