Why an Orthodontist in West Palm Beach?


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. Freedman & Dr. Haas continued her formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Freedman & Dr. Haas 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 West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.

And don't let price be a problem either! Freedman & Haas Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the West Palm Beach area.

Testimonials from your West Palm Beach orthodontist patients

I have been going to Friedman and Haas since my kids were little and they are adults now, and they have always been very professional and have always done great work. Now I use them for Invisalign’s (for myself) and they’re always available when I need them, if I need to come in and get something fixed and or looked at they’re always available everybody that works there is so friendly. They always do such a good job, and the entire office is a very clean environment.

It’s been five years since I wore braces but I still remember how helpful and caring they were every step of the way, they always were so happy to have me in their office every time I had to go in for a check-up. I highly recommend them!
