Introduction to the Orthodontics Program at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. By Dr. Garai

The Orthodontics Program offered by the Children’s National Medical Center offers a complete set of orthodontic services to children in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area.

The program combines the assets of its orthodontic residents with those of the Children’s National Medical Center’s skilled faculty. Faculty members oversee the work performed by the residents, and, together, the faculty and residents utilize the most advanced treatment techniques and materials available to benefit their patients. Children’s National has been on the 2011 and 2012 list of Best Children’s Hospitals, published by the US News and World Report.

The American Association of Orthodontists suggests orthodontic evaluation of all children by the age of seven. Compliance with this recommendation can allow tooth irregularities to be corrected at their earliest stages. If an irregularity is discovered, such as an improper bite, the program can offer oral surgery, periodontics, prosthodontics, and endodontics.
