Hickman Orthodontics
Hickman Orthodontics did an exceptional job for my daughter! My family has recently moved, and had the option to go to another doctor who was 20 minutes closer to our new house. We are so happy with the service and results that Dr. Hickman provides, that I will be driving the extra distance so my son can receive the same care as my daughter.

My overall experience with Dr. Cottingham was outstanding. As an adult choosing orthodontia, I was somewhat hesitant and unsure. Dr. Cottingham and her staff are outstanding in making you comfortable and confident in your decision.

Great customer service! Appreciate the office visit being on time and the professional advice. The follow through visits have allowed Dr Daviia to monitor my sons growth and provide preparation for braces.
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.
