Opinions…everyone has them.

Just this morning, I put on a green shirt that I thought looked great – but my wife had a different opinion.

I changed to the striped one.

Opinions make us unique and make the world interesting.

Could you imagine how boring it would be if everyone thought the same way? There is hardly a day that goes by without someone asking me about my opinion of Early Treatment.

Many people come into my office in the hopes that I will put braces on their 1st grader - and while some of these cases really need to begin treatment early, MOST do not.

Orthodontist, Dentist, Oral Surgeon, Pediatric Dentist…they’re all the same, right? Wrong! Our patients have asked this question many times. It can be quite confusing, because unless you are familiar with Dentistry and all the different professions involved, it would be easy to think that one Tooth Doctor can do another Tooth Doctor’s job. This isn’t the case at all. There are nine specialties in Dentistry and Orthodontics is just one of them.
