It’s best for the orthodontist to see children by age 7 to advise if orthodontic treatment is required and the best time for that patient to be treated.
The first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time and crossbites, crowding and other problems can be evaluated. When treatment is begun early, the orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth.
We have a Club for our younger patients.
Finkelson Fun – “Kids Club”!!
Thank you for choosing our office for the orthodontic care of your child. We enjoyed meeting you today and hope that your visit was thorough, informative and enjoyable.
We are proud to introduce our Finkelson Fun Kids Club! It’s designed especially for our young patients who are not quite ready for orthodontic treatment.
So why Kids Club?
While The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that all children receive their first orthodontic screening visit by age 7, it needs to be remembered that only a small percentage of children require any intervention at that time. Allowing Dr. Finkelson to be able to monitor your children as they grow gives you the opportunity to
- monitor the eruption and space for adult teeth
- monitor jaw growth and detect abnormalities that are easier to correct at an earlier age
- recommend any treatment at the ideal time in growth so that it is easiest for your child
How much does Kids Club Cost?
NO FEE!!!….Because we believe in the benefits that Kids Club has to offer your child, we offer this great program at no fee to either you or your insurance company!
So how does Kids Club work?
At Finkelson Orthodontics, we do everything possible to make your orthodontic experience exciting and fun!! If you are not ready to begin orthodontic treatment you will be invited to join our Finkelson Fun Kids Club. When you join our club you will receive your very own Kids Club T-shirt, your very own spin brush, as well as plenty of other goodies. You’ll also have access to fun office events, exclusive contests, and cool prizes just for Kids Club members!
We’re happy you’re our patient, and we look forward to helping you create a happy, healthy smile. As a Kids Club member, you will be seen every three to twelve months to monitor the growth and development of your teeth and jaws. Dr. Finkelson will make sure your baby teeth are coming out on time and that permanent teeth are best able to grow into their proper position, minimizing more extensive and lengthy treatment at a later age.
