Meet Your Jackson Orthodontist
Hello, my name is Dr. Camille Sandifer, and I hope that you will join our orthodontic family at Sandifer Orthodontics in Jackson, MS. I want your orthodontic experience to be a very positive one and giving you a beautiful smile is my #1 priority! As your orthodontist, we will discuss all treatment options to arrive at the best plan tailored to you or your child. I will work with you and your general dentist to give you a healthy and aesthetic result. It is my goal to provide you with a smile that can boost your self-confidence and have a positive impact on your interaction with others.
As your orthodontist, I keep up with all of the latest advancements in the specialty of orthodontics. I am also board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, therefore, making every patient aware that I strive to obtain the highest standards in orthodontic treatment.
Why an Orthodontist in Jackson?
Orthodontist vs. Dentist
An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist. All orthodontists are dentists first, but though not every dentist has the qualifications to be an orthodontist. Dr. Sandifer continued her formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Sandifer has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan.
Why does it matter if you see your Jackson Orthodontist?
Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists receive basic orthodontic training which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.
Seeing a specialist like your Jackson orthodontist may change your experience in braces by:
- Providing additional treatment options.
- Giving you more efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office's primary area of care.
- Knowing that you'll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.
- Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns
- 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 easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn't be a concern, because you will only be stopping by your Jackson orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.
And don't let price be a problem either! Sandifer Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Jackson area.
