Why Choose an Orthodontist?

Simply put, an orthodontist is a specialist: Dr. Whitney received an additional three years of education, and is an expert in not just straightening your teeth, but also in choosing a comprehensive treatment option that is best suited for you.  We are not looking to offer you any short-cuts, which may compromise your health in the long-term.

 

An orthodontist has a broader scope in terms of treatment goals; an orthodontist is well-versed in understanding patterns of craniofacial growth and development.  Again, it's not just about the teeth: an orthodontist aspires to create facial harmony and health for your lifetime.  In addition, an orthodontist understands the bounds and scope of orthodontic movement and will work as a team with other specialists to give you the best care that you deserve.
