SD16 in the residential facility was having some pain with her braces. A wire was bothering her. So, she ripped out all the wiring. This does not seem like it was the best idea to me, but I don't know if it is a wee, little problem or a bug, bad PROBLEM.
An orthodontist visit has to be coordinated through the facility, so it will take a while. We are not sure how long ago she did it. It did not occur to her to tell us there was a problem so that we could take care of it.
UPDATE: Thanks for all your advice! I talked to an incredibly unprofessional person at the facility who did everything she could to get out of having to schedule this. First - 'orthodontists don't like to work on other orthodontist's work'. Yes, I know. That's why I want her brought to her doctor. Then, 'well, you live really far away.' Yes, I know, but I have been told that you guys will bring her out to specialists in my area. Then, 'well my person who does that only works a six hour shift and this would be three hours of driving'. Well, great because the appointment will be about an hour, so there will be left over time. THEN, 'September is pretty much booked - I schedule for three other girls'. No problem, let me know what days are open in the next six weeks and I will work with her orthodontist to schedule something. It went on an and on and on until I was screaming at her to just give me tube available dates. She said she would 'when she had time'. I asked for them within 48 hours, so we'll see.
