Dr. Gates has practiced orthodontics since completing his specialty residency in 1999. That challenging education and training provided him with a solid foundational understanding of the biomechanics of tooth movement, as well as the technical skills required to deliver quality care.
However, orthodontics — as with all areas of healthcare — is a constantly advancing field. Ongoing research yields new techniques and technologies, each of which has the potential to improve the patient experience and results. Through active pursuit of continuing professional education, Dr. Gates stays at the forefront of changes in the specialty.
