MEET YOUR STONY BROOK ORTHODONTIST
Andrew Everett, DDS
“Orthodontics is a rewarding combination of art and science that allows me to use my head, work with my hands, and interact with patients of all ages and backgrounds.
I‘m passionate about creating a smile that allows your personality to shine. I get excited when I see children and adults that are truly self-conscious and uncomfortable with their smiles because I know that we can dramatically boost their self-esteem and confidence!”
EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE
I attended dental school at Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine, earning my Doctorate in Dental Surgery.
After completing my general practice residency at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, I continued to my three-year orthodontic residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx.
During my time there, I served as chief resident and won the Herzberg Award, given to the top-performing resident.
Understanding the Role of an Orthodontist
Orthodontist vs. Dentist: Specialized Care for Your Smile
While both dentists and orthodontists are essential for maintaining oral health, orthodontists specialize in correcting teeth and jaw alignment. Orthodontists, like Dr. Everett, undergo additional years of specialized training beyond dental school, focusing exclusively on orthodontic treatments such as braces and Invisalign. This expertise makes them uniquely qualified to diagnose, prevent, and treat dental and facial irregularities, ensuring the best possible results for your smile.
The Comprehensive Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatment offers extensive benefits that go beyond just straightening teeth:
Physical Health Benefits
- Improved Oral Hygiene: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum diseases.
- Enhanced Function: Correct alignment improves chewing efficiency and speech, and can alleviate issues like TMJ disorders.
Mental and Personal Benefits
- Boosted Self-Esteem: A well-aligned smile enhances appearance, contributing significantly to self-confidence and personal well-being.
- Reduced Anxiety: Correcting orthodontic issues can alleviate the mental burden associated with dental discomfort and self-consciousness about one's appearance.
Social and Professional Benefits
- Positive First Impressions: A confident smile can significantly impact social interactions and professional opportunities.
- Career Advancement: Increased self-assurance from a great smile can translate into more confidence in professional settings, potentially aiding career growth.
