Choosing to have orthodontic treatment for your child or yourself is a big decision. Choosing an Orthodontic Specialist to provide treatment is even more important.
Only an Orthodontic Specialist has received advanced training in the Specialty of Orthodontics. This requires an additional 2-3 years of training beyond 4 years of dental school.
Orthodontics is a specialty in the Dental field. Choose a Specialist to provide treatment. An often used analogy is that you most likely wouldn't have your primary care physician perform an operation. You would see a Specialist that is specifically trained to treat whatever ailment you have. Same thing in the field of Dentistry.
Put your child's smile or your own in the hands of a well trained Orthodontic Specialist. You will be glad you did!
