Orthodontist vs. Dentist: The Expertise That Makes the Difference

While both orthodontists and dentists play crucial roles in maintaining oral health, their areas of expertise are distinct. Orthodontists undergo additional years of specialized training beyond dental school, focusing exclusively on aligning teeth and jaws. This expertise is vital for effective teeth straightening procedures. Choosing an orthodontist for these procedures ensures you receive the highest level of specialized care. At Rio Grande Orthodontics, our orthodontists use their in-depth knowledge and advanced techniques to deliver optimal results, ensuring your journey to a perfect smile is in the best hands.
