Tracking Your Orthodontic Treatment Progress with Skopek Remote

Hey guys, Dr. Scopek at Skopek Orthodontics and today we’re going to give you a little glimpse into what we do when we put you guys on Skopek Remote – our virtual monitoring system.. Most of our patients – especially our Invisalign patients, are on Scopek Remote. This is game-changing dental monitoring technology that enables many of your orthodontic appointments to take place virtually in the convenience of your own home.

As a result, Chynna and I spend a lot of our day on the computer meeting with you virtually rather than having to make you squeeze in appointments after school or during work hours. It’s more convenient for you and for us and, since we’re able to monitor you weekly, it results in a better outcome for you in less time than traditional orthodontic treatment.

Here’s just a little sampling of what we look at during your Skopek Remote appointment. Here’s a teenager that started last summer. Here’s where he started, you know, we look at how the trays fit, how the aligners fit. And here’s where it currently is. You can see teeth getting straighter, you can see that the aligners still fit, and it’s really pretty cool stuff. Again, we’re going to see all different angles, we can see how the teeth have gotten straighter since last summer, and see how those high teeth are moving down into place since last summer.

Even though we don’t see you in the office for sometimes months at a time, with Skopek Remote you’re actually coming in for an appointment every week. As we look at this every week, every place there’s a green or red circle up there, we’ve looked at your treatment. So thanks for your patience as we’ve gotten up to speed with this. We’ve been doing it for a couple years, but like any technology, there’s always some bumps, but it’s going great. Things are getting smoother and smoother with it. China’s doing an awesome job with it. She’s just killing it. I love it. So again, thanks for your patience and thanks for your support. We’ll talk to you guys again soon.
