Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists

Have you ever wondered what sets orthodontic offices apart from the rest? I'll give you a hint. It's hard work and loyalty that the staff of an office put in to provide for their patients. Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists, or WOS for short, go out of their way to provide excellent care and the most updated technology available in orthodontic treatment.

If you happen to be in need of any orthodontic treatment, WOS provides a great start for your path to a beautiful smile. At www.wiregrassortho.com you can take a virtual tour of the office, become familiarized with the staff, and even learn a little background information about the doctor.

Dr. John Howell offers a full one on one consultation (including an X-ray) at no charge for first time visitors. He believes in making his patients happy and will give you a very clear and honest diagnosis. According to www.localyahoo.com, one lady's review exclaimed, "I was able to ask a question and not feel like I was being rushed." She also mentioned how helpful his assistants were in answering any further questions she had.

Furthermore, according to www.wiregrassortho.com WOS's mission statement is "We strive to provide the highest quality care to every patient while making the patients' experience in our office as enjoyable as possible. We constantly work to respect our patients' time by optimizing total treatment time while minimizing wait time in our office. This is accomplished by attention to detail, incorporating new technology and continuing education. We aim to have a fun, friendly, and professional environment for both patients and staff.

Once you have begun treatment with the friendly staff you will become a part of a big family. At WOS it's more than just an orthodontic experience. It's our life and we take pride in making our guests feel at home. Don't feel out of place if we happen to call you by name or even remember a little detail about you such as, your birthday. After all we think of you as family.

We offer two waiting rooms for adults and children and even a gaming center for everyone to enjoy. Although if you're a patient you probably won't get to play for very long since patients are seated as soon as chairs become available. You are more than welcome to stay after your appointment and play till your heart's content.

We also offer great incentives during your treatment. When you begin treatment you are given a WOS t-shirt and each month prizes are given away to whomever's name is drawn out of a box containing the names of participants in wearing t-shirts to appointments. Kids are also given the opportunity to receive a free North Face book bag when starting treatment!

Although our office is about fun, it is also about getting the best orthodontic treatment possible. Our relationship assistant works side by side with Dr. Howell to ensure your care is held to the highest standards. While Dr. Howell is always continuing his education so are our assistants. This group of girls works hard to ensure that treatment goes as smooth as possible and that no problems arise for any patient. They take time and special care with each patient and cater to any needs one may have. Everyone at Wiregrass Orthodontics is continuously trying to improve our patient's treatment.

One patient, Paige B., who has received treatment from 3 orthodontists and ended treatment with Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists, stated, "Well, first of all, Dr. Howell is the best Orthodontist I have ever had. I've been through several. The office is always very clean and it’s fast. I never had to wait." This is yet another reason we strive to do our best for our patients.

As Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists works to ensure happiness in our patients, we work to diligently to provide the best orthodontic treatment. If one day you notice something is just not how you want it with your smile, come see us. We will be more than happy to welcome you into our growing family!
