Your first visit!

Your complimentary initial consultation will introduce you to Dr. Ayers, our office, and team.

No Referral Needed!

While we welcome referrals from your general dentist, unlike a medical specialist, referrals are not required to see a dental specialist such as an orthodontist.

West Shore Orthodontics has been designed to provide you with a welcoming, safe and comfortable environment. Each clinical station is semi-divided from the adjacent one with a view of Langford Lake to the north, allowing for an open environment that still maintains privacy.

1. Goals

Discuss what you hope to gain from treatment.

2. History

Go over your medical and dental history.

3. Examination

A complete ortho­dontic exam including the taking of photo’s and x-rays as needed

4. Treatment plan

5. Finances

Sleep Apnea

While at the University of British Columbia, Dr. Ayers’ Master’s of Science degree focused on Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome in children and adolescents. The oral cavity is a crucial part of the airway, and there are certain red flags in growth and development that can indicate potential problems with sleep-disordered breathing. While an overnight hospital-based sleep study remains the gold standard of diagnosis, possible signs of OSAS will be screened for at your child’s initial clinical exam.
