Q. When is the best time for my child to have an initial consultation with an orthodontist?

A. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that each child has an orthodontic consultation by the age of seven. This allows the orthodontic team to evaluate any immediate orthodontic needs as well as future needs leading up to comprehensive orthodontic treatment. At Higginbottom Orthodontics, no dental referral is required for an initial evaluation and they are provided as a FREE courtesy to the patients and parents.
