A Dentist You Can Trust

At APDO, we know it can sometimes be difficult to find a dentist or orthodontist that you can trust. Thats what sets our doctors apart; not only are they highly-rated leaders in their field, but also respected members of their community, engaging in volunteer work and supporting many local schools and charities.

Ah, summer. Pool parties, barbeques, summer camps, vacations... summer is a time to slow down, take a break and soak up a little extra time with family.

Years ago, everyone’s braces looked the same.  Metal brackets and wires were the standard and there was little else available.  Today, state-of-the-art-technology and an array of different materials have given orthodontists more treatment options.

At APDO, we believe a practice is only as good as its doctors. That’s why we work with only the best doctors in Arizona.  All of our children's dentists and orthodontists are trained specifically in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics and are experienced in the latest technology, like SureSmile.

On a first date, in an interview, at a client meeting or at a party, what’s the first thing you notice when meeting someone?  If you said their smile, you’d be in good company.  More than 1/3 of Americans say they notice teeth first when meeting someone new.  Which means your teeth can make or break a first impression.

There are some things that just don’t mix well – oil and water, bleach and ammonia, toothpaste and orange juice…

How about braces?  You probably know there are some foods that don’t mix well with braces.  Certain foods can cause loose or broken braces, in addition to plaque and tooth decalcification. 

So what foods should you and shouldn’t you eat?  Well, the orthodontists at APDO in Scottsdale have put together a list of what does and doesn’t mix with braces.
