Virtual Appointments


(upbeat music) – Hi everyone, Dr. Sarpo
here at Icon Orthodontics. And today we are excited to announce our virtual appointment service through our website at iconbraces.com. Simply log in from your phone or computer, and follow the pop up link, and you’ll be able to upload your photos, so the myself Dr. Sun
can monitor your progress and advise you on how to
continue your treatment from the comfort and safety of your home. This option will also be available for new patients who’d
like to have a screening to see if they qualify
for orthodontic treatment. Today I’d like to demonstrate
how to take these photos. You’ll need three things, a friend, a smartphone or digital
camera, and two spoons. The first step is to wash
you hands thoroughly. I’ve already done that, so
we’re gonna move on to step two. Take your two spoons and use them to hold your cheeks away for
a clear view of your teeth. The first photo is gonna be of the front of your teeth, biting down. Take the two spoons with the curved side towards your teeth, and
hold them away like this. Remember also to bite down all the way on your back teeth as you take this photo. (upbeat music) Now that we have the first photo, we’re going to take two more of the teeth from the right and left sides. Remember, again to continue biting down while your friend takes the picture. (upbeat music) Finally, we’re gonna do pictures of the upper and the lower teeth. For the lower teeth,
just tip your head down. (upbeat music) And for the upper teeth, tip your head up. (upbeat music) You can submit these photos online through your computer or smartphone prior to your virtual appointment. In this way we will be able to make sure that your teeth are
moving along as intended. Know that the materials we
use here at Icon Orthodontics allow for tooth movement even
when you’re not in the office, which means that even
during this down time your teeth will be moving
predictably, as we have planned. I hope that you and your family remain happy and healthy
during this difficult time. And know that we look forward to seeing you again in
the office very soon. (upbeat music)
