Meet the team
As with any kind of medical treatment, the level of your doctor’s skill and training, more than any other factor, determines the quality of care you receive. Fortunately, SmileLife’s team of highly skilled orthodontists throughout El Paso, Las Cruces, and Corpus Christi have undergone the rigorous training that has earned them the title of orthodontist, a title reserved only for those specialists who have completed two or more years of additional post-doctoral education from an accredited university. In fact, only 6% of all general dentists pursue the training required to become an orthodontist. While many general dentists provide orthodontic services to their patients, only an orthodontist has received the highest possible level of training in the use of braces and other orthodontic appliances. Choosing an orthodontist for your braces is your assurance of receiving the best care possible.
