Our Doctors – Orthodontics
All of our Orthodontists are specialists. They completed additional schooling beyond dental school to obtain the degree in orthodontics. It can take ten or more years of education including dental school and then two years orthodontic school at an accredited institution. Students in orthodontics school learns the skills required to manage tooth movement and guide facial development beyond the basic training received in dental school. Only orthodontists are eligible for membership in the American Association of Orthodontists.
“This has been my go-to dentist for my daughter, since her first visit at about 3 years of age. The staff speaks to their customers…the children. They explain what’s going on, what they’re going to have done and really go out of their way to put them at ease… which puts MOMS at ease! Dr. Ackerman is the same way. She has a gentle, easygoing and patient nature. We love this place!”
