Why An Orthodontist?


My Dentist vs An Orthodontist

People often wonder, how is an orthodontist different from my dentist?  An Orthodontist is a dentist who has completed extra years of specialty schooling in order to focus on the movement of teeth.   Your dentist is an expert at cleaning teeth, fixing them and replacing them when missing.

Top of their class

After 4 years of dental school, orthodontists have to complete an additional  2-3-year residency program.   This makes them a specialist in the movement of teeth.  Only the top dental school students are selected for this residency program.

Do it once, do it right

Orthodontists specialize in straightening teeth.  It’s what they do every day.  Why trust your smile to DIY or mail order companies and others without specialty training?  Would you let your primary care physician deliver your baby or do heart surgery on you?  Straightening your teeth is more than just a cosmetic process, its moving bones in your mouth — orthodontists know how to deliver great results safely and effectively.
