If you’ve been thinking about scheduling an orthodontic evaluation for yourself or a family member, you may wonder if your general dentist can do the job or if you should actively seek out an orthodontist. Here at Pioneer Orthodontics, we know that you want nothing but the best for your family, including healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Our practice is proud to offer expert orthodontic care to patients of all ages throughout our community! Dr. Annette Cserna is a highly trained and skilled orthodontic specialist who has been providing families throughout Lincoln and York with exceptional care for nearly 20 years.
Extra education, specialized training, more experience
Dentists and orthodontists start off on the same trajectory, with both beginning their careers in dental school. However, once they graduate, dentists will typically begin practicing, while orthodontists must embark on another few years of education specifically for orthodontics. Dr. Cserna spent 11 years training to become an expert in her field. That’s four years of undergraduate education, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontic residency training.
During this time, she learned about the way our mouths grow and mature, developed specific diagnostic skills, and worked on a number of case studies. She also received training in biomechanical techniques and how to successfully move the teeth with braces, aligners, and other appliances. As you can see, becoming an orthodontist is a lengthy process!
What are the benefits of choosing an orthodontist?
- a wide variety of treatment options—Pioneer Orthodontics offers traditional metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign clear aligners
- a customized treatment plan—Dr. Cserna will base this on your specific needs, lifestyle, and the desired results
- a more efficient treatment process—orthodontics is our main focus, which means we can produce the best possible outcome, particularly in complex or severe cases
