Tips On Choosing a Dallas Orthodontist for Your Child

Fitting braces on kids can be more complicated than fitting them on adults because of the fact that children’s teeth are still growing. This makes it all the more important to choose a good Dallas orthodontist with adequate experience in pediatric orthodontics because they will be seeing your child for many more years to come. Look no further than the talented Dr. Ragan in Dallas!

Dentists collaborate with orthodontists and have the chance of assessing the quality of work done by the orthodontist during routine dental checkups. It is usually a wise idea to ask for references from your family dentist because they have a higher likelihood of knowing a good orthodontist. But this won’t be necessary once you hear about all of the benefits of seeing Dr. Ragan and his team.

The General Dentist Council is the only licensing body that registers orthodontists. They make sure every orthodontist they license has the required dental practice that safeguards the safety of the client. Never choose an orthodontist that has not been licensed by the council.

Orthodontists are dentists that have specialized in orthodontics. Dentists have to complete a Master in Orthodontics after completing their undergraduate degree in dentistry. Thus, it is important to confirm if the orthodontist has a degree in orthodontics before you allow them to handle your child.

Each child’s needs are unique, so orthodontic treatment for kids is not one-size-fits-all. At Ragan Orthodontics, our orthodontist has over 10 years of experience in orthodontics handling both children and adults. He is also a member of about seven dental associations and councils within the state of Texas and nationally. He is a lecturer at Nova Southeastern University and keeps up with the latest advances in pediatric orthodontics. You can be sure that your child will be given the best care when you visit one of our three offices in Dallas. Contact us today to book an appointment for your little one!
