Making Appointments at our Vernon Hills and Gurnee Orthodontic Offices

Thank you for choosing Affiliated Dental Specialists as your premier orthodontic care provider in Gurnee and Vernon Hills, IL. We also offer high quality treatments like Clarity clear braces and Sure Smile to the surrounding communities of Lindenhurst, Libertyville and Grayslake, IL. Dr. Gary Klein and Dr. Thomas Lim, and their staff pride themselves on exceptional patient service, always seeing patients on time and making them feel comfortable and relaxed. Some appointments vary in length and time of day, depending on the individual case. Morning and early afternoon appointments are reserved for procedures requiring more time such as placing or removing braces. These appointments are 30 to 40 minutes in duration. We truly try to minimize the amount of time a patient will need to miss work or school for a visit to our office.

Office Hours

Please check our office hours because they do vary from day to day and are different at each location. We are open six days a week in two convenient locations. Patients can be easily seen in either the Gurnee or the Vernon Hills orthodontics offices of Affiliated Dental Specialists.

Orthodontic Adjustment Appointments

Orthodontic treatment, including metal braces, clear braces and Sure Smile, is sequenced to allow optimal treatment progression and to ensure that the best result will be achieved in the most efficient way. Once treatment has started, patients are generally seen during orthodontic treatment every 6 weeks and the visits are typically 15 minutes.

After their braces have been placed, most adolescent patients visit Dr. Klein or Dr. Lim, after school for adjustments. Afternoon appointments are reserved for the “after school crowd”. We also offer Saturday mornings and before work or school adjustment appointments as well. This type of appointment is scheduled for 20 minutes.

Emergency Information

If you have an emergency, we will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. We block emergency time into our daily schedule so we are able to do our best to stay on schedule and to minimize your waiting time. Thank you for understanding.
