Trommeter Orthodontics is committed to the health and wellness of our patients and our community. As such, we are restricting patient interaction to address only issues where current patients are in discomfort or instances where patient outcomes will be adversely affected, not just delayed. This goes into effect on March 18th . A staff member will be present Monday through Friday to answer the phones from 8:00-11:00am. Patients that desire to be seen during this time for an urgent orthodontic situation will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and recent travel history. Dr. Trommeter can be reached on his cell phone to address urgent issues during non-phone hours. His cell phone is 303-514-4568. Appointments between March 18 and March 31 will be cancelled and rescheduled for April 6th or later. We are currently keeping patient appointments that are scheduled on April 1st and April 2nd although we are not adding appointments to these days. This office schedule is a fluid situation and we will update our communication as we know more. We intend to add additional clinic hours in April to our normal schedule in an effort to minimize the disruption in our patient’s care. We appreciate your understanding as we work through this unprecedented situation.

What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

An orthodontist is first a dentist. After completing four years of dental school, orthodontic specialists will then complete an additional two to three year accredited residency program focusing exclusively on not only aligning the teeth, but also bite correction and function. An orthodontist has the expertise to offer a full range of treatment.

While a general dentist may offer one or two options for aligning teeth, this is not their specialty, and they may not be able to accommodate the patient’s needs in order to achieve the best results. A general dentist is trained to handle all aspects of dentistry, and may not be able to give your case the focus it deserves.

An orthodontist will select the correct treatment based on all available options and what will best suit the patient’s individual goals for their smile and lifestyle. An orthodontist also has knowledge of new and emerging treatments and technologies that you won’t find at your dentist’s office.

Orthodontists are better equipped to handle more complex cases, especially when bite and function are an issue. They can also best handle cases where early intervention might benefit a child in order to capitalize on growth patterns.
