Orthodontics for Children, Teens & Adults
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting bites, irregularities in the teeth and jaw, and addressing the misalignment of teeth. Many people seek out orthodontic treatment with the goal in mind of wanting straight teeth!
Orthodontics have advanced tremendously in the past decade. Treatment is now faster, more effective and more comfortable than ever. It's also never to late to start orthodontic treatment. Our Glen Ellyn orthodontist, Dr. Chong, sees patients of all ages to correct and adjust their smiles. With the use of orthodontic treatment we can address: misaligned teeth, crowded teeth, gapped or spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, cross bites and more.

The Importance of Seeing an Orthodontist
Orthodontists specialize in the alignment of teeth. Similar to becoming a medical specialist, such as a surgeon, orthodontists complete 2-3 years of extra training after dental school. These extra years of training and schooling give the orthodontist the tools and education to specialize in moving teeth and aligning jaws. While a general dentist may have a little training in orthodontics, an orthodontist has extensive education, training and experience that is unmatched for superior outcomes.
Our orthodontist, Dr. Chong, has a true passion for orthodontics. He attended the University of Illinois at Chicago for his orthodontic residency where he excelled at the top of his class and was the winner of the National Invisalign Award. Dr. Chong believes in employing the best in dental technology and orthodontic devices. This allows Dr. Chong to help create more accurate treatment, predictable outcomes and allows children, teens and adults to finish their orthodontic treatment in less time.
Dr. Chong is a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics and is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Illinois Society of Orthodontists, and Chicago Dental Society.
