Kids Club

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that all children be evaluated by an orthodontist by age seven. At this age, your child’s orthodontist can begin treating problems related to oral and dental growth as well as function. And young patients who do not need to start treatment right away can join our Kids Club.

What Does Kids Club Involve?

Just as your child sees a general dentist every six months for cleanings and cavity prevention, Dr. Windhorst believes children can benefit from regular orthodontic check-ups too. As part of our Kids Club, patients will be seen every 6 - 12 months so your orthodontist can monitor and measure facial growth, make sure baby teeth are coming out on time, and ensure that permanent teeth are able to grow into their proper positions (minimizing more extensive and lengthy treatment at a later age). These appointments will also allow your orthodontist to stay on top of what type of treatment your child will eventually need and determine when he or she is ready to begin treatment.

Rewards Card

When patients become a member of the Choice Orthodontics Kids Club, they get a Rewards Card. The Rewards Card allows them to earn points that can be redeemed for really cool prizes! Here are some things patients can do to earn points:
