A Holistic Approach to Orthodontic Treatment
An improper bite can cause a myriad of problems beyond basic aesthetic appearance, including crooked teeth, premature tooth wear, gum recession, headaches, jaw clicking, and in extreme cases, even tooth loss. If you or someone you know has a bad bite, just making the teeth are straight will rarely correct these problems!
The health of the head and neck area is determined by a delicate balance between several “systems.” These systems include
- the muscles and the soft tissues of the face
- the airway
- the jaw joints
- the shape and alignment of the upper and lower jaws, and
- last but not least- the alignment and fit of the teeth, otherwise know as the bite
As you search for the “right” orthodontist for you or a loved one, you should consider these two important questions regarding the orthodontist and his or her philosophy. Does the orthodontist take into account how their treatment plan will establish harmony between these systems and create balance between the bite and a stable jaw joint position? Does the orthodontist take a proactive Early Treatment approach to use a younger patient’s natural growth in order to decrease the severity of the orthodontic problem and, thereby, lessening the chance of permanent tooth removal or jaw surgery? As you may have guessed, the answer to both of these questions for the treatment we provide at White Orthodontics is a resounding “Yes”!
Dr. White has earned a reputation for taking a more comprehensive approach to orthodontic treatment. Every patient receives an in-depth evaluation, including a 3-D airway and jaw alignment analysis, a state-of-the-art jaw joint assessment, and a treatment plan to enhance the soft tissues and muscles of the head and neck. Our treatment plan will even consider how a patient’s face and smile may change as they age. That’s why we say a White Orthodontic’s Smile is Beyond Straight Teeth!

Read What Some Of Our Happy Patients Are Saying…
I am the father of 5 children & remember the first time I started looking for an orthodontist for my oldest child. I quickly realized I had no idea how to make sure I was selecting an excellent orthodontist. We did our best, but, unfortunately, we chose an orthodontist who gave my daughter a pretty smile but also a jaw with new clicks, pops, and discomfort as well as recurring headaches. Following a relocation, we found another orthodontist who uses unique techniques we learned were called the Roth Williams philosophy. Under this method, orthodontic treatment is used to obtain not only a pretty smile but also healthy jaw function — at the same time. My daughter had to be retreated, but this orthodontist had the techniques to fix the clicks, pops, and discomfort. When I moved to Virginia, I found that Dr. White is one of the few orthodontists in the region from the Roth Williams school. I was happy to drive 2 hours to Dr. White for my daughters and me. Dr. White and his team surpassed my expectations. Dr. White is amazing & gives 110% to make sure your teeth & jaw are perfect. And his entire team is highly competent & pleasant. We got great results — the first time! I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Love these guys!
– J. Newberger
We came to see Dr. White after completing orthodontic treatment with another orthodontist. We were so disappointed with her results which had her teeth in a very unattractive position. Our daughter was resistant at first which was understandable as she was in 8th grade. She now loves her new smile and is happy that she got braces “one more time” to get it right. Dr. White’s staff, especially Kristi, was very professional, and made the visit fun. Dr. White is a perfectionist who has made sure that her bite and smile are just right. The whole staff is very supportive, informative and helpful. Our experience here was so different from the other orthodontist who was considered one of the best in Richmond. There is no comparison to the orthodontic treatment my daughter received here. Dr. White has the latest treatment techniques. We have been so happy that besides my daughter, my son and I also are receiving treatment. I look forward to the day when my own braces come off and with the change so far, know that it will be a great improvement to my bite and smile. We recommend Dr. White to everyone we know who is considering orthodontic care.
