Ten Questions to Ask Before Getting Braces

Did you attend a full-time orthodontic specialist residency?

Orthodontic specialists are trained an extra 2-3 years after dental school. Just as you would visit a heart specialist (cardiologist) instead of treatment by your family physician, an orthodontic specialist will have the extra specialized training desired to straighten your teeth and correct your bite.

Did an orthodontic specialist treat your smile?

The vast majority in the dental field know that treatment from an orthodontic specialist is most beneficial to treat their own smiles.

Will you correct my bite/occlusion (by using rubberbands, etc)?

In addition to straightening your teeth, an orthodontic specialist will also fix your bite. An improper bite can lead to other symptoms such as tension headaches.

Will you place brackets on all of my teeth (including second molars)?

We position braces on your front and back teeth to ensure all teeth are aligned and to aid in the function of your bite.

Have you treated many cases similar to mine?

The orthodontic specialists at DN Orthodontics have successfully treated over 40,000 cases. We have received numerous awards, but are most proud of the 5 star ratings from our patients.

Do you develop your own treatment plans?

All our cases are specifically designed by each doctor without the use of a 3rd party adviser.

Do you place your own braces without the help of a lab?

Our doctors place brackets themselves which facilitates optimal outcome for your specific case.

May I speak to patients that have completed treatment?

We have hundreds of 5 star reviews on Google and Facebook from patients who love to share their experience at DN Orthodontics.

Have you completed all cases without the assistance of an orthodontic specialist?

Sometimes treatment not started by an orthodontic specialist is sent to an orthodontic specialist to complete because the case was outside of their expertise.

Will you create a smile that will be the best match for my face?

At DN Orthodontics we strive for 3 things:

  • Straighten Teeth (Front and Back Teeth)
  • Fix Your Bite
  • Create a Younger Looking Smile
