Meet Your Ponte Vedra Beach Orthodontist

Orthodontist Office Jacksonville FL

Since 2008, Dr. Jason Rice has been a trusted orthodontist in the Jacksonville community, bringing smiles to countless faces. In August of 2011, he expanded his commitment to quality orthodontic care by opening the doors of Rice Orthodontics' Southside location. Not stopping there, he further extended his services to the Ponte Vedra community by inaugurating the second Rice Orthodontics location in the Nocatee neighborhood in February of 2018.

Dr. Rice is more than just an orthodontist; he's a dedicated member of the community who takes immense pride in fostering strong relationships with his patients and their families. He achieves this by attentively listening to their needs and concerns, ensuring that every treatment plan is tailored to the individual. His ultimate goal is to provide not just exceptional orthodontic care, but also a positive, welcoming experience at both of his offices.

Understanding the Difference Between Orthodontists and Dentists

Orthodontists and dentists may share similar educational backgrounds, but their areas of expertise are distinct. All orthodontists, like Dr. Rice, your Ponte Vedra Beach Orthodontist, begin their journey in the field of dentistry. However, to become an orthodontist, they must further their education for several additional years to gain the necessary licensure and certification. This means orthodontists dedicate years to studying the science and art of moving teeth, learning how to design and implement effective treatment plans for a variety of unique cases.

The Importance of Choosing a Ponte Vedra Beach Orthodontist

If your goal is to attain a radiant, straight smile that boosts your confidence, it's crucial to entrust your orthodontic journey to a specialist like Dr. Rice, your Ponte Vedra Beach Orthodontist. Orthodontists' extended training equips them with the skills to diagnose and manage more complex orthodontic cases. While dentists receive basic orthodontic training, allowing them to perform procedures like root canals and wisdom teeth extractions, orthodontists are the experts when it comes to aligning teeth and correcting bites.

Choosing Dr. Rice, your Ponte Vedra Beach Orthodontist, for your braces journey can enhance your experience by:

  • Offering a wider range of treatment options.
  • Ensuring more efficient treatment and visits, as orthodontics is their primary focus.
  • Guaranteeing the best possible outcome for your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite issues.
  • Providing personal experience in handling multiple cases with concerns similar to yours.
  • Offering quicker appointments, as a general dentist may be occupied with longer patient cases or emergencies.

You might think it's more convenient to have your orthodontic work done by your dentist, but with visits to Dr. Rice, your Ponte Vedra Beach Orthodontist's office only every six to eight weeks, convenience is not an issue. Plus, Rice Orthodontics is committed to providing affordable orthodontic care in the Ponte Vedra Beach area. Give our office a call for a free consult.
