Meet Dr. Lindsey

Hey, friends! My name is Dr. Lindsey Koerich, and I’m one of the doctors here at Koerich Orthodontics. Thank you for visiting!

I grew up in the little town of Granite Falls, which is close to Hickory, North Carolina.

From Granite Falls, I went on to get my bachelor of science degree and dental degree in Chapel Hill at the University of North Carolina, and then onto New York for part of my post-graduate education at Columbia University.

Meet Dr. Leo

Hi folks! My name is Dr. Leonardo “Leo” Koerich, and I am one of the doctors at Koerich Orthodontics.

I grew up in the southern part of Brazil, in a city called Florianópolis with a large, very close family all living pretty close by.

I would never have thought that I would be the one in my family to leave the country and end up in North Carolina, but life takes us on some unexpected journeys sometimes, especially when you meet a special person!

Understanding the Difference: Orthodontists vs. Dentists

While both orthodontists and dentists play crucial roles in maintaining oral health, their areas of expertise differ significantly. Dentists focus on a broad range of oral health issues, including diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases affecting the teeth, gums, and mouth. Orthodontists, however, specialize in aligning teeth and jaws to improve oral function and aesthetic appearance. After completing dental school, orthodontists undergo additional years of specialized training exclusively in orthodontics.

This advanced training equips them with the skills necessary to diagnose, prevent, and treat dental and facial irregularities. Choosing an orthodontist like Dr. Koerich for teeth straightening is advantageous because of this specialized expertise, ensuring you receive the most effective and efficient treatment possible.

The Transformative Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment offers a myriad of benefits that extend far beyond just a straighter smile. Physically, properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. A correct bite also alleviates stress on the jaw joints and muscles, decreasing the likelihood of TMJ disorders and chronic pain.

Mentally and personally, the impact of a confident smile is profound. Patients often experience a significant boost in self-esteem, which can enhance overall mental health and well-being. Socially, a beautiful smile can improve interactions and first impressions, fostering better relationships and increasing personal happiness.

Professionally, the benefits of orthodontic treatment are equally impactful. A confident smile can open doors in your career, making you appear more approachable, confident, and professional. In today's visually oriented world, a great smile can be a key asset in job interviews, client interactions, and networking opportunities.
