Orthodontists are so much more than just tooth movers.  While technically a branch of dentistry, the only thing orthodontics have in common with dentistry is that both work with teeth.  Your family dentist fixes broken teeth, cleans your teeth and generally keeps your mouth in good health.   Orthodontists are experts at positioning teeth in the growing and fully developed face and the overall smile which includes alignment and function (bite).

Our specialty includes “Orthodontics” and “Dentofacial Orthopedics”.  With the additional training every orthodontist receives above and beyond regular dental school (2-3 years and over 10,000 hours of advanced training), a specialist is best suited to treat your special orthodontic needs.

As a consumer of health care services, make certain that you ask your provider for clarity about the care they intend to provide to you.  If they suggest treating your orthodontic needs, consider asking one or more of these questions:

  • Are you trained as an orthodontic specialist?
  • Does your office provide basic dental care in addition to orthodontics?
  • Where did you receive your orthodontic training?

An orthodontic specialist can help you determine what type of treatment is best for you.  We use clear aligners (Invisalign and others), traditional braces (clear braces and metal braces), various appliances for orthopedic or functional correction (expanders, bionators, elastics, facemasks, many others), and lingual braces.  Each appliance is chosen with regard to results for you and efficiency in treatment.  As a result, the cost of Orthodontic treatment is specific for your care and not some “cookie cutter” price that everyone receives.

“Cookie cutter” treatment means that every patient receives the same treatment regardless of need.  That’s because your general dentist lacks the training and experience to provide a full range of options for you.  That’s why choosing an orthodontic specialist is so important.  Every specialist orthodontic office is set up to provide orthodontic care exclusively.  Every staff member is uniquely trained to assist in providing quality orthodontic care.

In a general dental office, the facility and staff only provide orthodontics part time.  As a result, they rely on medical device companies, sales reps and third party technicians to guide their treatment.  With an orthodontic specialist, you know that your care is being provided with your unique situation in mind, and every staff member and the doctor has the training to provide it with minimal influence from outside sources.

So, when the time comes for you to choose your orthodontic provider in Frisco, McKinney, Allen and nearby areas, make sure you choose a specialist.  This is one of the most important healthcare decisions you will make for yourself or for your family.
