What To Expect After Your First Visit

After your initial appointment, you will be scheduled for a follow up visit where you will receive your first orthodontic appliance. This second appointment typically runs about an hour long, and Dr. Sonneborn and his team are available to answer any additional questions you may have about this and subsequent visits. 

Scheduling Appointments 

Visiting our Jackson or Battle Creek offices every four to eight weeks is to be expected during your orthodontic treatment. Our staff will work with you to make sure these appointment times are as convenient as possible for you. In the event you are running late, or cannot make it to your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so we can work together to accomodate your situation as best as we possibly can. 

Regular Dental Visits

Make sure you continue to visit your regular dentist for checkups and cleanings during the time that you are receiving orthodontic care. Dr. Sonneborn will coordinate with your family dentist should special dental needs arise during your treatment.
