We know you have a choice about who will provide your orthodontic care. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. Here are just a few more details that describe what we think sets us apart from other offices providing orthodontic care.
Why choose an Orthodontist over a Dentist?
Just as there are specialists in medicine (such as cardiologists, gastroenterologists, neurologists, etc.), there are specialists in dentistry. While many dentists offer orthodontic treatment, Dr. Beck is an orthodontist and dentofacial orthopedic specialist who limits her practice to orthodontic care and dedicates her professional life to correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. Therefore, Dr. Beck focuses 100 percent of her energy on staying on the cutting edge of orthodontic treatment technologies and advancements. She is also recognized as an ABO board certified specialist, a distinction earned by only 54% of orthodontists.
We Are Highly Qualified
Dr. Beck's years of experience in the orthodontic treatment of children, teenagers and adults; her awareness of congenital and inherited abnormities; her reputation for high quality care and superior aesthetic results; and her professionally trained and highly dedicated staff are the reasons for her exceptional patient care. Dr. Beck recognizes and prides herself and her staff as being on the cutting edge of orthodontic research and technology. Dr. Beck and staff are always learning and regularly attend many hours of continuing education each year and incorporate the latest research into their treatment plans and philosophies. Dr. Beck appreciates and has a thorough understanding of the long term effects of orthodontic intervention. She is cognitive of the impact of extractions and the impact on the aging profile. By using the latest treatment appliances, she is able to offer the most minimally invasive treatments possible.
Attention to Detail
Dr. Beck sees the patient at each and every appointment. The critical factor in determining the final orthodontic treatment is not the type of braces, but rather the knowledge and experience in how the brace treatment system works to obtain the desired results. In our office you can be sure Dr. Beck will individualize the treatment and personally place every bracket as well as any other appliance that will move the teeth or affect jaw growth. She treats children at their individual optimal starting point from a growth and development perspective, not based upon chronological age. The patient and parent are informed about the progress, questions are answered, and, when appropriate, there is communication with other health care professionals including dentists, oral surgeons and speech therapists. Dr. Beck is often asked by her adult patients to return a full smile with a more youthful profile. As a result of Dr. Beck's detailed attention you can obtain straight teeth and a healthy and attractive smile.
