Dr. Cain is the ONLY orthodontic specialist in Burnet and Llano counties. What many people don’t realize is that general dentists can legally perform some orthodontics but are not trained with the advanced education of a specialist that attends a full-time, 2 to 3 year residency after completion of dental school. After completing her residency, Dr. Cain also took the extra steps necessary to prove her commitment to excellence and achieve Board Certification by The American Board of Orthodontists. Only 5% of dentists continue their education to become an accredited Orthodontist, only a fraction of those achieve and maintain a board certification. Unfortunately, many general dentists who wish to increase their income by adding orthodontic treatment, or even focusing a majority of their clinic time on orthodontics, are not up front with their patients and even allow their staff to affirm that they are an orthodontist when questioned. Many will pay for membership in official sounding groups and go to weekend courses to add certificates to their credentials. As a consumer it is very confusing. Dr. Cain’s years of education, training, and experience allow her to provide the highest quality, efficient, and most effective orthodontic care to patients of all ages.
