Smile With Confidence


June 1, 2020 - These last ten weeks have been an unprecedented test of endurance, resilience, and sacrifice for every household. As your family committed to “shelter in place”, my team and I thank you for making our families safer through your action. And likewise, the Thousand Oaks Orthodontics team’s families made the same commitment to your family and our community.

During our downtime at Thousand Oaks Orthodontics, we’ve never worked so hard. We’ve participated in educational webinars, and collaborated with colleagues. We’ve altered our reception area, expanded our PPE inventory, and implemented new CDC, state and local guidelines for infection control, universal precautions and social distancing. I want you to be rest assured that we have your family’s safety and well-being foremost in mind.

It’s A New Normal

What to Do Before you arrive:

  • Brush your teeth at home. Our tooth brushing station is currently closed to eliminate possible transmission.

  • Wear a mask, bandana or scarf to your appointment

  • Do not drink anything cold or hot before you arrive. We will be checking your temperature with a forehead scanner to determine if you have a fever of 100.4 or greater. If you should feel poorly or have a temperature, we will reschedule your appointment.

Arrival Protocol:

  • Call or text our office at (805) 585-3184 and let us know that you have arrived. Stay in your car or outside the building, nearby.

  • We will call or text you when we are ready for you or your child’s appointment. We ask that parents remain in the car to minimize the number of people in the office. This will assist us in meeting our social distancing and infection control requirements. Should a parent wish to accompany their child into the office, we ask that only one parent accompanies the child. The parent’s temperature and health questions will also be asked as with the patient.

  • Enter the building and come to our office door but do not enter. One of our assistants will greet you at the door.

  • The assistant will welcome you or your child into the office and to the Entry Triage Station where we will record patient temperature and provide hand sanitizer.

  • The assistant will then escort you or your child into the clinical treatment area to your chair.

Case Study - Narrow Jaw and Crowded Canine Teeth

Click here to see the full case study. Thousand Oaks Orthodontics recently completed a two year treatment on a male youth patient with a narrow upper jaw and crowded canine teeth. After an initial assessment, it was determined that one year of expansion and bone growth treatment, followed by one year of treatment using traditional metal braces would create optimal space for health eruption of upper canine teeth while promoting an optimal alignment and bite throughout the patient’s mouth.
