Orthodontic treatment does not only help improve a patient’s appearance, but it can also improve a patient’s overall quality of life. At Dr. Kellyn Hodges’ orthodontic practice in Philadelphia, we take on a challenge of providing affordable orthodontic care that is customized to give each patient a beautiful smile that is in harmony with his or her face.
Dr. Hodges: “Orthodontics really can improve the overall quality of one’s life. Whether it’s a young child who is being teased or not as confident as they could be, who is not raising their hand in class or smiling in their pictures. Or maybe it’s an adult who has always wanted to have straight teeth and a beautiful smile, but was not in a position to do it. Now it’s very affordable, we have very low monthly payments, and we make it accessible to as many people as possible. There are some elderly who come in, they notice their teeth have shifted due to a variety of issues, sometimes tooth loss, where one has had a missing tooth for quite some time, and you’ll notice some shifting of other teeth. Sometimes it’s just natural aging of the mouth. And even though they are 65 plus, they want a nice beautiful smile. We are absolutely available to those patients, too. We make it a point to really identify what the best approach for your case might be. We take into account all that you present, all the things you say, and even some things you don’t say, because it’s our job as professionals to get you to the ideal. We here at our practice really take on the challenge of customizing treatment for the most beautiful smile as well as the most beautiful face, because orthodontics definitely affects the overall look of the face.
We really do love our patients. We love each other as co-workers, but we really love and care enough to do our very best in each specific case. Our patients tend to be quite happy and satisfied. They feel the love, they feel as though they’re in good hands, and that makes it all worthwhile for us.”
