Can Another Orthodontist Remove My Braces?

Yes, they can! Changing orthodontists during braces treatment is called a “transfer” between practitioners.

It’s more common than you might think and can happen for various reasons, like moving to a new city or finding an orthodontist closer to your work or school.

What to consider when switching orthodontists?

Here are some key things to keep in mind when considering a switch:

  • Transferring Records: Your current orthodontist must transfer your dental records, X-rays, and treatment plan to your new orthodontist.
  • New Orthodontist Evaluation: Your new orthodontist will evaluate to understand your progress and see if your current treatment plan can continue or if adjustments are needed.
  • Additional Costs: There might be some extra costs associated with transferring, such as consultation fees and creating new records at the new clinic.

How much does it cost to change orthodontists?

The cost of switching orthodontists can vary depending on the complexity of your case and each clinic’s fees. It’s best to contact both orthodontists to inquire about their fees and transfer policies.

In our Dallas, Texas clinic, we always advise our patients to openly communicate with their current orthodontist. Discuss your concerns and explore options. Perhaps you can find a solution to continue treatment with your current provider.
