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.
