Choosing a Local Orthodontist

Are you considering braces for you or a family member? If so, searching on Google for someone in your area may seem like the best method to find a local orthodontist. While that is true for your preliminary search, digging a little deeper in your research will help you find the perfect orthodontist.

You’re going to have your smile forever, so let’s get it right the first time.

Happily serving the community in the greater Philadelphia area, Dr. McSurdy is located in Collegeville & Gilbertsville, PA.

Thing to Consider in an Orthodontist

While perfectly straight teeth are certainly a worthy goal with braces, it is not the only reason for orthodontic treatments. Orthodontic treatments also help correct: crowded teeth, misalignment, crossbite, overbite, underbite, grinding, and even some speaking issues. These are all important issues to have addressed for lifelong oral health.

We’ve compiled a list of important factors to keep in mind when searching for a local orthodontist.

  • Qualifications: This in vital to ensuring the best orthodontic care. While some general dentists may provide orthodontic treatments, certified orthodontists go through 2-3 years of specialized training for orthodontic care. Dr. McSurdy is trained and certified in orthodontic treatments. He is also a member of the American Association of Orthodontists.
  • Treatment Option Variety: The ideal treatment for one patient is not necessarily the ideal treatment for another. Because each mouth and set of teeth is unique, variety in treatment options in important. Doctor McSurdy offers a wide variety of treatment options to fit any need: early treatment, P.I.E incremental expanders, Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners, Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners Teen, facial aesthetics, and traditional braces.
  • Cost and Financing: Finding the right orthodontist that will fit into your budget can be challenging. Doctor McSurdy doesn’t want the cost associated with orthodontic treatment to keep anyone from receiving care. We offer no-interest financing options, payment plans, and complimentary insurance billing.
  • Free Consultations: Even if you are just needing a second opinion, finding a local orthodontist that provides free consultations is crucial. This is the best time to ask those important questions. Doctor McSurdy offers free orthodontic consultations. We want you to be comfortable with all aspects of your treatment.
