Meet Your Livington Orthodontist

Dr Danielle Zeifman

Dr. Danielle Zeifman earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from Tulane University in New Orleans. Then, she graduated valedictorian at New York University College of Dentistry. She continued to study orthodontics at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Zeifman completed hundreds of severe orthodontic cases during her career, like cases related to surgical, open bite, crossbite, craniofacial, cleft lip, palate, and syndrome. She’s board-certified and experienced in many orthodontic techniques, like lingual braces, Invisalign, removable appliances, clear brackets, expanders, and temporary anchorage devices.

Why an Orthodontist in Livingston? Orthodontist vs. Dentist: An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist.

Not every dentist is qualified to be an orthodontist, even though every orthodontist starts as a dentist. Dr. Zeifman, like all orthodontists, continued her education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. She has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth, as have all orthodontists. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the necessary treatment plan for you.

Why does it matter if you see your Livingston Orthodontist?

Dentists receive basic orthodontic training so they can perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who don’t need to see an orthodontist yet. Specialists, on the other hand, receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic issues.

Seeing a specialist like a Livingston orthodontist may change your braces experience by:

  • Providing more treatment options, with a variety of braces or therapies to choose from
  • Having personal experience treating multiple cases that are similar to your unique concerns and anatomical characteristics.
  • More efficient treatment and visits, because it’s the office’s main focus.
  • Knowing that you’ll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have worse than usual bite discrepancies that need to be dealt with
  • Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.

While you may think it’s easier to have your orthodontic work done by your dentist, convenience shouldn’t be a barrier to seeing a specialist. You will only be stopping by your our office every six to eight weeks.

And don’t let price be a problem either! Zeifman Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Livingston area.
