Most kid-friendly dental offices have a pediatric dentist or an orthodontist. At OPD Smiles Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we’re lucky enough to have both! Many patients end up receiving orthodontic treatments in their adolescence and teenage years, so it makes perfect sense to combine these two dental specialties. When Dr. Russell and Dr. Michael Choy decided to go into the dental field and practice together, the brothers thought it would be fun to choose complimentary specialty fields, so Dr. Michael completed advanced orthodontic studies and Dr. Russell completed a pediatric dentistry specialization. Dr. Michael is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and Dr. Russell is certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. To earn board certification, both dentists had to complete advanced training, maintain continuing education, and show proof that they deliver exceptional work. You can trust these two brothers to deliver the quality of dental care your child deserves. In fact, the Drs. Choy know that most dental fears develop in childhood, so they go the extra mile to relieve children’s stress and help them to feel safe and comfortable in the dental office. In fact, many young patients actually look forward to seeing us!
You may not think that technology has much of a role to play in the quality of dental treatment, but actually innovative dentistry techniques and technologies have significantly improved the safety, efficiency, and comfort of dental care in the last several decades. In our Allen dental office, we use digital dentistry to streamline dentistry diagnosis and treatment planning, tracking your child’s dental development, and we even save some trees with our digital patient charts. Digital x-rays are also much safer for kids, exposing them to lower levels of radiation. For advanced dental treatment planning and orthodontic services, we even a have a state-of-the-art 3D cone beam scanner in the office.
If you’ve ever been to a dental office where you weren’t made to feel welcome, you know how uncomfortable that is. Kids who are still learning to understand their surroundings and make sense of potentially confusing and upsetting situations need to be treated with even more warmth to ensure they feel safe. Our team of dentistry professionals are committed to helping your kids understand the dental office and their treatments, so they never fear coming to see us. Instead, kids grow up enjoying their trips to the dentist.
