Meet Dr. Krieger, your Carrollton Orthodontist
Dr. Krieger was a general dentist for 20 years before going back to school to pursue his dream of being an orthodontist. You benefit because Dr. Krieger will look at your teeth as an orthodontist as well as a cosmetic dentist. 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.
During his 20 years of Dr. Krieger's career as a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Krieger attended hundreds of hours of course specifically devoted to the aesthetics of the smile and the role individual tooth shape and form play in a beautiful smile. He believes that every patient deserves a smile designed just for them.
An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist.
Not every dentist is qualified to be an orthodontist, even though every orthodontist starts as a dentist. Dr. Glenn Krieger, like all orthodontists, continued their education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. Dr. Krieger, like all orthodontists, has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to perform the treatment plan that you need.
Why does it matter if you see your Carrollton Orthodontist?
Dentists receive basic orthodontic training so they can perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who don’t need to see an orthodontist yet. Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic issues.
Seeing a specialist like a Carrollton orthodontist may change your braces experience by:
- Providing more treatment options, with a variety of braces or therapies to choose from
- Having personal experience treating multiple cases that are similar to your unique concerns and anatomical characteristics.
- More efficient treatment and visits, because it’s the office’s main focus.
- Knowing that you’ll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have worse than usual bite discrepancies that need to be dealt with
- Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
You may think it’s fine to have your orthodontic work done by your dentist, but convenience shouldn’t be a barrier to seeing a specialist. You’ll only need to stop by your Carrollton orthodontic offices every six to eight weeks.
And don’t let price be a problem either! Krieger Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Carrolton area.

I think of one word when I think of the staff at Krieger Orthodontics - sincerity. All of the team members exude positive energy and it's evident they truly enjoy their jobs. It can be a downer when you are a positive person but don't always find your energy reciprocated so it's wonderful to find fellow friendly folks at Krieger Orthodontics! I especially chose Dr. Krieger for my orthodontic needs after I noticed all the incredible community service he and his team offer. I like to support individuals and businesses like Krieger Orthodontics that make it a big point to give back! - K
Let me express how impressed and completely blown away I was with the great personalized care we received at our first office visit. The staff was beyond friendly and we walked in the office to a sign welcoming the boys by name. Dr. Krieger was amazing, knowledgeable, and took his time explaining our personalized plan. I did my homework and called around and let me say I'm extremely confident we made the right choice for our family. I encourage you to schedule and do the same. What a true blessing to feel good about your decision. Glad to be part of the Krieger Orthodontics family and looking forward to our next visit. - Roxanne
