Meet Your El Dorado Orthodontist
Inspired by his background in science and sales, Dr. Kevin Williams was drawn to orthodontics. He wanted to help people find beautiful smiles and new confidence, and he admired the close connections that a doctor forms with those they help.
In 2013, Dr. Williams opened his offices in Monroe, Louisiana and El, Dorado Arkansas, where he’s been hard at work ever since! Today, he and his wonderful team see hundreds of patients a week all around El Dorado and Monroe while giving them the beautiful smiles they deserve.
Why an Orthodontist in El Dorado?
Orthodontist vs. Dentist
An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist. All orthodontists are dentists first, but though not every dentist has the qualifications to be an orthodontist. Dr. Williams continued his formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Williams has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan.
Why does it matter if you see your El Dorado Orthodontist?
Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists receive basic orthodontic training which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.
Seeing a specialist like your El Dorado orthodontist may change your experience in braces by:
- Providing additional treatment options.
- Giving you more efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office's primary area of care.
- Knowing that you'll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.
- Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns
- Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
- You may think it's easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn't be a concern, because you will only be stopping by your El Dorado orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.
And don't let price be a problem either! Williams Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the El Dorado area.
