There are lots of orthodontic offices out there, so how do you choose one over another? All orthodontists graduate from accredited programs, so what differentiates them? Dr. Krieger spent 20 years becoming an accomplished general dentist before going back to school to pursue his dream of becoming an orthodontist. It means that when Dr. Krieger is treating you, you’ll benefit as he views your case through the eyes of both an orthodontist and accomplished cosmetic dentist who restored smiles on a regular basis. Dr. Krieger still mentors less experienced dentists and has lectured globally for more than a decade, so you know that he’s someone you can trust.
The vast majority of practicing orthodontists enter residency straight out of dental school. Dr. Krieger is different. For 20 years, 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.
