dougherty orthodontics patient reviewsEveryone wants a beautiful, straight, healthy smile! A straight smile doesn’t only help with self-esteem and confidence, it also makes it easier to brush and floss between teeth to maintain great oral hygiene.  Sometimes, though, making the trip into an orthodontist’s office isn’t an easy process. Between work, kids, school, and of course, the need to socially distance, starting orthodontic treatment may seem like it has to wait. But does it? A virtual consultation at Dougherty Orthodontics may just be the best way to start your new smile journey.

With a few easy steps, Dr. Dougherty can assess your smile, bite and jaw structure, and she can do it all without even meeting you in person!  At Dougherty Orthodontics in St Louis MO,, we offer a  Virtual Consultation option! These virtual assessments are a great way to connect with Dr. Dougherty and start your journey to a brand new smile. 

The Virtual Smile Assessment Process

It’s easy to get started with your smile assessment. In fact, it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3! 

  1. Grab your phone or mobile device.
  2. Take a series of photos on your phone.
  3. Receive your Smile Assessment and Consultation.

After receiving and reviewing your photos, Dr. Dougherty will reach out to you with a plan that may include clear aligner treatment with Invisalign, traditional braces, or a combination of treatment options.  After discussing your options virtually with you, an in-office appointment will be scheduled to get your aligners ordered or your braces placed.  

You will be minimizing your time in the office and at appointments while still working towards the beautiful smile you want and deserve.
