Virtual Consultations at Gutsche Orthodontics

Virtual Consultations at Gutsche Orthodontics

At Gutsche Orthodontics, virtual *is* reality. We’re using the latest in telehealth technology to bring our practice to you! Dr. Stuart Gutsche and his team are happy to announce that they will now provide complementary Virtual Consultations. If you are interested in Invisalign or braces, here’s what you need to know about getting your orthodontic treatment started from the comfort of your home.

What are Virtual Consultations?

Virtual consultations offer a convenient and easy way to learn about your orthodontic treatment options from the comfort of your home and are available to patients of all ages. You can get started right away without having to place a call, schedule an appointment, or make a trip to the doctor’s office. This has become even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic where reducing unnecessary trips can help keep you and your community safe. During your virtual consultation, you will receive an assessment of your smile and treatment options. 

How can I get started with my virtual consultation? 

Simply visit to begin. Click this button on the bottom of the website:

Answer a few questions and upload five photos of your smile. We have a series of five specific images that will help us get started in understanding where your current smile, bite and oral health are at the moment. 

 Submit the form and you are done! It’s quick and easy to do—the whole process will only take you a few minutes. 

What happens after I submit the form on the Virtual Consult Page? 

Dr. Gutsche will review the information you’ve submitted and we’ll follow up with you via text, email, or video-conference to review our thoughts and possibilities for treatment. While we don’t have x-rays or digital scans of your smile at this point we can give you an approximate timeline for treatment, an idea of pricing and even an understanding of if you are a candidate for braces or Invisalign! 

I’ve received my smile assessment from Dr. Gutsche and want to get started on treatment—what’s next? 

At the end of your Smile Assessment, Dr. Gutsche will put you in contact with our treatment coordinator. Our treatment coordinator can answer any follow up questions and schedule you for a digital scan using our state-of-the-art iTero 5-D scanner. 

What to expect at your first in-person appointment: 

While we’ve met virtually, this will be your chance to meet the entire team and find out what a warm, welcoming and fun environment we have at Gutsche Orthodontics! We’ll also be using our 3D scanner to get super accurate images of your smile and we may even be able to show you a projection of your finished smile! 

Based on these scans we will plot a course of treatment and get things started! Our Treatment Coordinator will help you understand all things finance - we have lots of options to ensure that they don’t get in the way of your dream smile. Particularly in this time of uncertainty, we are willing to work with you to find an appropriate payment plan. 

What COVID-19 safety precautions does your office take for in-person office visits? 

The safety and well-being of our patients, staff and community is a top priority for us. We protect our team and our patients with the latest recommended personal protective equipment (PPE). We have all of the latest sterilization protocols in place to ensure that our facilities and clinics are ready for your arrival. All patients and staff members are screened prior to visiting the office and are required to wear approved face masks.
