I am the owner of Bakersfield Orthodontic Dental Group & also the head doctor at my facility and i can assure you that the comment by Mar. M is false; Because we must do X-rays on a patient & because we deal with many sharps during our dental procedures & we are limited to smaller dental rooms we do not let parents into the room until after the procedures. i assure you ALL MY STAFF are RDA'S and a doctor is present during ALL DENTAL PROCEDURES. i am sorry that you were misinformed but all my assistants have their degrees posted in their rooms .

The best dentistry I have been to. Staff is super friendly. I have always been able to get an appointment is a reasonable time frame. My youngest had a dental emergency & they were able to accommodate us and make a scary situation less scary. I recommend them to everyone I know.

Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
