What is an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a dental specialist who has undergone years of additional training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. They are experts in diagnosing, preventing and treating malocclusions, which are problems with the positioning, spacing, and alignment of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontists, like Drs. Hickman and Habibi, help patients achieve beautiful, functional smiles through the use of braces, Invisalign® and other appliances.
