|Comment||thank you! I agree 100% with what you have said. it shows your professionalism. I did not know where else to go. I even have a friend who is a dentist but not for children. I am just at the point where I did not know where to go. We are about 90 min. from Ann Arbor. No one mentioned to us about going there. I believe we are going to the dentist in the area again to give her another try. the issue I brought up happened about 5 years ago. she was taking over the practice for a dentist who was very good but took his own life. My wife reminded me of this. If it weren't for the malignant hyperthermia episode I had it would be much easier to have procedures done for my children. is there a site that lists dentist's in the Ann Arbor area that you know of? or do you have any recommendations? THANK YOU Tony|
Answers by Expert:
Please limit your inquiry to questions about orthodontics (braces) and children's dentistry. I am both an Orthodontist and a Pediatric Dentist, having been trained in both of these dental specialty fields. Orthodontics is the dental specialty that treats problems of tooth, bite and jaw alignment using braces and removable appliances. Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty also known as dentistry for children, which deals specifically with the dental problems of this special age group from infants to adolescents. I am also experienced in Forensic Dentistry, the application of dentistry to law enforcement and identification using dental records.
I have been in the private practice of orthodontics and pediatric dentistry for over 20 years. Prior to that I served for three years on the Cleft Palate and Cranio-facial Reconstruction team at Children''s Hospital of Philadelphia and was an Assistant Professor of Dentistry at University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. I also served as a dentist in the U.S.Air Force, stationed at Andrews AFB in Washington, DC.
I am a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, as well as a member of the American Dental Association and the Dental Society of the State of New York.
I received my BA in Biology from Frankin & Marshall College in 1969, and my dental degree from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1973. In 1978 I received both my Certificate in Orthodontics from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, and my Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from Children''s Hospital of Philadelphia after completing a three year Teaching Fellowship in Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry in 1978.
