Meet Your Portland Orthodontist
I truly love my job as an orthodontist! I have built my practice on being approachable and doing the best thing for my patients. I love getting to know each and every patient on a professional and personal level.
I especially enjoy working with children and young adults to cultivate their self-image and encourage positive self-esteem. I have grown up in this community, and it’s truly a blessing to work here.
I opened Wiesemann Orthodontics in May of 2011. I’ve had the privilege of working with families from Northern Tennessee and Western Kentucky since 2007.
I want to provide the best orthodontic experience for my patients and their families. I’m grateful for all the encouragement and support of my teachers, family, patients and loyal friends.
I look forward to many years of creating beautiful smiles!
Why an Orthodontist in Portland?
Orthodontist vs. Dentist
An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist. All orthodontists are dentists first, but though not every dentist has the qualifications to be an orthodontist. Dr. Wiesemann continued his formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Wiesemann has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan.
Why does it matter if you see your Portland Orthodontist?
Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists receive basic orthodontic training which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.
Seeing a specialist like your Russellville orthodontist may change your experience in braces by:
- Providing additional treatment options.
- Giving you more efficient treatment and visits, because it is the office's primary area of care.
- Knowing that you'll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.
- Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns
- Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
You may think it's easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn't be a concern, because you will only be stopping by your Russellville orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.
And don't let price be a problem either! Wiesemann Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Portland area.
