In Colorado Springs, Dr. Scott Suter has also taken the required educational and practical steps to provide top-notch orthodontic treatment. The path to becoming an orthodontist involves three steps: college, dental school and an accredited orthodontic residency program. Let’s take a glimpse at Dr. Suter’s educational checklist!

  • Accredited Orthodontic Program: St. Louis University

Dentist vs. orthodontist: where should you go?

If you have a malocclusion, the person you need to see is an orthodontist. While some dentist offices (general dentists) offer/promote orthodontic devices, such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect, they haven’t gone through the same courses and training as an orthodontist, who practices solely with orthodontic treatments that involve the use of metal braces, clear braces, palatal expanders, growth modification appliances, space maintainers, and invisible retainers.  Colorado Springs residents go to Suter Orthodontics for their beautiful smiles at an affordable price.
