Telehealth doctor visits are becoming increasingly common and convenient. At Somerville Orthodontics we are happy to provide complementary Virtual Consultations to our Somerville community. If you are interested in Invisalign or braces, here’s what you need to know about getting your orthodontic treatment started from the comfort of your home.
What are Virtual Consultations?
Virtual consultations offer a convenient and easy way to learn about your orthodontic treatment options from the comfort of your home and are available to patients of all ages. You can get started right away without having to place a call, schedule an appointment, or make a trip to the doctor’s office. This has become even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic where reducing unnecessary trips can help keep you and your community safe. During your virtual consultation, you will receive an assessment of your smile and treatment options.
How can I get started with my virtual consultation?
Simply visit our home page and follow the Virtual Consult instructions to begin. Answer a few questions and upload five photos of your smile. Submit the form and you are done! It’s quick and easy to do—the whole process will only take you a few minutes.
Do I need to schedule a time to receive my Virtual Consultation?
No, you don’t have to schedule a specific time to get started. Simply visit our Virtual Consult section to begin.
What happens after I submit the form on the Virtual Consult section?
Dr. Lee will review the information and pictures that you’ve submitted and our team will reach out to you to schedule your one on one virtual consultation. During your virtual consultation, Dr. Lee will walk you through a proposed treatment plan and a pricing outline, as well as show examples of cases similar to yours so that you can get an idea of what your end results will look like.
I’ve received my smile assessment from Dr. Lee and want to get started on treatment—what’s next?
During your virtual consultation, Dr. Lee will go over your insurance benefit and the various financing options for treatment. If you are ready to get started, we can schedule you right away!
I loved my virtual consultation. Do you also offer virtual appointments throughout treatment?
Absolutely, in many cases after your initial visit we can monitor your progress and give recommendations remotely. We can always schedule an office visit for anything that needs to be addressed in person.
What COVID-19 safety precautions does your office take for in-person office visits?
The safety and well-being of our patients, staff and community is a top priority for us. We protect our team and our patients with the latest recommended personal protective equipment (PPE). We have all of the latest sterilization protocols in place to ensure that our facilities and clinics are ready for your arrival. All patients and staff members are screened prior to visiting the office and are required to wear approved face masks.
