Why Choose an Orthodontist?

Every orthodontist is a dentist – but, very few dentists are orthodontists.

In fact, only 6 in 100 dental school graduates are accepted and complete an additional residency training to become an orthodontist.


Orthodontists are the specialists in moving teeth and aligning jaws. With an additional 2 to 3 years of specialized training in tooth movement (orthodontics) and guidance of facial development (dentofacial orthopedics), orthodontists are uniquely qualified to diagnosis, prevent, and treat tooth alignment and bite problems.


Our orthodontist, Dr. Bolton, dedicates his professional life to creating healthy, beautiful smiles in children, teens and adults. He uses a variety of “appliances” including self-ligating braces, clear aligner trays (Invisalign) and retainers to move teeth and hold them in their new positions. With his advanced education and extensive clinical experience, he has the knowledge and skill to recommend the best kind of appliance for your individual treatment goals.
