In my time outside of the office I like to work out at the local YMCA, travel with my family, and learn about and collect art.
Over the holidays we like to travel to Boca Grande. It is a great old Florida town where we see many of the same families every year.
I graduated from my orthodontic residency in 1991. I moved back to central Florida and immediately joined Dr. Tom Nelson at his Maitland orthodontic practice. Dentistry is a great profession and orthodontics is the best specialty! The major change in orthodontics since I have been in practice, is Invisalign. It is a great alternative to braces with excellent results.
After completing orthodontic treatment the most important thing is to keep your teeth straight with retainers! Retainers are easy to wear and sometimes a few hours once or twice per week is all you need to do.
I had braces treatment when I was 12- 13 years old. At that time each tooth had a “band” and these were uncomfortable to place and they showed a lot of metal. Today, braces are smaller and Invisalign aligners are clear. Orthodontic treatment is better today!
