I appreciate your question. Although I'm not an Orthodontist I researched your question and hope your find the information helpful.
On a daily basis, Orthodontists adjust dental appliances to produce and maintain normal function. They provide patients with proposed treatment plans and cost estimates.
A typical day for an Orthodontist will also include:
* Instruct dental officers and technical assistants in orthodontic procedures and techniques.
* Study diagnostic records, such as medical or dental histories, plaster models of the teeth, photos of a patient’s face and teeth, and X-rays, to develop patient treatment plans.
* Fit dental appliances in patients’ mouths to alter the position and relationship of teeth and jaws or to realign teeth.
* Examine patients to assess abnormalities of jaw development, tooth position, and other dental-facial structures.
* Diagnose teeth and jaw or other dental-facial abnormalities.

Sheila recommends the following next steps:
Orthodontists establish office hours for treating existing patients, consulting with potential patients, dealing with vendors and conducting other business. Many orthodontists keep nearly traditional American business hours of 8:30 or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays with a break for lunch. Some also work evenings and weekends in addition to a daytime schedule, or exclusively, to offer alternative hours for patients who can’t schedule at any other time because of work, other obligations or unexpected events.
