Braces require frequent adjustment, so you'll be going there a lot (usually right after school ends).
Make sure you pick an orthodontist that is easy to get to and does a good job scheduling so you don't end up spending a ton of time in the waiting room.
Somewhere nearby there is a great orthodontist who takes your insurance, is conveniently located, and is respectfull of your time.
Help him find you here!
If you have dental insurance, be sure to note what kind.
