Would you trust a plumber to fix your car? Probably not, and neither would we! This is why docbraces believes that you shouldn’t trust just anyone to give you a beautiful smile. All of our doctors in all of our clinics are fully licensed Orthodontists. Orthodontists are specialists in their field and receive three years of additional education and training beyond general dentists. Orthodontists are specifically trained to identify any signs of improper tooth and/or jaw development, which may otherwise be missed by a general dentist, enabling them to intervene at the right time, with the right treatment – often saving you time and money down the road. We are committed to providing our patients with expertise in all orthodontic methodologies, ensuring the best possible treatment outcomes. Put your trust in a docbraces Orthodontist! As experts in orthodontics, we are committed to being at the forefront of treatment methodologies. Our Senior Doctor Advisors are held in the highest regard within Canada and internationally as thought leaders in the specialty. Our Senior Doctor Advisors provide hands-on support, training, and mentorship to all of the Orthodontists in our docbraces clinics.
