Before starting Orthodontic Treatment:

 

  • Make sure that your doctor is an Orthodontist. Nowadays many dentists participate in certificate programs of 3-4 days and introduce themselves as orthodontists. To become an orthodontist you should graduate from faculty of dentistry of 5 years and you should have 4 years of education on orthodontics. Orthodontics diploma is given by T.R.Ministry of health or by the universities. On the diploma of your orthodontist the name of university or the stamp of Ministry of Heath should be placed. When you choose your doctor if you want to control if he is an orthodontist or not, you can learn it from address of www.tod.org.tr from “search doctor” section by writing his name and last name. TOD (Turkish Orthodontics Association)
  • Pay attention that your doctos has his own clinic. Orthodontist can go to various dental clinics or dental hospitals a few times a month as being contracted. Thus, it is more important for the quality and speed of your treatment for you to find an orthodontist who has his own dental clinic or orthodontics center enabling you to reach him at any moment instead of those providing services outside their clinic.
  • At institutions like dental hospitals doctors can change frequently.
  • In order for your orthodontics treatment to be successful it is important to end up with the same doctor. If you have a different orthodontist at each appointment your treatment can not be finalized properly.
  • You can ask for the photos regarding pre and post treatments that were realized before by your orthodontist. Ask all the questions you want. Be informed without leaving any question marks in your mind.
  • After realizing all these investigations you can start investigation orthodontics prices and charges. Orthodontics treatments are expensive treatments both in Turkey and in the world. Therefore after investigating  orthodontics treatment prices you will see that they ate at average values.

“Best orthodontics treatment is the one that is realized for once in a life time.“
