Would You (or your child) Like To Become An Orthodontist?

THE OTHER DAY, DR. MIDDLEBERG AND I WERE REFLECTING ON OUR CAREERS as orthodontists, and the reasons why we both decided to became orthodontists. We both love what we do each day here at Orhodontics Limited. I know there are lots of people in the world who can’t honestly say that about their own job—so, I feel really lucky to be able to say that.

Then, I thought about all of YOU, our valued patients, and how much Dr. Middleberg and I appreciate the trust you place in us and in our team.

Then, we starting thinking about our team members and how honored we feel to work each day with such talented, great friends.

I know that some of you are in the early stages of choosing your own career paths—OR, you may have children or grandchildren who are making career decisions right now.

If Dr. Middleberg and I can ever be of help to you—or to somebody you care about—in answering questions about an orthodontic career, please let us know.

One of the things we love most about being orthodontists is the mix between science, management, engineering, and artistry. Each day is different, and we love the challenges.

Another thing that Dr. Middleberg and I really enjoy is the continuing education component of what we do. Technological advances in orthodontics happen every day as techniques, materials used, and procedures become increasingly advanced. The opportunities to learn and improve are endless.

But most of all, the thing we probably like best, is the opportunity to help people and to make a difference in their lives. It may not seem like much, but the personal fulfillment that comes from being an orthodontist and helping people feel better about their smile is fantastic. Sometimes “feeling better” means “physically” better. Sometimes “feeling better” means “emotionally” better (such as helping someone have the self confidence to smile again).

Thanks again for being friends of our practice. And, once again, Dr. Middleberg and I extend the invitation to you or someone you care about to visit with us about a career as an orthodontist.

Here’s a short video that will help you learn more about an orthodontic career.

    My daughter is 10 and really wants to be a orthodontist. Is there anything I can do now to help? In subjects in school to pay close attention too. Any books recommended I appreciate any advise. Thanks Richard

      That’s wonderful news. Your daughter will need to not only get her bachelor’s of science, she will also need to go to dental school and then get her license. For now she should take as many math and science classes as she can particularly biology and anatomy courses. As for books, most dental books are too advanced for her age, but she should just keep up with all the kid science books she can get her hands on.
