Orthodontist vs. Dentist: Specialized Care for Your Smile

Understanding the difference between orthodontists and dentists is key to choosing the right care for your teeth. While both are essential for maintaining oral health, orthodontists undergo additional specialized training in teeth and jaw alignment after completing dental school. This expertise is particularly crucial for effective teeth straightening and bite correction. At Rio Grande Orthodontics in Taos, our orthodontists use their extensive training to provide focused and advanced care. By choosing an orthodontist for these specific needs, you ensure that you are receiving the highest level of specialized attention, leading to better outcomes and a healthier, more beautiful smile.
