The Differences Between Dentists and Orthodontists By Top Rated Orthodontist In Holliston, MA

Sharing is caring!

The Differences Between Dentists And Orthodontists By Holliston MA Top Rated OrthodontistWhile both dentists and orthodontists in Holliston, MA are doctors and have made a career out of caring for teeth, there are many differences between the two specialties. Regardless of where they wind up in dentistry or orthodontics, both career fields require medical school after college, so that’s a minimum of eight years. It will be some time before a student is allowed to practice dentistry or orthodontics in most parts of the world, including in Holliston, MA.

 

As a dentist-in-training, one takes their medical degree with you on to post-graduate dental training. This is followed by a post-doctoral period where they increase the patients they see from three to ten on average per day, before being licensed. As a general dentist, the focus is on your gums and teeth, and the issues that can befall them, including tartar, tooth decay, and gum disease.

 

Now an orthodontist, like Dr. Alkhoury of Simply Orthodontics near Holliston, MA, is already a general dentist who went on to a 2-year orthodontic residency program. Orthodontists focus shifts to more advanced dental concerns, including jaw and tooth alignment, and bite correction. With assessments and x-rays, an orthodontist helps you choose the necessary appliance and orthodontic treatment available to bring about proper alignment of your teeth and jaw. Initially a meeting with an orthodontist at Simply Orthodontics’ in Holliston, MA will come by way of a dentist’s referral.

  • “I just wanted to take the time to give some praise to this office and all the staff. My daughter got braces today and everything went great. The staff and all the doctors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter was a little bit nervous about getting her braces and the staff made her feel so comfortable. A+'s in my book.”

  • I like the service we receive during my son's appointments. I love the fact that when we are early, 99% of the time we are taken early. Most appointments are very quick. This last appointment was bitter sweet. Usually his Dad brings him to his appointments but he had passed away three weeks previous. I was going to mention it while we were there but they had already known and everyone made a point to extent their condolences to my son. It was very thoughtful and I appreciated it very much. Thank you!
