We understand your desire to seek the best possible orthodontic care for you or your child. We pride ourselves on our honesty and patient respect, and assure you the best orthodontic treatment available. Here are some details about our office that we feel make us unique:
Personalized Care and Shorter Treatment Times
Dr. Malan treats every patient with a personalized treatment plan that is designed to get the best possible results in the shortest time possible. Some offices delegate so much of the actual treatment to staff members, the doctor spends little or no time providing direct patient care at each adjustment appointment. In our practice, Dr. Malan sees each patient at every visit to ensure that your customized treatment is being performed as planned. Because treatment is highly customized to each patient and because of Dr. Malan's direct involvement at each visit, we are able to complete treatment in the shortest time possible while creating a beautiful smile.
Technology to Provide You the Best Care
Dr. Malan attends many local, regional, and national meetings to learn and examine all of the most current materials and techniques for orthodontic treatment. After thorough evaluation, the best are incorporated into our practice. Rather than be dependent on a few techniques and appliance systems, Dr. Malan is able to offer the best of the many techniques and materials that are currently available to treat your specific problems.
Board Certified Orthodontist
Dr. Malan is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, the only orthodontic specialty certifying board recognized by the American Dental Association. Less than 50% of practicing orthodontists have met the requirements to be Board Certified.
Caring and Highly Trained Staff Members
Dr. Malan’s staff is highly trained to handle all of your concerns. Just as important as their training is the kind, caring manner in which they carry out their responsibilities. Whether your concerns are clinical questions, financial related, or appointment issues, you can be confident that our staff will be prompt, accurate, and respectful in dealing with your concerns
Complimentary Initial Exams and Observation Exams
As a service to the community, we offer complimentary exams to all new patients. Although the American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children should first see an orthodontist at age 7, usually treatment is not actually needed until a later time. If your child is not yet ready for treatment, we will see him/her back once or twice each year to check their dental development up until the time they are ready for treatment. These follow-up observation visits are also all at no charge.
Games and Contests
Each treatment chair has a Sony PSP game console with a variety of games to play while you are in the office. In addition we have numerous hand-held electronic games in the reception room. We also have monthly contest drawings for our patients to win fun and exciting prizes. We want you to have a great experience in our office while we create your beautiful and amazing smile!
Flexible Payment Terms
We recognize that each family’s financial situation is different. In order to allow treatment to proceed when it is needed, we offer a custom tailored payment plan specific to your individual circumstances. Often times treatment can begin with no down payment required. We also accept most insurance plans and will file your insurance claim as a convenience for you.
