A word of caution about “DIY” aligner companies like Smile Direct Club. Orthodontics of any type without doctor supervision is dangerous. Your bite can be irreparably changed, teeth can be damaged and lost. Dr. Kathy has done extensive continuing education in orthodontics and Invisalign and supervision during treatment is of utmost importance to make sure your treatment is progressing properly. As a matter of fact, part of the contract you sign with Smile Direct Club prohibits you from suing them if anything goes wrong! It’s just too great of a risk to take.
Dr. Kathy is one of an elite group of general dentists who have completed advanced training in orthodontics. She treats every age from pre-teen to adults to straighten teeth and align their jaws. Why should you choose a general dentist for your braces rather than an orthodontist? Both will provide you with excellent care. But a properly trained general dentist will also be able to treat decay and gum problems at the same time as your orthodontics, saving you time.
