Private Orthodontic Practice vs. Corporate-Owned

Why Choose Brightside Braces?

When it comes to choosing an orthodontic provider, you have options: private practices like Brightside Braces with Dr. Lewis, or corporate-owned practices.The best way to determine if the practice you are considering is privately owned or corporate-owned is to call and inquire directly. Understanding the key differences can help you make the best choice for your orthodontic care.

The corporate-owned experience

Corporate-owned orthodontic practices are often large chains that operate multiple locations. These practices are sometimes started by groups of dentists, but more often, they are owned and managed by corporations with no direct involvement from orthodontists. This can lead to several drawbacks for patients:

  • Inconsistent Care: In a corporate setting, it’s common to see a different doctor at every visit. This lack of continuity can make it challenging to build a relationship with your orthodontist and for the orthodontist to have a comprehensive understanding of your treatment progress.
  • Repetitive Health Histories: With different doctors at each appointment, you may find yourself having to review your health history repeatedly, which can be frustrating and time-consuming.
  • Less Personalized Treatment: Corporate practices may prioritize volume over personalized care. This can result in less tailored treatment plans and a more standardized approach that might not be best for your individual needs.

The private practice difference

At Brightside Braces, we believe that the personalized touch makes all the difference in your orthodontic experience. Here are some of the key benefits of choosing a private practice like ours:

  • Consistent Care: You’ll see Dr. Lewis at each visit, ensuring consistent and comprehensive care. Building a relationship with your orthodontist helps create a more comfortable and trusting treatment environment.
  • Personalized Attention: Dr. Lewis takes the time to understand each patient’s unique needs and develops customized treatment plans. This attention to detail ensures you receive the best possible care tailored specifically to you.
  • Community Involvement: Private practices are often more involved in their local communities. At Brightside Braces, we pride ourselves on being a part of the community, supporting local events, and building long-term relationships with our patients and their families.
  • Transparency and Trust: We believe in clear communication with no hidden fees. Our goal is to make your orthodontic journey as smooth and stress-free as possible. From the initial consultation to the final result, you’ll always know what to expect.
  • Streamlined Visits: With consistent care from Dr. Lewis, there’s no need to repeat your health history at every visit. We know your history and your treatment plan, making each visit efficient and focused on your progress.
