My job as Dr. West's orthodontic treatment coordinator is to help our patients and parents navigate their journey towards a happy, healthy smile. In other words, I am here to help you set up appointments to start the process, coordinate appointments with your general dentist or other specialist along the way, research insurance benefits as well as helping set up financial arrangements that suit everyone's needs. I would like both potential and current patients to think of me as the "go to" person when it comes to orthodontic treatment. If I don't know the answer to your question, I always do my best to find out.
Our orthodontic team consists of highly trained registered dental assistants-each with many years of orthodontic experience.
We invite our patients and parents to always feel free to ask questions regarding their treatment at any time.
