The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children visit an orthodontist by the age of 7 for a growth and development assessment. Club Tadpole is an exciting club for patients in our practice who are destined for full braces one day, but who aren’t quite there yet. Club Tadpole is open to all CCO patients who have completed a new patient exam and are seeing the doctors for growth and development check-ups.
Growth and development check-up appointments are important for monitoring a child’s growth and determining the perfect timeline for initiating orthodontic treatment. We want to ensure that the jaw is growing as expected, that teeth are erupting as anticipated, and that the bite is developing correctly. The cool part is that we can monitor growth before we even place braces on teeth! By starting early we can avoid unnecessary complications and possibly even shorten treatment time.
Club Tadpole also welcomes patients who are currently in their first phase of orthodontic treatment, as well as those who have completed their first phase of treatment with the second phase right around the corner.
Club Tadpole members receive their own special t-shirt, an awesome ID card, and access to special contests, prizes, and events. Club Tadpole members are also eligible to receive those important Tadpole Bucks at each growth and development check-up. Don’t miss out on all the fun! Join Club Tadpole at your next appointment. See you in the “pond!”
