Orthodontist vs. Dentist: Specialized Care for Your Smile

Orthodontists are the specialists you need for a perfect smile. While both dentists and orthodontists are essential for good oral health, orthodontists undergo additional years of specialized training in teeth and jaw alignment after dental school. This expertise is crucial for effective teeth straightening and bite correction. At Rio Grande Orthodontics in Socorro, our orthodontists use this specialized knowledge to provide focused and advanced care. Choosing an orthodontist for orthodontic needs ensures that you receive the highest level of specialized attention, leading to optimal outcomes for both health and aesthetics.
