A DAY IN THE LIFE OF OLLIE: WHEN A NEW CLIENT COMES ON BOARD
So it’s no secret that our collection of blogs tends to follow the sequence of putting the spotlight on our treatments. This is especially noticeable in the run up to our best annual offer of £1000 off Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. However, what we thought we would do differently this week is give some inside perspective from our very own Ollie.
If you’re considering a corrective dental treatment and are wondering what the first few steps entail, then take a read of this blog that’s come straight from Ollie, our Clinical Instructor. Hopefully you’ll gain a clearer insight into how powerful these treatments can be to you and your life.
THERE IS A REASON BEHIND EVERY TREATMENT
Most clients who come in for a treatment tend to be motivated to improve some aspect of their life. Essentially some patients want to improve their confidence through improving their smile. It could be to encourage a smile at family and social events, to help with job prospects, or sometimes to help them find a new partner.
Very rarely I get a client just wanting to have 6MS or Invisalign exclusively. Almost always there is a different story behind everyone who comes in, but they each hold the same interest to improve their confidence through correcting their smiles.
When a client first presents to the clinic we immediately set out to find out more about their story and what their motivation is to have any treatment done. Once we’ve fully understood that and their lifestyle we can then make recommendations on how to help.
Invisalign and 6MS aligners are usually part of a bigger overall solution that we offer the patient. Based on these solutions, sometimes two or three we’ll discuss the pros and cons of the options. After clinical examination and agreement on the treatment, then we progress to take records.
Initially we complete a full clinical examination on our patients and then go through the relevant consent procedures prior to starting any treatment. With both treatments we need to take a full set of photographs and also complete and orthodontic examination (this does not take long!) and then to get started we take either a digital scan or an impression of both sets of teeth.
With Invisalign we will go through a digital treatment plan called ClinCheck where we can digitally plan the position of your teeth. ClinCheck also works to give an idea of how many aligners will be needed and the duration of treatment as well.
With 6MS we will plan out where we would like the brackets to be positioned and whether we need to alter any part of the plan. Once we have the plan set up, our colleagues at 6MS will provide the setup of the brackets so we can commence with the braces on into treatment phase.
OUR COLLABORATIVE APPROACH
Each treatment we perform at Ollie and Darsh is seen as a journey, and within that we collaborate with our clients from start to finish. Particularly during the preliminary stages of the treatment we work mutually with our clients to ensure aligners and braces are suited to you. This is a joint process and we like to share the outcome with our patients before designing and fabricating the aligners, or braces.

We hope this inside information on the initial process of beginning the treatment has shed some insight. Our job is to fix teeth, but our passion is to improve confidence through individual smiles.
