One of the reasons that I got into orthodontics was specifically because it keeps young families in the office. I have personally treated patients as young as ... Well, I've treated 6-months-olds, I did a frenectomy on a 6-month-old, but 2-year-old patient is actually a cancer survivor, believe it or not, and then I've done implants on patients that are in their mid-90s. The range of ages is wide and that's a nice thing about being a general dentist is you do see that wide variety. Doing orthodontics enables you to see patients typically starting around age 8, we start doing our screenings. You don't get done with treatment, oftentimes, until they're 14, 15, 16 years old. I actually have patients that I started treatment on when they were young teens and now they're bringing their kids in and that's always fun to see.
