Meet Dr. Kyle Fagala, your Memphis, TN Orthodontist

Dr. Fagala spent four years studying Biology at Harding University, a Christian college in Searcy, AR. At Harding, he achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

It was in dental school at the University of Tennessee that Dr. Fagala developed an interest in orthodontics. Orthodontics seemed like the perfect way for him to combine his experience working with kids with his passion with his appreciation for the beauty of natural and healthy teeth, plus his borderline obsessive attention to detail.

Why an Orthodontist in Memphis? Orthodontist vs. Dentist

An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an orthodontist. Dr. Fagala continued his formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Fagala has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute an effective treatment plan.

Why does it matter if you see an orthodontist?

Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic problems. Dentists receive basic orthodontic training, which allows them to perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who do not need to see an orthodontist yet.

  • Seeing a specialist like an orthodontist may change your experience in braces by:
  • Providing additional treatment options.
  • Giving you more efficient treatment and visits because it is the office’s primary area of care.
  • Knowing that you’ll receive the best potential outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need addressing.
  • Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns
  • Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be splitting their time between you and more prolonged patient cases or emergencies that may come through their office that day.

You may think it’s easier to have your orthodontic work completed by your dentist. Convenience shouldn’t be a concern because you will only be stopping by your Memphis, TN orthodontic offices every six to eight weeks.

And don’t let price be a problem either! Saddle Creek Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Memphis, TN area.
