No it is not. Many of our patients are referred by their family dentist, but most are referred by family and friends.

More and more adults today are seeking the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile. In our practice 30% of all orthodontic patients are over the age of 21. Health, happiness and self-esteem are vitally important at any age. It's never too late!
There are four essential questions that the doctor will answer during the consultation:
The doctor uses the latest orthodontic technology: The Damon System, which greatly reduces the need for extraction of permanent teeth.
Treatment time depends on each patient's specific orthodontic needs. A minor correction could take 4-6 months, whereas a more involved correction could take 20-26 months.
Generally braces do not "hurt" but they do feel foreign at first and take about a week to get used to. The doctor utilizes the latest orthodontic technology: After certain visits, teeth may be sore for a few days and an over the counter pain reliever such as Tylenol will provide relief.
Orthodontic fees depend on the complexity of the correction. We will explain the exact cost and financial options during the initial consultation. We have many financing options available to accommodate your needs, and we will review each of these with you. We will also review your insurance information, help to maximize your benefit and we will file your claims for you.
Appointments are scheduled according to each patient's needs. Dr. Bovenizer utilizes the latest orthodontic technology: Most patients are seen every 6 to 10 weeks.
Yes! We recommend seeing your family dentist at least every 6 months for a thorough cleaning and examination while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Yes, once your treatment begins we will provide you with complete diet instructions and a list of foods to avoid. These include the chewy, crunchy, and sticky items such as ice, hard candy, caramel, nuts, taffy, etc. that can distort of break your braces. You can avoid extra repair appointments and reduce your time in braces by carefully following these instructions.
Excellent oral hygiene is a must with braces. Patients should thoroughly brush at least 3-4 times each day; after each meal and before going to bed. Once your treatment begins, we will provide special toothbrushes, flossing aids, toothpaste and mouth rinses to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
An orthodontist is a specialist in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. All orthodontists are dentists, but only about six percent of dentists are orthodontists. Admission to an orthodontic postgraduate program is extremely competitive and selective.
An orthodontist must complete college requirements before starting a four year graduate program at a dental school accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA). After dental school, at least two or three academic years of advanced specialty education in an ADA-accredited orthodontic program are required to be an orthodontist. The program includes advanced education in biomedical, behavioral and basic sciences. The orthodontic student learns the complex skills required to manage tooth movement (orthodontics) and guide facial development (dentofacial orthopedics).
