Orthodontic Appointment for Existing Patients

Seeing Our Orthodontist Regularly Is Easier Than Ever

Our doctors at TS Orthodontics have always been committed to seeing you or your child for regular, scheduled visits. We believe it is critical in ensuring quality care for everyone we treat. With the changing times and the addition of Online Appointments, Dr. Scanlan and our team have reviewed which appointments require you or your child to be physically in the office, and which ones can be done from the comfort of your home or office.

As a patient, you will still be receiving our exceptional, customized care and seeing our doctors, but you no longer have to take 1/2 day off of work or more. You won’t need to take your child out of school or deal with traffic and parking. We are trying to find ways to continue providing the very best care for you in the most common-sense way possible!
