All Orthodontists Are Not Created Equal. Choosing an orthodontist is kind of like selecting a parachute--the moment you realize you've made the wrong decision, it's too late to change your mind. The braces themselves are only part of the journey. It's also important to consider the quality of care, the relationship with the provider and team, the costs of treatment, and your expectations about the journey. When patients' braces are removed, their smile--the smile that was created through dedication and perseverance--will be with them when they do well in school, at their graduation ceremony, at their first kiss, at their first job interview, on their wedding day, when they greet their children. It will be with them when they celebrate any event in life. With decades of experience, Dr. Doug Depew wrote Change Your Smile, Change Your Life: Your Guide to Orthodontic Treatment, a guide on everything you need to know about orthodontics. Don't waste another second--improve your health by learning if orthodontics is right for you. "Doug Depew is an exemplar for orthodontists all over the world. Change Your Smile, Change Your Life is a must-read for anyone interested in pursuing orthodontic treatment." --NEAL D KRAVITZ DMD, MS.
