Meet Your Beaverton Orthodontist

Dr. John Delplanche

I am always extremely honored when someone chooses me to be their orthodontist. I feel blessed to be doing what I love and want to share my passion with others. Helping other people enjoy their smile is what I love about my job and it is extremely rewarding to me. At my office, we genuinely care about each and every patient and welcome them like family.

I recognize that each person who seeks my advice for their orthodontic needs is unique, therefore I treat each person with a custom treatment plan. As a Board Certified Orthodontist, I have only the highest standards for treatment. The engineering mind in me looks at each case like a puzzle that needs to be put together to fit perfectly. I have been specially trained to recognize, treat, and prevent any orthodontic issues by straightening the alignment of teeth, correcting misaligned jaw structure and improving the function of your smile.

Why an Orthodontist in Beaverton?

Orthodontist vs. Dentist

An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist. All orthodontists are dentists first, but though not every dentist has the qualifications to be an orthodontist. Dr. Delplanche continued his formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. As an orthodontist, Dr. Delplanche has spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan.

Why does it matter if you see your Beaverton 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 your Beaverton 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 possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have severe bite problems that need to be addressed.
    • Personal experience treating multiple cases that share your unique concerns
    • Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the 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 Beaverton orthodontist's offices every six to eight weeks.

And don't let price be a problem either! Delplanche Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Beaverton area.
