It Takes a Certain Type of Person to Straighten Your Teeth
You only get one smile, and you want to make sure you’re in the hands of the very best. So, if you’re looking for perfection, when close enough isn’t good enough, make sure you see a specialist orthodontist.
Because it takes a certain type of person to decide to go back to school after completing university and working as a practising dentist. To spend 3 years and countless late nights in lecture halls and exam rooms and over 5,000 hours perfecting their craft. To become experts in straightening teeth and aligning jaws.
It takes a certain type of person to go from being a dentist to a specialist orthodontist. And isn’t that the type of person you want to straighten your teeth?
Orthodontists and dentists both help patients improve their oral health, but in different ways. All registered dentists have studied dentistry, which provides general training in the health and management of the teeth, gum, jaw and nerves. However, orthodontics is a recognised specialty of dentistry that focuses on facial growth, correcting bites and straightening teeth.
If you’re considering any form of orthodontic treatment – from clear aligners to traditional metal braces – you should always book a consultation with a specialist orthodontist first.
