As a patient at Ridge Meadows Orthodontics, you come first. Our team of talented, friendly orthodontic professionals make it their mission to ensure that your first visit to our office - and each one after that - is stress-free and comfortable.
We focus on you, the patient, by addressing your individual needs and concerns.
A beautiful smile can provide increased confidence, regardless of age. That's why we go above and beyond to make each patient feel comfortable and at home.
We also educate our patients each step of the way, because the more you know about your care, and the more confident you are in it, the better the results!
At Ridge Meadows Orthodontics, we believe that finances should never be a barrier to a beautiful, healthy smile. Our flexible, affordable financing options help us make orthodontic treatment accessible to anyone who needs it.
You can rest assured that the Ridge Meadows Orthodontics Team will work with you to find a payment plan that works for you.
Flexible appointment times offered early in the morning help accommodate your busy schedule, so the time missed from school or work is limited. Get in Touch and we'll help you make an appointment that fits into your schedule.
Our convenient schedule is designed to provide maximum availability for short appointments in the after-school hours.
Longer appointments, for instance those needed to put on and remove braces, are therefore reserved for morning and mid-afternoon hours.
On occasions when you have to miss school or work for your appointment with us,we will provide the documents you need for qualified work and school excuses.
At the Ridge Meadows Orthodontics office in Maple Ridge, we use the most recent technologies and treatment techniques, all of which have been designed with your safety and comfort in mind.
For instance, digital radiography protects patients from unnecessary radiation, and is also a more environmentally-friendly technology, as it does not require the harsh chemicals associated with traditional X-ray processing.
In addition, we offer a paperless integration of all of our computer system. This allows for instant access to patient information at each patient's chair, and is a 'green' alternative to paper documents.
Dr. Michelle Couto is a Certified Invisalign Orthodontist in Maple Ridge and Coquitlam. If you've always wanted beautiful, straight teeth, but have been put off by the idea of having to wear braces, then Invisalign might be the right choice for you.
Invisalign provides the beautiful smile you've always wanted – without the obvious look of traditional braces. Book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Michelle Couto and the Ridge Meadows Orthodontics team to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
In our office, all instruments are packed in delivery cassettes and 'autoclaved'. An autoclave is a pressurized medical device that is designed to sterilize dental and medical equipment using steam under pressure. It is one of the most effective methods for destruction of all types of microorganisms.
Every instrument we use comes directly to your chair packaged and completely sterilized, to be unwrapped in front of you. A constant sterilization monitoring system is in place and verified by use of an independent lab to ensure that we are providing the cleanest environment possible to our patients.
Everything is included in our treatment fee: beginning and final records, x-rays, all appliances, and high-quality upper and lower retainers.
In addition, we stay up to date with patients for two years after the completion of active orthodontic therapy, to ensure that excellent orthodontic results are sustained. Also included in your fee are the orthodontic supplies you'll need to take care of your braces, including things like fluoride rinse, orthodontic toothbrushes, brushing timer, orthodontic floss, and sports mouthguards.
We are proud members of the BC Orthodontics Group, a highly respected group of academically-oriented orthodontists. Orthodontists in the BC Orthodontics Group follow 'best practices' in patient experience, patient care, and the use of top of the line technology.
