I was very upset when I was told by my son’s orthodontist that my 8 year old needed extensive “teeth pulling†procedures to provide him a great smile.
It was explained to me that two juvenile teeth needed to be pulled to make room for an adult tooth that was growing in directly behind one of the front teeth.
I decided to go to Brighter Dental Care for a second opinion.

Upon entering the building the first thing I noticed was the children’s area. My son was occupied with the children’s’ TV. station, toys and books, while we waited for the Orthodontist to see us.
Once in the chair the Orthodontist immediately came in. As a busy mom it is great to walk in for an appointment and actually be seen at the appointment time! She introduced herself and asked about my son’s entire dental history along with getting X-Rays. She stayed with us the entire visit, and explained in great detail her opinion of the work that needed to be done. It turns out that both teeth did not have to be pulled. In fact, one of the teeth had a crack (which I learned had caused an infection). My first Orthodontist did not tell me this. This “infection†could have caused some serious medical issues for my son.
Her suggestion was to pull the infected tooth, ridding the infection and which would also allow for the adult tooth to move into the free space. If we pulled both teeth, a bridge would be needed because of the large gap.

I was very impressed with the Orthodontist all around. She was kind, patient, and explained the “dental technicalities†in a way that both my son and I could understand.
The friendly faces behind the reception area along with the cleanliness of the office are enough for me to recommend Brighter Dental to other mothers.
I would suggest that if you have any Orthodontic treatment needed, Brighter Dental is the place to start.
