The most rewarding part is probably just the satisfaction you get straightening teeth, especially when you have a patient who doesn't like to smile because they don't like the way their teeth look, and then you're able to straighten them and improve their smile, and then they enjoy smiling after that.
Depending on your teeth’s needs, Dr. Whittet may recommend clear braces, traditional braces, or Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign aligners can be customized to perfectly fit both teen and adult patients. They straighten your teeth by gently shifting them for maximum comfort and swift results.
Dr. Whittet is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the Illinois Society of Orthodontists. When he’s out of the office, he’s spending time with his friends and family, checking out new flicks, going to the gym, and watching sports.
