Patients Can Now Check Orthodontist Credentials Online
Date:5/3/2013

McKinney, TX (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

People seeking orthodontic services should take the time to check that the credentials of their caregiver are what they need to be. Packard Family Orthodontics encourages patients to make sure they check credentials. Dr. Packard of Packard Family Orthodontics is now part of a website that allows patients to search for an accredited orthodontist.

Choosing an orthodontist can be a very important decision, as orthodontia treatments are often complex and expensive commitments. Dr. Packard wants to help prepare patients for that decision with some suggested questions.

The first and most important question patients should ask is if the caregiver is a formally trained orthodontist. Such a caregiver has graduated from dental school, been licensed as a dentist and has then completed an accredited orthodontic specialty program of an additional two to four years of training. He or she specializes in the movement of teeth, the proper growth and development of the face and the beneficial alteration of facial bones in his or her practice. "Many general dentists, who have not been trained in an accredited orthodontic program, will take a continuing education course on tooth movement varying from a weekend to several weekends and begin to offer these services to their patients. Although licensed to provide such services, I think the patient misses out on the benefit of years of training and practical experience. It is a 'buyer beware' situation," suggests Dr. Packard. Patients can go to http://www.mylifemysmile.org and look up doctors to see if they are a member of the AAO. The AAO is the foremost authority on orthodontic treatment and has about 17,000 members.

What technologies do they use? Does the caregiver utilize all of the advancements in orthodontic technology such as self-ligating brackets systems, cosmetic options for orthodontic treaments, advances in radiology such as 3-dimensional imaging, etc. Patients will benefit from an orthodontist utilizing the most effective and efficient treatmnet tools and techniques available. Dr. Packard offers all of these technologies in his practice.

Patients can visit the My Life My Smile website and find Dr. Packard and see his background. For information about Packard Family Orthodontics, please visit: http://www.packardfamilyorthodontics.com.
