Our Mission

At Choice Orthodontics, our goal is to see you smile! We deliver patient-focused orthodontic treatment and strive to complete your treatment efficiently, so you are in braces or clear aligners for the shortest time possible with an excellent result. We are personally committed to providing the best possible care and each person on our team will make sure you have an enjoyable orthodontic experience every time you visit our office. If you have any questions or concerns about your orthodontic progress, you are always welcome to talk with Dr. Windhorst.

Appointments

When setting up appointments we make every effort to accommodate your busy schedule. Longer appointments take 1-2 hours and will be scheduled in the morning or early afternoon. Once appliances are placed you will see us every 4-8 weeks for an appointment lasting approximately 20-40 minutes.

In an Emergency

In case of emergencies such as pain or swelling, please call as soon as you are aware there is a problem. We will schedule a time for you to be seen or you may visit our office as a "walk-in". Patients having regularly scheduled appointments will have first priority and we will fit you in as time permits. If it is after office hours, our answering machine will have an emergency number where the doctor can be reached. If you are having difficulty breathing, please go to the emergency room.

Appointment Reminders

We are happy to remind you of your appointment time and date via phone, text, or e-mail--please let us know your preference.
