Understanding the Orthodontist Advantage

Orthodontists and dentists both play essential roles in maintaining oral health, but when it comes to straightening teeth, the specialized training of an orthodontist is crucial. Orthodontists like Dr. Faja-Fernandez undergo additional years of education focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. This expertise enables them to develop comprehensive treatment plans that address both aesthetic concerns and functional issues, ensuring patients receive the highest level of specialized care.
