    I feel so lucky that as an orthodontist I have been rewarded with a career whose goal is to help someone love their smile. By catering to my patient's needs I strove to discover the best orthodontic treatment options available. Starting with traditional braces, to offering Invisalign, in 2000, and Incognito Hidden Braces in 2010.
    Its great to be in a place that people choose to come to, and to help guide them in their quest to obtain a beautiful healthy smile.

What Is the Difference Between a Dentist and an Orthodontist?*

An orthodontist is a dentist who has two to three years of additional education beyond dental school, and is an expert in straightening your teeth and choosing the treatment option that's best for you. Orthodontists focus their practice on aligning your teeth. By limiting their practice, they do one thing and do it well.

A dentist, is similar to your family doctor, they are your trusted primary provider. A dentist has general knowledge of the different aspects of dentistry and provides a multitude of services. Dentist often refer their patients to specialist, like an orthodontist, so they can receive the best possible care from a person who specializes in that type of treatment.
