What to Expect During Your Appointment

Not only will your appointment virtually start on time, but you also won’t need to feel rushed during your appointment. We ensure that ample time is built into every appointment, so you can feel confident that all your questions will be answered and all your orthodontic needs met. Additionally, we offer the option to get your orthodontic treatment started on the same day as your initial appointment in most cases.

Your Time is Respected

Time is one of your most precious commodities, and we respect that. So we do everything possible to minimize your time waiting to be seen by Dr. DiFranco. We use advanced treatment methods and streamlined practice management tools to be ready for your visit when you are.

Because we work so hard to prepare for your appointment, we ask that you give as much notice as is feasible if you need to reschedule. We understand that life happens and are happy to work with you in extenuating circumstances. But a little advance notice helps us provide the same great level of attention to everyone we treat.

Same-Day Appointments

Commitments like school, extracurricular activities, and work may make it difficult to attend orthodontic appointments. DiFranco Orthodontics understands how managing multiple responsibilities can limit your time for things like appointments for braces. That’s why we do our best to respect your time when you visit our orthodontic offices. You can find comfort in knowing that your orthodontic needs are a priority. We don’t put you on a waiting list for your first appointment as other orthodontic offices might do. You won’t have to wait weeks or months just to find out that your transition to a new smile can’t start for several weeks. We are happy to get you in the door the same day you call to make an appointment. We realize you and your family are busy and we go above and beyond to make your treatment as convenient for you as possible.

Evening & Weekend Appointments

At DiFranco Orthodontics, we offer convenient evening hours and even see patients on select Saturdays. If your schedule is often full and you can’t make it in to see us during our posted hours, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Trusted by Local Dentists

If you are looking for an orthodontist who comes highly recommended by dentists and doctors, then look no further. Dr. DiFranco frequently meets new patients who have been referred to us by their dentist, doctor, or another patient from DiFranco Orthodontics. Meeting patients who have been referred to us is one of the greatest compliments we can receive. After all, a referral is essentially a way of saying that Dr. DiFranco strives to be the best orthodontist in Park Ridge and Norridge, IL.
