We are retired grandparents on SS raising our granddaughter since infancy & whom we adopted in 2007. She is now 17. Her 4 front teeth were overlapping. We were told she needed a 2 year treatment plan. Prior to end of plan the overlapping was corrected but now there was a space between her two front teeth. Our pymts were $150 a month & that was paid faithfully every month. She was in foster care prior to being placed with us so she was on Medicaid/no Ortho, but a benefactor gave a gift for orthodontic treatment thru the State for foster children and adoptees, but I would need a letter from the Orthodontist saying she was getting treatment. The office refused saying they didn't take Medicaid. I tried to tell them it wasn't Medicaid, but a GIFT and the State would be paying them DIRECTLY! They still refused. Braces broken again in 2 places; she's in pain! Asked them to remove braces, but they won't without $360 PLUS cost of retainers! I missed a few apptmts & they said I owe $1,200! How??

I would like to take a little time out of my day to inform any and everyone seeking true compassionate & professional dental care for yourself or a family member to look no further! If you have ever eaten at Chik-fi-la, you know that the staff gives you the best experience hands down in the restaurant business, right? Well guess what, at Smith Smile this past year and 1/2 has been one of the best experiences of my life. Dr. Jerry and his beautiful staff of women truly enjoy what they do on a daily basis and it shows through their fun energetic environment created for you, the client! If I had to do this all over again I wouldn't hesitate going back or even consider anyone else. I can honestly tell you that you will not be disappointed with your dental care or being treated as if you are the only person in the room. Again, Smith Smile is the Chik-fi-la of this industry in my opinion. Thanks Dr. Jerry and to your beautiful ladies for such an awesome experience!!! ����

I went for a consultation about three weeks ago. The women was very informative, and I felt comfortable after speaking to the doctor to start treatment. The staff in the back was wonderful! She kept me informed the whole time she worked on me. The office and staff have a very home feel to it. They have made an effort to know me by name and talk to me every time I come in. Not only is the work exceptional, but I enjoy the conversations I have while I'm there.

My daughter saw Dr. Yurfest for several years and wore an orthodontic appliance at night, which helped us avoid needing braces as she got older.

I actually enjoy going to get my braces changed because of the colors and the help they have to keep my mouth from being sore.
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.
