Did you know?
An orthodontist receives 24 – 36 months of additional training to specialize in orthodontics? During those 2-3 years of training they are taught how to properly realign crooked teeth into a fabulous smile. Orthodontists not only straighten the teeth, but bring them into proper alignment as well. To become an orthodontist you must first complete four years of dental school, then continue on to specialize. Make sure to put your future smile into the hands of a trained orthodontist. Just because it is advertised “orthodontics” doesn’t make them an “orthodontist!” Always check to see if they are members of the AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) as only orthodontists are members of this society.
Ask around! Talk with a variety of actual patients and see what their experience was like. Word of mouth is a very powerful tool! Ask the following questions:
|How comfortable were you, or your child, in the exam in regard to your specific problem and were the possible procedures explained well?|
|Does your dentist refer to a particular orthodontist and why?|
|How well did the staff address any issues? Were they friendly?|
|Were they compassionate?|
|How are emergencies handled when they arise?|
|Did the doctor receive his or her education in orthodontics?|
|Is your insurance accepted and if not, were you given the option of financing and payment plans?|
Here’s what our patients have to say
I LOVE coming here for my checkups! The staff is so nice. I feel so welcome and I love how colorful and decorative the office is. I love it here!!!
I am an adult with some shifting, and wobbly teeth. With a thorough dental examination, it was determined that braces could be a solution. Dr. Luddington is a perfectionist at applying braces to my teeth and I have actually loved them! With every adjustment my teeth are improving and feeling better. I like Dr. Luddington very much and I’m glad that we made the decision to do braces.
I love coming here because the staff and employees here are so thoughtful and kind. I would recommend Dr. Luddington’s office to anyone who wants a thoughtful and efficient office. I’m so glad we’ve chosen his office and a big staff thank you!!!
It is a very friendly office. They are always super happy and fun to be around. They are also informative about what they are doing.
I think the office is very fun and kid friendly. Also all the people here are so nice. I love coming here it is so fun!
I love how when you come here it feels like home. It’s not a scary doctor’s office, but a second home where they treat you like family
