Bird Pediatric Dentistry
Such a great practice! Dr. Bird and her staff are just wonderful. My daughter is 3 years old and need to have some fairly serious work done. She had a pretty bad cavity that needed to be filled and seal with a stainless steel cap. This required general anesthesia- as any parent this was unsettling for me. When I was a kid they never put us under, ultimately they would pull it or just numb it. During the whole process Cynthia, the office manager was so thorough- from the insurance part of it to the complete run down of the procedure. She provided a complete folder with the anesthesiologist information along with Dr. Gulati and her background. I was continuously informed and never had any surprise. A couple of days before the procedure my daughters pediatrician had concerns- her opinion only. Cynthia offered to have the anesthesiologist call me. I was so appreciate- talk about the extra mile here! The doctor called to go over what he would do and calmed my nervous. It truly was the best experience ever- going out of there way to make sure I was comfortable. We are new to the practice and I have been welcomed in the warmest ways. The ladies even at the front desk were so kind to offer me tissues as I sulked when they took my daughter in the back for her procedure. Its the little things like this that make a difference. Thank you so much! You guys were amazing!

We saw Dr. Scott for about 5 years. My daughter loved the practice with all the TVs on the ceiling and fun toys. So, as a parent I was a bit surprised when we received a letter 'dismissing' my daughter from the practice shortly after I had expressed concern over a lack of appropriate communications to manage expectations (which Dr. Scott admitted to) and a desire to have the office better vet dental costs with the insurance company and provide a detailed statement. The lack of communication caused one visit to turn into three. When I expressed frustration at a situation that could have been avoided I was told Dr. Scott would follow up with me. That never happened and instead I received a letter dismissing my daughter from the practice and cancelling her upcoming appointment. Clearly, this practice is successful enough for the loss routine individual patients not to matter - which speaks volumes, as does the fact that Dr. Scott cannot handle any parental opinion or expression.

Braces by Bird
I love the team at Braces by Bird!!! They have been phenomenal in treating both of my daughter's and they have even worked with me on the payment of my oldest daughters' braces. They are very informative and speak to the kids as well as the parents and answer any questions that either one may have!!! That was the entire reason I selected them to begin with because they answered both of my daughter's questions thoroughly. I love the text and email reminders that are sent. My girls actually enjoy going to the orthodontist because it is fun for them instead of just another appointment. I will most certainly recommend Braces by Bird to all of my friends and family!!!

I would highly recommend Dr. Schmitt and her team to anyone. For 5 years, the staff have always gone above and beyond to make sure my experience there was amazing. Robin at the front desk always checks my insurance prior to my appointment, they return phone calls, are always flexible and are always friendly. I trust Dr. Schmitt and her team. Over the years I have had a crown and multiple fillings, each time I feel confident that Dr. Schmitt ensures the procedure is done correctly, that I am comfortable and always communicates the option to return if I feel discomfort. It is a warm, safe environment and I am beyond thankful for her and her team.

This is a very good place to take your child everyone that I met showed nothing but kindness and you can tell Dr. Scott is very good with kids.I was in need of someone to take care of my two year olds teeth, found out from another office that he would need some work done. He preformed a few root canals on my little boy, he did this in his office while my child was under anesthesia. Everything turned out great and my child is happy as can be. I live over an hour away from Charlotte but plan to take him back when it's time for a regular checkup.Thanks so much Dr. Scott

Braces by Bird
We have been with Dr. Bird for about six years. She, her office and staff have always been, helpful, friendly and have always explained what they are doing and why. We recently got braces on our olderst child and we couldn't believe how easy the entire process was. Dr. Bird explained everything to me and her insurance employee was also very informative and helpful, my daughter already can't wait for her first check up because the facility is so fun and the staff is very friendly!

His excellent care and general chair side manner with children is absolutely wonderful. Dr. Scott also has a caring clinical and administrative support staff which make a visit to Ballantyne Pediatric Dentistry a positive and meaningful experience for you child. A++++ Care for your little ones!!!

We have put two kids through braces in the past 60 days and both with Dr. Bird. She has been our kids' dentist since they first saw a dentist. Our eldest (15) fought us on the braces but Dr. B assured her they would be hardly noticeable using the thin wire on the upper teeth and today she returned from school really quite happy. And pain free (Advil only). And that makes the experience painless for us parents.

We are new to the world of braces but we sure did pick the right Orthodontist and practice. The entire process at Braces by Bird was just so easy…from the consults to the actual putting on of the braces, the questions we had and getting used to them, it all just fell into place. It made 2 kids getting braces on the same day feel right! Thanks for all of the support and kindness. We made the right choice!!
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.
