Getting Started

Welcome to Sandy Smiles Orthodontics

A no-stress zone. Open communication, attentive professionals, and thorough, tech-forward treatment define your time at Sandy Smiles.

Choosing orthodontic care is a big decision, we make it easy.

Your smile journey starts with a thorough assessment of your smile, mouth and face to create a custom treatment plan. Using cutting-edge technology, we offer a variety of effective and gentle treatment options that will help you realize your smile goals. Our one-on-one attentive care will ensure your path to a straighter smile is smooth sailing from start to finish. 

Here’s how it works:


Initial Consultation: customized treatment planning


First Appointment: get fitted with your new orthodontic appliance


Monitor Your Progress: stay on track with regular check-ups

Get started with an initial consultation.

Meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, and discuss treatment options that best meet your needs.

Getting to know you:

Our consultations begin with one-on-one attention where we take the time to get an in-depth understanding of your needs. We'll review your dental and medical history forms. Dr. Zwickel will then perform a complete oral exam with X-rays to determine whether treatment is necessary.

Treatment Planning with iTero:

We create your custom treatment plan using the iTero Digital Impression System. Say goodbye to the gag-worthy, goopy putty impressions of the past. Using the our handheld iTero scanning wand, we render a precise 3D digital model of your teeth and soft tissue structures in just minutes. We use the model to prepare any treatment, including Invisalign, and you get to preview your future smile.

Answering Your Questions:

Finally, we discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans. Our team willl take the time to answer your questions and provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you.

Schedule your complementary consultation!

Next step to achieving the smile of your dreams.

After your consultation, we schedule your next appointment where Dr. Zwickel places your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and our team is available to make sure you are relaxed and comfortable.

Progress visits.

Seeing the orthodontist every four to eight weeks is critical to your successful orthodontic treatment. We work with you to schedule appointments as conveniently as possible. 

Life happens. We get it. If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.

We’re looking forward to working with you!
