Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children get a checkup with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.

As a local Bucks County orthodontic expert in early interceptive treatment, Dr. George realizes there is a critical period of time when a child needs evaluation for orthodontic related concerns. Early detection of some orthodontic problems is necessary to prohibit more serious problems later on.
