Orthodontists are dental specialists who are University trained in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. They provide a wide range of treatment options to straighten crooked teeth, fix bad bites and align the jaws correctly. While orthodontists are primarily known for straightening teeth, they can also assist with painful and misaligned bites, tooth movement caused by bad habits such as thumb sucking, and even some forms of sleep apnea.
This month, The Calgary Stampede was in full swing! At myORTHODONTIST, we celebrated with true Calgarian pride at the McKenzie Towne Stampede Pancake Breakfast on July 11!

Our team was thrilled to connect with each and everyone one of you!
