A Picture Perfect Smile Faster with Fewer Appointments

At Mehdi Fotovat, DDS we’re making orthodontic treatment as convenient and hassle-free as possible. We know your life is busy and we want to take away the stress of getting a healthy, Picture Perfect Smile for your family! You can now use your phone to manage orthodontic treatment with Dental Monitoring. We can convert a patient’s (or parent’s) phone into a remote monitoring device that helps us straighten smiles faster with fewer in-office appointments.

How does Dental Monitoring work?
If you’re pursuing Invisalign treatment with our practice, the Dental Monitoring app will help us guide your pathway to a Picture Perfect Smile. We will set up a “Virtual Appointment” Schedule; you’ll get a notification from us on your personalized app, which will walk you through taking a series of pictures of your current smile. Dental Monitoring’s software automatically enhances and sequences your pictures so that Dr. Fotovat can track the treatment progress. These virtual appointments take less time than a trip to the office!

Why is Dental Monitoring so great? 

  • Visit the office less often – our patients have busy schedules and we know it’s hard to fit in appointments between school, work, sports, and other activities. Dental Monitoring allows us to monitor your progress remotely, which means fewer in-office appointments.
  • No missing appointments – decide when it’s most convenient to have your appointments! The Dental Monitoring app will send you reminders on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to take pictures – a virtual appointment that fits your schedule.
  • Better precision – we can make real-time adjustments better than we could if we didn’t see you for a whole month since we’re getting more frequent data about your progress with the pictures you send us. Dr. Fotovat can track oral hygiene level, aligner fit, tooth movement, or attachment issues that will allow him to make recommendations in real time.
  • Treatment times are faster – the digital images you send us allow Dr. Fotovat to detect issues faster and see your treatment progress more frequently. That means your in-person appointments are so much more efficient. Efficiency = faster treatment times!

More communication means better compliance and improved confidence – using Dental Monitoring allows our patients to take an active role in achieving the Picture Perfect Smile of their dreams. Getting more frequent feedback from Dr. Fotovat improves confidence and keeps your treatment on the right track.

We live our lives virtually, so why would you trust your orthodontic care to someone who isn’t embracing technological advances? Dr. Fotovat is a board certified, Invisalign Diamond+ Provider orthodontist helping to pioneer this awesome technology.

There’s no time like the present. If you’ve been thinking about orthodontics for yourself or anyone in your family, we encourage you to enjoy a complimentary consultation with us.
