Why a Long Beach CA Orthodontist? Orthodontist vs. Dentist

An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an orthodontist. Not every dentist is qualified to be an orthodontist, even though every orthodontist starts as a dentist. Dr. Joel Brodsky and Dr. Charles Brodsky, like all orthodontists, continued their education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. Dr. Joel Brodsky and Dr. Charles Brodsky, like all orthodontists, have spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth, including what to do to plan and how to perform the treatment plan that you need.

Why does it matter if you see Orthodontists In Long Beach, CA?

Dentists receive basic orthodontic training to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who don’t need to see an orthodontist yet. Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills required to deal with more complex orthodontic issues.

You may think it’s OK to have your orthodontic work done by your dentist, but convenience shouldn’t be a barrier to seeing a specialist. You’ll only need to stop by your Long Beach CA orthodontic offices every six to eight weeks.

And don’t let price be a problem either! Brodsky Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Long Beach, CA area.

Testimonials from patients of Long Beach, CA Orthodontists

We have been delighted with the work Brodsky Orthodontics has done for both of our children. My daughter had an offset jaw, meaning that she needed jaw surgery to correct her bite. Dr. Brodsky walked us through the entire process from beginning to end and even connected us with a top-notch oral surgeon to perform the jaw surgery. My son has completed the braces phase, and we just went for our retainer check to make sure that his teeth remain straight. Professional, thorough, efficient, and knowledgeable describe Brodsky Orthodontics. Thank you to both Dr. Brodsky's and their amazing staff for all of their help, giving both of my kids’ beautiful smiles! - jill

The best of the best. There is a reason why they are the Invisalign top 1% Elite provider. I have had great experiences at their Lakewood office. Also, they give patients opportunities to earn points for raffles, contests, etc. I always get compliments for my smile. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Brodsky. - Selena
