Silvers Arthur Dentist
As a long time patient, I can say that he is an excellent dentist. He is very enthusiastic about what he does, so much so that he will explain 3 or 4 times what he probably only needs to say once. If too much info is freaky, then I guess he could be freaky...but personally I want to know and understand EXACTLY what someone intends to do in my mouth! So for me, he is an excellent dentist, well trained and wishes his patients to be informed. He is much more advanced than a regular dentist in his training.

I have worked for Dr. Silvers for 32 years. Intellectually he is a genius. He has great compassion for his patients and expects those of us who work for him to consistently give our best. He is always up to date on the latest and greatest in dentistry. He does not take advantage of people and treats patients by the golden rule. You can't go wrong with Dr. Silvers. He takes care of my teeth and my family as well. We are all well satisfied with his gentle care.
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.
