Now that we have settled the number one obstacle of why many people don’t get braces for themselves or their kids; let’s talk about why you should consider Lakes Orthodontist as for all your orthodontic treatments. For starters, Dr. Crespi is an ABO certified orthodontist; this means she has about twice the qualification of a general dentist and is the most qualifeid specialist to treat your orthodontic needs.   It is also good to point out that while many dentists who offer products such as Invisalign and call themselves cosmetic dentist are simply a general dentist. The popular ” cosmetic dentist ” designation is one that is self-assigned because there is no such specialty sanctioned by the American Dental Association. On the other hand, an orthodontist is a dental specialist who has taken the required extra curriculum, training, and certification to prescribe orthodontic treatments. Therefore, if you need braces or Invisalign then make sure you go to the smile specialist, Lakes Orthodontics and smile with confidence.

What is a Board Certified Orthodontist?

Why is a Board Certified Orthodontist the #1 choice for my orthodontic treatment?

We often hear the question, ” Who is the best person to help me with my kid’s braces or my Invisalign treatment?  Another FAQ is “How do I know if my doctor is trained to handle my braces or Invisalign treatment?

When it comes to choosing a doctor to treat your orthodontic needs it is extremely important that your doctor has the education and experience to properly diagnose and design a treatment that will end with you having a beautiful smile.  There is no better orthodontist to diagnose and treat your orthodontic needs than a board certified orthodontic specialist.

This means that the orthodontist is not only a specialist but has also gone through hundreds of additional hours of education to demonstrate their judgment, skills, and knowledge required for providing the highest level of patient care.  They have achieved board certification through the American Board of Orthodontics, the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and in affiliation with the American Association of Orthodontists.

At Lakes Orthodontics we are proud to say that Dr. Carmen Briceño Crespi is a board certified orthodontic specialist.  Dr. Crespi is not only board certified by the ABO but she also graduated #1 from The University of Florida Dental School (Magna Cum Laude) and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards in orthodontics including the Milo Hellman Research Award which is given to one orthodontist per year as the highest award in all of orthodontics.  Her success has continued beyond the classroom as she is also an attending faculty member at Miami Children’s Hospital running the Orthodontic Curriculum for the Pediatric Dental Residents.

In short, you simply cannot find a more highly educated and decorated orthodontist than Dr. Carmen Briceño Crespi. So if you are looking for the very best orthodontist in Miami then call Lakes Orthodontics today and schedule a complimentary consultation.
