If you have made the decision to have Invisalign placed on your teeth, in order to get them set in their proper position, than you need to verify the competence, and capability, of the dental practice you are going to work with. One of the worst ideas, once you have made this decision, is to shop around, and ask every practice you call how much they charge for their services.
This is a terrible approach because all you doing is verifying price - not researching cost. The "cost" is where the value lies. Sure a dental practice may have the cheapest prices in your area, but if you end up going back to this place multiple times to have the job done correctly, then the cost ended up being high - so high it may not have been worth getting involved in the first place.
So how does one research cost? The internet has made this process so much easier today, it's a joke. It does require that you set some time aside to conduct quality research, but in time, and once you start getting the hang of finding the information you are looking for, it becomes easier to do.
First up you want to look for dentists that offer Invisalign. This is easily done. All you need to do is type in the keywords, "Invisalign specialist in nyc," and a list of dentists will pop up. Next you want to take a look at the ratings that pop up. You want to look for dentists that have at least four stars, and that those stars are based on at least ten reviews. Anything less than ten, and you you don't have enough weight with which to take that rating seriously.
Next you want to read through those reviews, and see which dentists are getting reviews that are actually talking about the experience, and not just writing things, "Great service, go see them!" These kind of results don't provide value, and at the very worst, could be phony. You want to consider dentists that have people writing in real reviews, that have have message that required someone to think about what they were writing.
Once you have that information, this will automatically eliminate most of the names you had when you first started doing your research. The next step is to set up an appointment, and find out if Invisalign is truly a good fit for your current oral situation.
