Dentists and orthodontists both know a great amount about teeth and oral health, but only orthodontists have received extra, advanced training in orthodontic care. Orthodontists first receive a degree in dentistry before completing residency in orthodontics for two years or longer. Some orthodontists go even further than this and receive board certification, such as our Board Certified orthodontist, Dr. Maleeh.
Just as you would place most trust in a cardiologist with matters about your heart, a neurologist with your nerves or a dermatologist with your skin, you will want to trust a specialist to straighten your teeth. Orthodontists study the advanced techniques, materials and technology in the orthodontic field for many additional years beyond that of a general dentist, and they usually focus on just orthodontics at their practices. For the best orthodontic results, we encourage you to schedule orthodontic care with a specialist.
