Oral Hygiene Recall Program

During the past year and a half, we have shown our patients, their family dentists and the community a number of ways we are truly uncommon. During the month of March, we will be delivering yet another uncommon feature for our patients…so unique that, to our knowledge, we are the only orthodontic practice anywhere that does anything like it!

 

If you are a patient of record with Uncommon Orthodontics, your family dentist will receive a communication from us that we call the “Hygiene Recall Letter.” This letter lists all patients we have in common with your dentist, along with their contact information and instructions. The goal is for us to partner with your dentist to be certain that you are current on your dental hygiene needs.

 

You may wonder why that is such a big deal, but your dentist will not wonder at all. Sometimes patients think they are “going to the dentist” when they are coming in for their orthodontic appointments and they may let their hygiene appointments “slide.” While we are really careful to hold a high standard for brushing excellence, we are not in the business of doing a dental exam at every appointment. You need the expertise of your dentist and hygienist to make certain that little problems do not become complex…and to be sure that when the braces come off, the teeth and gums will be in tiptop shape when you show off that new smile that you worked on so hard!

 

So, your dentist should be looking out for this letter. It will be mailed by post and email and in some cases, hand delivered. Your dentist, hygienist and your friends at Uncommon Orthodontics care about your smile and we are honored to have the opportunity to serve you!

    As a registered dental hygienist I feel very blessed to be apart of such an amazing company. This is such a huge step in the right direction for youth and their oral health. This will create a path for better prevention among ortho patients and for other ortho offices to follow. I have seen a major increase in young ortho patients and many lacking on their oral hygiene. I am so very happy that you as a company are making it known how important oral health is in our community and especially targeting our youth.

    Thank you for leading the way,
