Our world is becoming increasingly convenient. Need a lift? There’s an app for that. Hungry? There’s an app for that. Low on coffee and toothpaste? There’s an app for that too. For better or for worse seemingly everything under the sun is at our fingertips. Even healthcare is being ‘disrupted’ and streamlined. But don’t believe the hype, here are 4 reasons to find a human orthodontist.
Orthodontists are experts.
It goes without saying, but orthodontists are doctors, routinely spending upwards of 10 years in school. And 10 years of intense study and cumulative learning are impossible to duplicate in an app.
You’re a human too.
Corporations see their patients as customers. Orthodontists see their patients as people. This means there’s a human relationship underlying the professional one, and an accompanying foundation of trust that’s built with regular care.
You get what you pay for.
There’s a reason mail order services are sold for a fraction of the cost of traditional orthodontic treatment, because they’re offering a fraction of the results. And healthcare is the last place you should be bargain hunting.
Simply put, one on one, in-person, orthodontist-patient relationships create the best results. You simply can’t replace generations of practice and years of learning with algorithms, apps or robots.
