You have many options for orthodontic treatment as a Lake Mary, Florida, resident. You can get your orthodontic care from a dentist or even entirely online!
Beim Orthodontics does not want to discourage you from receiving treatment from where you feel most comfortable. After all, if you’re unlikely to attend your appointments or trust your provider, you probably won’t see much change in your smile. However, with so many places to go, Beim Orthodontics would like to take just a moment to share with you what sets orthodontic teams apart from the crowd and how we differentiate ourselves from them!
One of the most significant advantages of receiving in-office orthodontic care from an orthodontist is the in-person orthodontist!
Orthodontist vs. Dentist
Every orthodontist attends dental school, but most dentists do not receive the same extensive orthodontic training as orthodontists do. Because Dr. Beim is specially trained in teeth and jaw alignment, he can offer you better insight and results than a dentist. Since orthodontic offices don’t require tools for dental screenings, we have more space for orthodontic equipment and evaluations — meaning we have no other priority than your smile and bite alignment!
Dentists are fantastic oral healthcare providers, and you will need to continue to see one before, during, and after your orthodontic care to ensure your oral health. Orthodontists and dentists just specialize in different services, and we recommend visiting the one appropriate for the issue you wish to address.
Orthodontist vs. Online Provider
Online oral healthcare is revolutionary! Beim Orthodontics is not against online orthodontic exams — in fact, we offer a virtual consultation ourselves! — but we believe your care should not be entirely digital.
To get started in digital orthodontic care, many companies send you an at-home mold impressions kit and request images of your mouth. While this helps them determine your care, they’re working with a lot of missing information! Your mouth needs to be healthy before, during, and after orthodontic treatment. Sometimes issues lie under the surface. Without X-rays, digital providers risk moving teeth that aren’t ready to be moved, which could lead to unnecessary pain or complications during treatment. At Beim Orthodontics, we use our dental expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to determine whether a patient is ready for treatment.
Orthodontist vs. Dentist and Online Provider
Dentists and online providers also typically only offer one treatment option — clear aligners. We love clear aligners at Beim Orthodontics, but they’re not the best route for everybody. We are proud to have multiple treatment options like metal braces, clear braces, clear aligners, and Carriere motion appliances to ensure we can provide safe and effective care for various patient needs.
Beim Orthodontics is not owned by some national corporation that views patients as numbers or statistics; it’s owned by Dr. Beim, who takes pride in his work and loves building relationships with his patients. Because there isn’t a manager above him watching his every move, Dr. Beim can spend as much with each patient as necessary to establish trust and confidence, answer all questions, and thoroughly evaluate every case.
When you become our patient, you do more than just transform your smile. You are helping your community. Dr. Beim and his team are active members of the Lake Mary community, and Dr. Beim loves doing volunteer work and participating in various organizations. None of it would be possible without you, and we cherish your support daily.
We want to provide Lake Mary and the surrounding areas with care that won’t force you to dip into your savings. Orthodontic care is critical to oral health, and we don’t want anyone’s reason for not pursuing healthcare to be the cost.
We offer affordable care and will gladly communicate with your insurance company to save you the hassle and confirm that you are maxing out your benefits before you receive a bill. We also have payment plans if you still have a balance after insurance is applied.
Beim Orthodontics does not believe in hidden fees or charges. We will break the cost down for you and help you choose the best options for your goals and budget.
