Our orthodontist and team at Schechtman Orthodontics are thrilled to have you as a new patient! To ensure you feel prepared and informed for your visit with us, please explore the pages below and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Records Appointment

When you begin treatment after an initial exam, diagnostic records are taken with a digital scan, photographs and any necessary X-ray images. The information obtained is used to customize your treatment plan.  After Dr. Richard Schechtman has thoroughly evaluated the diagnostic information, he’ll explain your treatment plan to you in detail, including the cost for your particular case. Every detail will be effectively communicated to you.

Regular Appointments

After the records appointment, you’ll be ready to schedule the appointment to get your new appliances (braces, expanders, Invisalign®, etc.) fitted. This process usually takes one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals of four to eight weeks for an adjustment, which takes about 30 minutes. Patients visiting our Orthodontist in Westchester, New York, are seen by appointment only. So, we make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
