6 - 9 Weeks

#1 Post by Crazy4Snow »

I called my ortho office today to schedule my first appointment because the day I got my braces I was so distracted I forgot to stop at the desk to do so. :oops:

Much to my surprise though, the receptionist said "well, the notes on your file said 6-9 weeks from the date installed". I picked week #7. I asked her if I went every 6 weeks instead of every 9 weeks would that mean I get them off sooner? :) She said no, that as long as I go between weeks 6 and 9 that I will "stay on schedule". :?

DAYUM! For a minute there I thought I was gonna get off easy! :lol:
