- Why Dr. White?
There’s nothing more satisfying than to have spent over 22 years in school, and after all the dust has settled, and all the stars have aligned, to realize that you’re doing what you were created to do. My name is Paul White, and I’m the son of a dentist who taught me integrity above everything else, and to always do what’s right for my patients. As a family dentist, I noticed that many of my patients would return from the orthodontist with straight teeth, only to watch their teeth gradually shift, and re-crowd over time. I also noticed that many of my older patients who had braces as teens, now, not only had crowded teeth again, but, they also had receding gums, excessive tooth wear, and some even had clicking jaws and headaches.
I discovered that these patients all had one thing in common. They all still had an uncorrected bite or malocclusion. I knew there had to be a better, more comprehensive way to do orthodontics, and that’s when I determined to find out everything I could about the proper way to correct a patient’s bite. In 1991, I started my orthodontic practice with a singular mission to improve the quality of orthodontic care in the Richmond area. Nothing is more gratifying to me than to see a patient whom I treated fifteen to twenty years ago for bite problems and headaches who still has a beautiful smile and a comfortable, pain-free bite. I look forward to sharing my expertise with you or someone in your family.
