Orthodontic Sales

Question:

I went to an orthodontic office because they were having a sale. When I said I needed time to think about starting treatment and signing a long-term contract, I endured 10 minutes of “used car salesman” pressure to start treatment that very minute. Do other orthodontic offices put such pressure on patients to begin treatment?

Answer:

For my office, the answer is a definite no. My staff is trained to help patients make decisions they are comfortable with. The decision to begin orthodontic treatment should never be pressured. Also, the office you are referring to is known to make it very difficult for patients or parents to get out of a contract for almost any reason once it’s signed. Please call my office to set up your free, no pressure consultation, or visit my website or Facebook page to see my patient results and reviews.
