Confident Smile in a Comfortable Atmosphere
At Drabik Orthodontics, you will not find the typical “stuffy” orthodontic office that so many of us are sadly used to. Our friendly team members have taken the time to create a fun, warm, and welcoming space where patients of all ages feel right at home – no stress required! Building relationships is important to us, and we strive to make that clear from the very first visit to our orthodontic practices in Webster and Rochester.
Get Started on the Right Path
Like the American Association of Orthodontics, we recommend that parents bring in their children for a first consultation when they are near the age of seven. At this stage, little smiles have a combination of baby teeth and adult teeth, which makes it much easier to diagnose developmental issues and treat them early. Early treatment could potentially save your family a great deal of future costs and stress down the road!Learn More About Orthodontic Treatments

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!
Our team welcomes all calls from patients who want to know more about orthodontic treatments. While calling our office is always the quickest way to get the information you need, we know that some people prefer doing research or might be too busy. That’s why we’ve collected a list of commonly asked questions from our patients and their answers. Read on or give us a call if you don’t see what you’re looking for!
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
Firstly, you’ll want to define the things you find important, which can be a mixture of factors like location, hours of operation, insurance, safety, credentials, and tidiness. You’ll also need to know what kind of treatments you’re interested in, such as if you want Invisalign or traditional braces, or if you require emergency orthodontic care. Lastly, you should take a moment to get a feel for the practice, as you’ll want to be familiar with the team you’ll potentially be working with. Fortunately, our practice prioritizes every patient's needs, providing personalized care to help achieve their dream smiles. Be sure to read the team and orthodontist bios on the website so you can learn their backgrounds and credentials.
How Do I Get Emergency Orthodontic Care?
Of course, you’ll need to call our practice right away if you suspect you have an orthodontic emergency. One of our team members should be able to help you by providing detailed instructions on how to manage your situation until you can visit. However, if your condition is more serious, such as a broken jaw or difficulty swallowing or breathing, you should call 911 and head to the nearest ER instead. They may not fix the orthodontic situation, but they can at least minimize your discomfort. Once you’re stabilized and safe, you should be able to schedule a same-day visit with your orthodontist.
How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with an Orthodontist?
If you need a same-day appointment for an orthodontic emergency, it’s always best to call our office first. Sending an email won’t get you the answer you need as quickly. Additionally, a phone call is more effective at allowing our team to understand your predicament while helping you get the best care right away. Most practices will have an extra operatory (exam room) for same-day visits and emergencies. The primary goal of a same-day appointment is to evaluate your situation, alleviate pain, and create a custom plan for future treatment.
What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford an Orthodontist?
Even if you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment, the best way to avoid an emergency is to practice preventive care every day. Not only will you avoid painful issues, but you’ll also be able to save money in the long run. Still, if you need help affording treatment for urgent situations, dental insurance is a very effective tool to help cover a portion of the cost of your care. If you’re not under a plan, you can still consult our team about our affordable Family Discounts or alternative payment plans through Lending Club to help make your treatment more manageable.
