5 Factors To Keep In Mind When Searching For A Children’s Orthodontist

Many children require orthodontic treatment, but finding the right orthodontist in your local area can sometimes be a lot easier said than done!

Dr. Karpac is a children's orthodontist helping families throughout Dublin and Gahanna Ohio


Providing your child with orthodontic treatment goes so much further than improving the aesthetics of their smile, and it’s true that orthodontic treatment goes a very long way towards properly aligning teeth and jaws in a way that promotes long-term oral health.

Most children can obtain optimal treatment results within about two years when they get braces or any of our treatment options. To parents this type of treatment efficiency sounds fantastic, but a lot of parents struggle when it comes to finding an orthodontist within their local area that specializes in treating children.

Central Ohio in general is oversaturated with different orthodontic treatment facilities to the point that it can become very difficult to differentiate the good from the best potential providers for your family.

This is why we’ve developed this list of 5 factors that parents should keep in mind as they’re going over their best orthodontic facility options for their children’s treatment:


1. Overall Experience & Expertise


It’s always really important for parents to do their due diligence in terms of research about the best orthodontists in their local area. Dr. Karpac has been serving the Dublin, Gahanna and Greater Columbus areas for many years, and we’ve come to know countless families as parents have brought each and every one of their kids in for our specialized treatments.

Dr. Karpac has been a licensed orthodontist since 1989, and before that he was a dentist since 1981. Dr. Karpac has been practicing for over 30 years and has been a faculty member teaching future orthodontists for over 20 years at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry Department of Orthodontics.

It truly would be very difficult to find an orthodontist that is more qualified and experienced than Dr. Karpac, and our staff continues to learn from his commitment to maintain innovation from both a technological and customer service standpoint.

One thing that sets Dr. Karpac apart from many other orthodontists within the Dublin, Gahanna and Greater Columbus areas is his determination to always remain on the cutting edge of the industry, which is why he undergoes continuing education courses and attends industry seminars to make sure that JK Orthodontics always has the very latest equipment!


2. Treatment Options


Every parent that’s looking for orthodontic services for their child understands that they are in need of addressing their child’s serious oral health issues, and this type of thought process directly coincides with how parents should be weighing their options amongst orthodontic offices.

When you’re looking for an orthodontist, you’re always going to need to highly consider their available orthodontic treatment options. JK Orthodontics just so happens to have many different treatment options available for our patients, and one of our most innovative treatment options is Dr. Karpac’s patented Line-M-Up™ invisible aligner system.

There’s no doubt about it that orthodontic treatments have dramatically evolved throughout recent years, so you’re going to want to make sure that you and your child feel comfortable with an orthodontist’s particular available options.

There of course isn’t any kind of one-size-fits-all treatment option when it comes to orthodontics, which is why there are many different options that are commonly available.

All of us at JK Orthodontics are very proud of our treatment options because we know we provide the very best technology found throughout the entire industry!


3. Location


The location of your orthodontist is always a really important factor to keep in mind when your child needs orthodontic care, and this is because it shouldn’t be too extremely difficult for you to fit appointments into you and your family’s busy schedule.

JK Orthodontics has two locations, one in Dublin and the other in Gahanna. Although these locations are relatively close to one another, we’ve made sure that we’re capable of helping families and being as convenient as possible for them.

Another important consideration to keep in mind in terms of our two locations is that we’ll always be there for you and your kids when any kind of emergency occurs.


4. In-Person Office Visits


It’s very common for parents and children to come to one of our offices during their initial consultation, and this is always a good thing for parents to do so they can get a better idea as to what our office environment is like. Dr. Karpac also offers on his website www.jameskarpacortho.com a virtual office visit for the initial exam so that he can give you an idea of what is needed as well as a range of costs before you even come in!

These days a lot of parents are concerned about how healthcare professionals of all types are taking COVID-19 precautions, and you can be rest assured that Dr. Karpac and our entire team are going above and beyond to make sure that every patient feels completely safe, that we’re constantly sterilizing all of our equipment and surfaces, and that we’re limiting the amount of people that are simultaneously in our buildings.

When it comes to children’s orthodontics, we understand how being as safe and as comprehensive with our treatment is so important. And you can always get a quick glimpse into just how much kids love our office environment through our gallery!


5. Online Reviews


We’re very proud of the countless reviews we’ve received from our patients and their parents, and on selectbraces.com we have a 4.9 out of 5 star rating through over 83 reviews!

Online reviews truly are important when it comes to helping parents better distinguish which orthodontists are the very best in their local area, and this includes checking out social media pages like Facebook as well.

There are many different ways to get a glimpse into what it’s like to work with our team, and you can always get a firsthand glimpse into the overall quality of our work via our Before & After page!
