The Derby Orthodontics Experience

Choosing an orthodontist is a very important and personal decision. Just as each patient is unique, so are their expectations. When you visit our office, we strive to make sure your experience with us is individualized to meet your needs.

Complimentary Consultation

Our initial exam is free and includes digital photographs and 3-dimensional diagnostic X-ray(s). Our goal is for you to leave your first appointment with a full understanding of your orthodontic treatment options, including fees, payment plans and insurance considerations. We do this because we know your time is valuable, and we want to make exploring your orthodontic options as easy as possible! Call us at any time to set up an appointment to see if orthodontic treatment is right for you.

Dr. Snider and Dr. Nguyen are Orthodontic Specialists

While many dental professionals provide orthodontic care, Dr. Snider and Dr. Nguyen have obtained years of specialty training and limits their practice exclusively to orthodontic care. As a result, they focus 100% of their energy on staying at the leading-edge of orthodontic treatment, ensuring you achieve the most optimal and efficient treatment outcome. Additionally, we communicate our plan for your treatment with your family dentist to create a team effort focused on your dental health.

Personal Attention

You can rest assured that at every regularly scheduled appointment you will be seen by Dr. Snider or Dr. Nguyen! They use their specialized knowledge and experience to ensure that your treatment is progressing properly, and it also gives you the confidence to know any questions or concerns will be addressed when you need them to be. In addition, placement of the orthodontic brackets will be performed by Dr. Snider or Dr. Nguyen, not an orthodontic assistant. We feel this is essential to achieving the best result for you.

Superior Customer Service

Because orthodontics is generally a process that can take from several months to several years, our team realizes that providing a high level of customer service is extremely important. We pride ourselves on running "on-time" and never expect any of our patients to have long waits to be seen ~ most patients are seen at or even before their scheduled appointment time!  While many offices pay lip service to customer service, you'll quickly realize that we actually mean it. Getting to know our patients and families is important to us!  We value everyone walking through our doors and treat each person like friends and family!

Cutting-Edge Technology

We are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of care using the latest state-of-the-art technology. Our digital X-rays are faster than conventional X-rays and reduce radiation exposure by up to 90 percent!  In addition to i-CAT™ scanning capabilities, we utilize iTero intraoral scanners and 3-D printing technology, replacing traditional dental impressions with highly-accurate digital images. We are also a Diamond Plus provider of Invisalign® clear aligners, a clear alternative to braces that straightens teeth without the use of brackets and wires.

Office Amenities

Our office offers several amenities to patients, parents, and siblings while waiting through appointment times. Patients and families are welcome to enjoy our coffee and tea bar, game room, children's television area, and wireless internet access.  In addition, patients are welcome (and encouraged) to use our fully-stocked brushing station before each appointment!

Conveniently Located

We are located near the intersection of 63rd (Patriot Avenue) and Rock Road - just minutes from Derby schools, McConnell Air Force Base, and many surrounding communities. In addition to visiting our Derby location, patients of Derby Orthodontics may also schedule appointments at Trimmell Anders & White Orthodontics East Wichita (2143 N Collective Lane) and West Wichita (3933 N Maize Road) locations.

Automated and online services

Our patients have the option to receive text message or e-mail appointment reminders. Patients and/or parents are also able to make payments online from our website through our secure payment system. We also offer the convenience of automatic monthly payments.

Convenient Insurance Processing

Our office accepts assignment of benefit from most major insurance carriers. This means that you are not required to fill out reimbursement forms as you might at other orthodontic offices. This allows you to get your maximum benefit with no headache!

Meticulous Sterilization

We follow all OSHA guidelines for sterilization techniques, and we never cut any corners! Safety is our priority!

Excellence in Orthodontics

Orthodontics is more popular than ever. This popularity is due to the overwhelming success of improved treatments and technology. New technology produces better results with fewer visits and shortened treatment times. In some cases, we can eliminate months of treatment time for individuals. One example of recent improvements is nickel-titanium-alloy archwires. These have replaced the traditional stainless steel wires used in braces. This new technology provides our patients with a temperature-sensitive wire that allows for continuous movement of the teeth over longer periods of time. For our patients, this means enhanced comfort, decreased treatment time and fewer trips to the orthodontist!

Cosmetic improvements are also on the forefront of advancements in orthodontics. A popular choice among our patients is the ceramic bracket, a translucent material that camouflages the brackets on your teeth. Today, brackets are smaller, more comfortable and more durable than older-style braces. The smaller brackets bond directly to the teeth. If you are looking for braces without the "metal-mouth" appearance, you may want to consider clear ceramic braces.

The latest in invisible braces is Invisalign clear aligners created from sophisticated 3-D computer imaging technology. They are comfortable, removable, and invisible! Invisalign treatment is a popular choice for adults who are ultimately concerned about the appearance of braces during normal daily activities. Be sure to ask if Invisalign treatment is right for you!
