Dr. Melvin Dillard, lll, Evanston orthodontist offers a wide variety of various orthodontic treatment options for children, adolescent and adult patients.  Our Evanston orthodontist, Dr. Dillard believes that patients of all ages can have a beautiful healthy smile.

Why Visit Us For Braces for Children/Braces for Adults?

While a straight and beautiful smile may be the most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment for many people, there is more to be gained than meets the eye. Crooked, crowded teeth are more difficult to clean and maintain, increasing the likelihood of tooth decay, gum disease and eventual tooth loss later in life. These problems can result in expensive dental restorations like caps, bridges and crowns. Improper jaw alignment and malocclusions (bad bites) can cause wearing of the tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing and TMJ problems like popping, pain and locking of the jaw joint. Dr. Dillard can correct these tooth and jaw alignment problems early so that the chance of these symptoms occurring is much less, all while providing you with a straight, beautiful smile!

Our Evanston orthodontist has completed four years of college, four years of dental school and another two years of dental specialty training in Orthodontics.  Dr. Dillard is a licensed Orthodontist in Illinois.   Read more…. 

 What kind of braces can I get at Dental Art Specialists?

Evanston Braces For Kids

Children should be evaluated for orthodontic treatment by the age of 7.  As the child’s “6 year molars” come in, things like crowding and cross bites can be evaluated. With early detection, Dr. Dillard can guide the growth of the jaws and the alignment of permanent teeth. Early treatment can simplify the orthodontic process.
