    Allow me to make a suggestion.

    Make sure you pick the right Orthodontist, avoid the places that look like assembly lines. If there is a room lined with a bunch of chairs and the doctor hops between patients, it is likely that your child will not get the best care. The best orthodontists treat each patient individually, and provide their full attention to the treatment of your child's teeth. 9/10 of the assembly line places will view your kids as quick money, and will largely not care about their individual needs.

    Take this from my personal experience. My parents sent me to an assembly line style orthodontist (7-8 years ago), and my teeth are now ruined forever. The doctor also mocked me in front of other patients in the assembly line, and caused me to develop a fear of dentists that I never use to have, and still am working to overcome.
