Informed Consent

For consent to treatment to be considered valid, it must be an “informed” consent. The patient must have been given an adequate explanation about the nature of the proposed investigation or treatment and its anticipated outcome as well as the significant risks involved and alternatives available. The information must be such as will allow the patient to reach an informed decision. Our docotors will explain all the benefits and risks associated with your treatment. For your convenience we also provide explanations to a few general questions about informed consent related to orthodontics on our website. Be advised however, that this is not a substitute for a conversation with our doctors.
