Why an Orthodontist
“All orthodontists are dentists, but only *6 percent* of dentists are orthodontists.”
Orthodontists are specialists and have an additional 3,000+ hours of orthodontic training after dental school during their residency.
Comparing an orthodontist to a dentist is analogous to comparing a medical specialist to your primary care physician. Like the family doctor, dentists are excellent at covering a wide range of general issues. They can clean your teeth, fill your cavities, and assess your overall oral health.
Orthodontists are specialists with the latest tools, technology, and knowledge to straighten your smile. You should consult an orthodontist if you want to align your teeth and jaw.
Your smile deserves the best possible care, so trust it to an orthodontist.
