Lakewood orthodontics
For Dr. Patricia Simon, orthodontics is not just about the smile. As one
of the few orthodontists in the country with formal training in the treat-
ment of skeletal discrepancies, she is trained to keep the balance of the
face in mind as she develops a treatment plan.
Her practice, Lakewood Orthodontics, is adult-friendly, upscale, and
amazingly fun, with office hours designed to accommodate busy people.
Dr. Simon’s specialized training is in orthodontic cases that require jaw
surgery, and that’s critical for many adults, who often require surgery to
correct the bite.
That’s not to say that her practice is geared to adults only. “Of course,
we love seeing the kids, too.
That’s a given,” she says. “But I’d “I use a team approach
rather that kids feel that they’re that involves the patient,
cool for coming to such a grown-
up practice, than to have the the patient’s general
adults feel like children.”
Dr. Simon’s future was clear dentist, and any spe-
from the moment she got her cialist involved in the
braces at age fourteen. By the
time she was in college, she was patient’s care. ”
