Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levens "Our patients submit themselves to a very trusting relationship with us and I do not take that responsibility lightly.  I offer Orthodontic care exactly the same way as I do for my own family.  

First, we devote an entire hour to the initial consultation appointment.  Although this visit is complimentary, we put a lot of effort into making sure that our patients know the following:

1.  What problems we are seeing in their mouth,

2.  What can be done to correct their concerns,

3.  What the options are for any proposed treatment,

4.  What are the costs of any treatment, how long will the treatment take to complete and what the treatment will look like,

5.  How we can help finance any treatment to make it easily affordable.

I place each brace and bend each wire with my own two hands.  Delegation may make financial sense to some but to me it is not in the best interest of our patients overall care and so we just don't delegate the treatment to staff.  I feel strongly that this leads to a more comfortable, quicker and better result.

I also keep in mind that my responsibility to our patients is to make Orthodontic care affordable.  We do not consider two-stages of necessary to be in the best interest of our patients and their family's except in rare situations when waiting to correct an early onset problem will cause harmful effects.  For instance, making the front four upper permanent teeth straight while knowing the patient will almost certainly need a second stage of treatment is just not done in my office.  "
