We couldn't be more satisfied with the care and attention our children get when going in for appointments. My 9 year old was seen for a yearly follow up to keep an eye on a couple of things before he gets braces in a few years. He was given tons of attention and he was included in the conversations regarding his care. The attentiveness starts from the moment we walk in the door. In a world where good customer service tends to be lacking, that's definitely not the case at Williamsburg Orthodontics. We have had one in and out of braces, one currently in braces and two more that will need them in the future. There isn't any other place I would ever take my kids for their orthodontic care.

Dr Wendell and his staff are professional in every aspect of the Orthodontic Experience. My grandson had teeth that looked like a widely spaced picket fense. Dr. Wendell not only achieved a beautiful smile for my grandson, he also made immediate appointments in cases where a wire broke or my grandson had any issue. Not only have we experienced a welcoming positive enviorment, the payment terms were very generous and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Wendell to any parent that needs braces for their child. In my case, my grandson actually looks forward to his visit because he is so warmly welcomed and the results of the treatment are excellent.
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.
