HOW TO CHOOSE AN ORTHODONTIST
Choosing the Right Orthodontist
When selecting an orthodontist for yourself or your child, comfort and expertise are key. Start with recommendations from friends, family, or your general dentist, especially those with firsthand orthodontic experience.
Research the orthodontists' educational background and confirm their membership with the American Association of Orthodontists to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest orthodontic care.
Seek Multiple Opinions:
Consultations with various orthodontists are essential to compare treatment styles, options, costs, and to gauge the level of personalized care offered. Consider the convenience of their location, office hours, insurance and financing options, and who will be directly overseeing the treatment.
Specialist vs. General Dentist:
Choosing a specialist, an orthodontist with additional years of specific training, ensures dedicated and expert care in orthodontics, maximizing the investment in your or your child's smile.
