Successful orthodontic treatment is the result of teamwork. Achieving healthy, beautiful smiles requires a partnership that involves the orthodontist, the family dentist, the orthodontic staff, the patient, and the parents.

  • The orthodontist provides the expertise, the treatment plan and the techniques to straighten teeth and align jaws.
  • The family dentist helps make sure that teeth and gums stay clean and healthy.
  • The patient is the real key. To get the best results, the patient must follow the orthodontist’s instructions carefully and practice good oral hygiene during treatment.
