Three Generations of Healthcare Providers

The Importance of Developing the Right Diagnosis

“Today’s schools of thought in orthodontics still debate between two variants of treatment regarding early childhood treatment (Phase I) and Adolescent (Single Phase or Phase II) treatment. Understanding when each is truly necessary is a key factor in developing the right diagnosis and ultimately rendering the treatment and caring services the patient needs. Here is where an acute sense and a solid diagnosis combined with ethical treatment planning yield desirable and timely results.

Also further beyond the common young orthodontic patients, more and more adults are seeking the wonderful benefits of a healthy smile, hence an accurate diagnosis of the more complicated and involved patients also require a true understanding of the meaning “Multidisciplinary Approach” I usually like to meet with local colleagues and specialists and discuss in detail the best treatment options in any particular demanding case. 

This is how I treat my patients.”
