Orthodontics is more than just straightening teeth. A Board Certified Orthodontist understands the complexity of growth development and facial form. Treatment plans include issues related to the jaw and bite, not just movement of teeth. Many dentists offer orthodontic treatment plans, but do not have the training of a Board Certified Orthodontist. A Board Certified Orthodontist is committed to the highest level of patient care including a comprehensive treatment approach to ensure quality work.
