Dental Monitoring – The Future Of Orthodontics


Orthodontics is an exciting and ever-changing industry, with new technologies being developed every day. At Embassy Row Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with these advancements through continued education and training opportunities. Whenever new technology or techniques come onto the market, we evaluate each to determine if they will positively enhance our patients’ experience. 

Dental Monitoring is one of the latest systems to revolutionize orthodontics. This technology enables you to take regular photos of your teeth and upload them so we can keep track of your treatment without requiring you to come in for an office visit. 

Our goal is to accommodate busy families while still improving your oral health. Dental Monitoring allows us to follow your treatment as needed without impacting on your lifestyle. 

How does Dental Monitoring work?

Dental Monitoring is a mobile application that allows you to take photos of your teeth while undergoing orthodontic treatment. The app has a built-in algorithm that helps process photos to record how your teeth are moving at various stages. This allows us to see an accurate image of your teeth so we can ensure treatment is on track.


Dental Monitoring does not replace office visits; we’ll still want to see you every 12 weeks, but it will help us keep up-to-date on your treatment between those visits.

Step 1: Download the app

After selecting your orthodontic treatment, we’ll show you how to download the mobile application.


Step 2: Take regular photos

Over the course of your treatment, you’ll be required to take photos of your teeth and send them through to us via the app on your smartphone. These photos allow Dr. Hickory to monitor your progress and send you updates and instructions right to your device.

Step 3: Convenient care

With Dental Monitoring, you’ll receive the same level of attentive care from Dr. Hickory with the added convenience of not having to book additional appointments.
