With so many options available these days for orthodontic treatment, you may be asking why you should see an orthodontic specialist (like Dr. Alex) to straighten your teeth. The American Board of Orthodontics just released a fantastic video emphasizing that it isn't the tool an orthodontist uses that matters, it is his or her talent, education, and experience! We couldn't agree more! Take a look:
Dr. Alex is an orthodontist with 3 additional years of training beyond dental school and is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (a certification only achieved by a fraction of orthodontists).

Nickel titanium wires
Stainless steel wires and utility arches
Carriere® Motion Appliance
Temporary Anchorage Devices
Lower Lingual Holding Arches
