Virtual Consultation

Would you like to know if orthodontic treatment is right for you? Our Virtual Orthodontic Consultation can start the conversation for you! To begin, simply send Dr. Spannhake a few photos along with any questions you have regarding your smile. Dr. Spannhake will review your photos within 24 hours and provide you with her initial recommendations on orthodontic care for your smile.

Use your cell phone camera and a friend or family member to help you take a series of photographs similar to the samples shown below. Quick tip – using your fingers or a clear plastic spoon to pull your cheeks to the side really helps with the side photos.

Then, click on the corresponding example images below to upload your photos to Dr. Spannhake. This will help her best evaluate your smile. Don't worry if you can't take them all, just do your best and we can always ask for more information if necessary. We look forward to seeing your smile soon!
