Q&A with Lauren Olson of Innovative Dental
417 Magazine: What made you select Shelby as your 2019 Smile Makeover Contest winner?
Lauren Olson: We chose Shelby because of her selfless, sweet spirit. She is one of the warmest, kindest people I have met. You can tell within the first few minutes of meeting her. Shelby wasn’t confident in her smile, and we knew we had to give her a smile that reflected her beautiful character.
417: What does the timeline for the Invisalign process look like?
L.O.: The timeline for Invisalign is different for everyone. At Innovative Dental, we can reduce treatment time by up to 70% by the use of Propel technology. Accelerating treatment is a huge benefit to our patients. Shelby’s treatment will take approximately 9-10 months, as it is a more complicated case.
417: What makes someone a good Invisalign candidate?
L.O.: Almost everyone is a candidate for Invisalign! Kids, teens, working moms, you name it! The only real requirement is a willingness to commit to wearing the trays 22 hours a day and keep up with monthly visits to check progress. It’s amazing what we can accomplish through Invisalign.
417: What specific changes will someone start to notice throughout the Invisalign process?
L.O.: Throughout the process, patients may notice changes in not only the appearance of their smile, but also in the way their bite feels. Our team is there to walk our patients through every step, answering questions and making sure treatment is staying on track!
