What Makes Us Great
Dr. Rebecca Bockow and her orthodontic team are committed to proving you with excellent orthodontic treatment. We want you to feel at home when you come to our office. Undertaking orthodontic care is a big decision, so we want you to be as comfortable and confident as possible when you’re here. We’d be glad to answer any questions you might have. Please give us a call or drop by our office!
Individual Care and Treatment
When it comes to orthodontics, one size does not fit all. Each patient presents with his or her individual issues, concerns, priorities, schedule and needs. Therefore, each treatment plan is customized and we work with each patient to ensure that these specific needs are met.
Your initial examination with us is always complimentary. During the initial consultation, we will take photographs and discuss your specific treatment needs. Please expect to spend at least an hour with Dr. Bockow and our team so that we can review your proposed treatment plan, timeline and financial commitment. In an effort to save you a trip back to our office, we can start your treatment the same day.
Specializing in Tooth Movement and Skeletal Growth and Development
Dr. Rebecca Bockow is a specialist in tooth movement as well as skeletal growth and development. She will not only align your teeth, but also evaluate and look for ways to improve airway, the gingiva (gums), and the occlusion (the way the teeth fit together).
Dr. Bockow frequently collaborates with other professionals to provide more advanced levels of care. Examples of this type of interdisciplinary care include collaboration with the following specialists:
- Restorative dentists and prosthodontists to move teeth in preparation for future dental restorations and/or to prepare a patient for a lifetime of a more stable bite
- Periodontists and restorative dentists to prepare patients for implants, soft tissue grafts and/or bone grafts
- Oral surgeons for combined orthodontic/orthognathic surgical cases
- Sleep Medicine Physicians, ENTs and Myofunctional therapists for airway improvement
Let Us Handle Your Insurance
Insurance can be complicated. Having a dedicated in-office insurance specialist allows us to help you fully explore your insurance coverage and to get the most out of your benefits. We will thoroughly explain your insurance benefits and even file them on your behalf!
Dr. Rebecca Bockow is always looking to use technology to provide a higher level of patient care while also improving patient convenience. We use an iTero digital scanner to take impressions of teeth. Digital impressions are incredibly accurate, they are compatible with Invisalign, and they help ease the process for patients with a strong gag reflex.
We genuinely look forward to working with you and are excited that you have chosen to work with us. Please contact our practice at (206) 623-2192 to schedule an appointment.
