At San Diego Smile Pros, we have a deep respect for and personal understanding of the military community. As a veteran and owner of this local San Diego practice, Dr. Matthew Durschlag and his veteran associate, Dr. Kristy Hayes, want to support and honor those who serve. That’s why we offer several ways to make orthodontic care and children’s dentistry a convenient and affordable reality for military personnel and their families. Here are five to consider.

  1. Invisalign and Braces Military Discount 

Military families looking for Invisalign or braces in San Diego can get a discounted fee for their own or their children’s orthodontic care. How about the question of braces in the military? Some active duty members can get command approval for traditional or clear braces, but the majority will need to be treated with Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign and braces for family members qualify for our military discount as well, so let our team know if you qualify!

  1. Orthodontic Oversight Wherever You Are With Remote Monitoring

Busy military families can appreciate the option for remote treatment monitoring, which allows Dr. Durschlag to keep tabs on orthodontic progress from wherever you are and at your convenience. Whether you’re overseas or on a ship, you can continue to progress through your orthodontic treatment.

Remote monitoring options include Invisalign’s virtual care smartphone mouthpiece or the option to upload photos through our website. Images are sent to us through the app or website so we can evaluate your progress and track it closely. Our office can message you in the app or by email to let you know if your tooth movements are on track or if adjustments are needed.

  1. Orthodontic appliances that require fewer or shorter in-person check-ins

Modern orthodontics — like Invisalign and the self-ligating Damon Ultima™ braces we offer — require fewer check-ins than treatment with traditional braces. We’re all about flexibility at San Diego Smile Pros and will work with your schedule while still providing high-quality treatment that results in an amazing smile.

  1. High-Tech Digital Tools That Make Orthodontic Treatment Extra Efficient

We’re a seriously high-tech practice at San Diego Smile Pros. We use our in-office 3D printer to produce quick, accurate retainers. Our 3D iTero® scanner replaces traditional goopy molds and 3D renders your bite and smile. And our 3D CBCT x-ray unit allows for precise visualization of your teeth and jaws. 

For those who need a faster treatment option,? Propel® accelerated treatment allows for shorter treatment times for traditional braces and Invisalign alike.

  1. Option For Virtual Consultations and Appointments

Military families on the move can schedule a convenient virtual exam for an initial consultation or progress check-in that works best for their schedule.

Of course, you and your family are always welcome to visit us in person at our comfortable, newly-renovated office. Our San Diego location near Balboa Park has new, top-of-the-line equipment and tech to ensure the best possible treatment and experience. While in the waiting area, patients of all ages love to check out our giant fish tank and kids and teens gravitate to the games at our iPad station.
