Dentists have been providing high-quality care for many years, helping countless amounts of people achieve healthier, more attractive smiles. In some cases, dentists offer braces or clear aligners to help their patients finally achieve the smile they have always wanted. Because of this, more and more people are wondering if their dentist can do their orthodontic procedures. While dentists are skilled in their profession, orthodontists receive specialized and specific training that focuses on alignment issues and how to fix them.
Both orthodontists and dentists attend four years of dental school; however, to become an orthodontist, you need to complete an additional two to three years of an orthodontic graduate program. This intensive additional education provides your orthodontist with the skills and knowledge necessary to carefully and accurately diagnose and treat irregularities with your smile.
When you choose to receive your orthodontic treatments from an orthodontist, you are choosing specialized care. At Hamilton & Manuele Orthodontics, our orthodontist works with you to evaluate your unique situation and provide personalized treatment recommendations. And because Dr. R. Cree Hamilton has received specialized orthodontic training, you can be confident that his recommendations are conservative and effective in helping you achieve your ideal smile.
