We are specialists in diagnosing, preventing and treating dental and facial irregularities.
Orthodontists receive an additional two to three years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. Only those with this formal education may call themselves “orthodontists,” and only orthodontists may be members of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO).
The AAO recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. By this age, our orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present. That’s important, because some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if they’re found early. While orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, most orthodontic patients begin active treatment between ages 9 and 14.
