The thought of taking your children to have a consult for braces or getting them as an adult can be stressful for many families.
That’s why Drs. Justin Trimmell and Paul Anders of Trimmell and Anders Orthodontics are trying to make it as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Trimmell, a Hutchinson native, opened the practice six years ago with east and west side offices to provide convenience to his patients. The offices are open 5 days a week from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Dr. Anders, a Wichita native, joined the practice in 2009 and “is a perfect fit,” said Trimmell.
With the latest and greatest technology and a team that is focused on providing the best care, patients are well taken care of from the first appointment to the final one.
“We have the best bracket technology,” said Trimmell. “We’re familiar with them all and that is a benefit for our patients.”
The office is a leader in the area with Invisalign and has the latest computer technology to provide patients with top-quality 3-D imaging for many other treatments as well.
And to make it even easier to know your child’s needs, consultations with Trimmell and Anders are free.
“You can call and schedule a consultation at any time,” said Trimmell. “You don’t need a referral from a dentist.”
Trimmell suggested watching for issues that have been caused by thumb sucking, tongue thrust, etc. A child’s self esteem can be harmed due to dental issues as well, said Trimmell, so a consultation could be done based on that alone.
“Consultations are always complimentary,” said Trimmell. “We go over what we would need to do, how long it would take, what it would cost. And we look into insurance benefits and how to maximize those.”
Aside from early treatment issues, 10 to 12 years of age is a good age to come in, said Trimmell.
Outside of the best technology available, the friendly staff strives to stay on time. While waiting on family members to finish exams or treatments, there is an area for children to play, coffee available and television.
“We try to make it as comfortable as possible,” said Trimmell. “And we make sure patients are familiar with each person in the office so they know who to talk with about financial questions or treatment questions or anything else.”
