By: Michael McCarthy, Erika Hartman, and Careybeth Rivers

Your child’s smile is important. Poorly aligned teeth or jaws can affect your child growing up around peers, and even into his or her careers as they age. Significant medical problems, such as chronic migraines, gum disease, and infections can occur due to the lack of a straight smile as well. So, what’s the solution? Where does an orthodontist come into play?

The Smile of Your Dreams: Birmingham Orthodontics’ Guide to An Exceptional Patient Experience will teach you all you need to know about the inner workings and recommendations of an orthodontist, including:

  • signs you or your child need to see an orthodontist
  • how orthodontic treatment can impact your child’s social life
  • what you can expect from an initial consultation and exam
  • the best treatment options for your child’s problems

There is nothing more joyful than a child’s smile―learn what you can do to help yours obtain a great smile they can carry forever!
