The vast majority of practicing orthodontists enter residency straight out of dental school and never practiced general or cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Krieger is different from virtually every other orthodontist on the planet in his training, experience and awards.
As a nationally known cosmetic dentist for 20 years before returning to school for orthodontic training, patients came to Dr. Krieger to change their smiles with veneers or crowns. As a result, Dr. Krieger attended hundreds of hours of courses specifically devoted to the esthetics of the smile and the role individual tooth shape and form play in producing a pleasing smile.
Dr. Krieger believes that every patient deserves to have a smile designed for their individual case, taking into account their specific tooth shape and things like the movement of their lips and shape of their face. This individualized approach and the compilation of all of the aspects of dentistry that play a role is called “smile design” and you can experience it at Krieger Orthodontics.
Dr. Krieger has won numerous national awards, has been a published author in dental journals and textbooks, has lectured internationally and is arguably one of only a handful of orthodontists in the world who also holds prestigious fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
