Dr. Giarrusso or Dr. Livanos are board-certified orthodontists. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.
To practice orthodontics, Dr. Giarrusso or Dr. Livanos spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).
Orthodontics students spend three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.
What's more, our orthodontists went the extra step and achieved board-certification, making them some of the best you could ever choose from.
