Why, as a Dentist I refer to an Orthodontist.

[vc_row][vc_column][ult_animation_block animation=”fadeIn” animation_duration=”3″ animation_delay=”0″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][vc_column_text]“As a Dentist I refer to an orthodontist because they have an additional level of training in the movement of teeth that general dentists do not.

If braces were as easy as just putting some brackets and wires on and hoping for the best everyone would be doing it. There is a lot involved in moving teeth. You have to understand where they are when they start, how the bone is going to be affected, how the teeth will be affected, how the bite is going to be affected, etc…it’s a very involved process.

Orthodontists have that extra level of training and commitment to their patients to only offer orthodontic treatment in their office. This truly is the best way to get the results I want for my patients.”
