More than any dental specialty, orthodontics requires a team effort from everyone involved—parents, patient, orthodontist, and staff. Many orthodontic problems are quite complex, involving the growth patterns of the faces as well as misaligned teeth. Our orthodontists have undergone three additional years of university-based postdoctoral residency training in order to learn the special skills required to manage the complexities of orthodontic treatment.
