The Benefits of Choosing a Local Orthodontist

You only get one smile, so it makes sense to want an expert orthodontist to care for your teeth. But you also deserve a caring professional who provides personalized and attentive care at every office visit. We’re often told that “bigger is better,” but that isn’t the case regarding your orthodontic care!

With corporate orthodontic offices becoming more prevalent, you may wonder why to choose a local, family-owned orthodontic practice over a corporate-owned office to give you a healthy smile. Let’s look at the differences between these options for orthodontic treatment and how choosing Sandifer Orthodontics can give you a personalized smile journey from start to finish. . 

What are corporate clinics?

In recent years, corporate dental and orthodontic clinics have burst onto the dental care scene and keep popping up in communities nationwide. Sometimes, these clinics are founded by dentists who join together under one roof. However, many are owned by large companies that hire dentists or orthodontists to provide services for them. 

These corporate orthodontic offices will employ one or more orthodontists who will come and go, so it’s common to see a different doctor every visit. This may take away from the personal experience and tailored service that a family-owned orthodontist can provide to you. 

Corporate orthodontic clinics can provide quality care, but some report feeling like just another number in most cases. When it comes to your health and well-being, it can be frustrating and uncomfortable to feel rushed, so it’s important to find a provider who always puts your best interests first. 

The benefits of choosing a local orthodontic office

The primary difference between corporate and family-owned orthodontic offices is the personalized care and attention to detail. Our team knows you by name and knows your story. When you choose Sandifer Orthodontics, you’ll see Dr. Sandifer at every visit—not a stranger you have never met. 

Our one-on-one approach guarantees you the time and attention you deserve while giving Dr. Sandifer the best opportunity to diagnose and treat your condition accurately. We’ll build relationships with you and your family throughout your treatment, ensuring you feel valued at every step. 

Choosing a private, family-owned orthodontist is a great way to ensure continuity of care. Since Dr. Sandifer and her team know you personally, you won’t have to go through your entire health history every time you visit our Jackson or Brandon office. This will keep your appointments running smoothly and always on time. 

When you choose Sandifer Orthodontics for your orthodontic treatment, you’ll receive a customized treatment plan for your unique needs. You’ll never find one-size-fits-all answers from similar cases, and our orthodontic team will take as much time as you need to explain the details of your plan and help you feel comfortable. 

Lastly, choosing a privately owned or family-owned practice like Sandifer Orthodontics ensures that the doctor caring for your family is the owner and stakeholder. Dr. Sandifer is an employer and a small business owner, as well as your practitioner. She takes great care in the service she provides, not only in the clinic but in each and every phone call and interaction with her team. From beginning to end, Dr. Sandifer and her team care about you and make decisions to best serve their community individually—not from a corporate viewpoint. 

Tips for choosing an orthodontist

Now that you know the differences between corporate and privately-owned orthodontic practices, you might wonder how to choose the best office. Here are some helpful tips for choosing an orthodontist in Jackson or Brandon:

Free Consultation 

When starting your orthodontic journey, you should understand what to expect on the front end. A trustworthy orthodontic practice will offer a free consultation to help you get all the information you need to make an informed decision about your care before signing up for a payment plan. 


You only get one smile, so you want to ensure your orthodontist is experienced. Dr. Sandifer has years of private orthodontic practice experience and is proud to create smiles for patients of all ages throughout Jackson, Brandon, and the surrounding areas.

Treatment Options

Orthodontic treatment is constantly advancing, so finding an orthodontist who offers the latest treatments can help make your treatment more efficient. At Sandifer Orthodontics, you can choose from metal or clear braces or Invisalign clear aligners to transform your smile in the quickest time possible. 

Convenient Scheduling

At Sandifer Orthodontics, we make it easy to schedule your appointment to fit your schedule. We even offer same-day treatment so you can start your smile transformation right after your consultation. 

Keeping orthodontic treatment accessible

Orthodontic treatment is an investment in your health, so it makes sense that you want to get the most for your money. You may worry about extra expenses or hidden costs with a private practice, but at Sandifer Orthodontics, you’ll get all of the financial information before we ever start treatment.
