Not all orthodontists are as good as others. Some have more experience, a wider range of expertise, use newer and less invasive methods, and some just take more time to make sure the process is going as planned. Finding someone to do great orthodontic work doesn’t have to be stressful, though, even though it is a huge decision to make. As long as you know the signs of a good doctor and check for all of them, you will feel comfortable with the one you choose.
