Meet Your Mt. Lebanon Orthodontist
For me, orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth - it is also about the relationships that you develop over the months and years of treatment with patients and their families.
At the end of treatment, you have enhanced a person's smile and their self-confidence, and in return, you get the opportunity to meet and know so many vibrant and interesting people.
Our practice's philosophy is to treat each patient as a unique individual. We develop an individualized treatment plan using the most innovative and proven techniques available.
We also believe in communicating openly and honestly when it comes to a patient's questions or concerns.
Being able to help improve a person's smile is one of the most rewarding things about my profession.
And while I get tremendous satisfaction from working with children, I have found that helping adults attain the smile that they have always wanted, to be just as rewarding.
Why an Orthodontist in Mt. Lebanon?
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. Sohn continued his formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Sohn 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 Mt. Lebanon 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 Mt. Lebanon 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 Mt. Lebanon orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.
And don't let price be a problem either! Sohn Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Mt. Lebanon area
