Upcoming Events



Starting Integrative Orthodontics

Here is what to expect when you begin Integrative Orthodontics with us. The items may not be in this order and you may not need all the items for your case. (You'll learn more at the consultation)

1) Comprehensive Myofunctional Exam

Even after the consultation, we are going to examine your face, your tongue posture and movements, your breathing, your posture, your lip tone, your sleep habits and more. You'll be seen by our Certified Oral Myologist, the orthodontist and the Coaches. This will help us hone in on your issues and serve as a baseline to monitor improvement during the program.

2) Meet your Coach and get your Game:FACE book

Your Coach is your first Ally. You will have one coach assigned to you (though all of us are your Allies!). She will go over your book, help you define your Quests, Allies, Villians, PowerUPs.

Most important, you will start to define your Epic Wins - the way you want to improve over the course of the program.

3) Do your Game: FACE homework

Parents will need to sit with your child and discuss:

  1. Your Quests and what rewards you'll give for conquering them.
  2. How you will adjust your home and activity schedule to make room for appliance wear and exercises.

4) Get fitted for your appliances

If you need a Biobloc or a lightwire expander you may need new impressions or have bands (tooth rings) fitted. We'll show you all the details before we do it.

If you're starting with a Trainer, we'll size you up and help you get used to it.

5) Sign up for your Classes

You have the advantage of attending four classes to boost your progress:

  1. Breathing
  2. Nutrition
  3. Posture
  4. Sleep

It is recommended that you take them as close to the beginning of the program as possible. You can also retake the classes as many times as you like over the course of your contract.

6) And away we Grow!

We wish you the best of health and beauty! We're right behind you all the way!
