Meet Dr. Seth Briggs

I grew up in Johnstown, a small town in northern Colorado. I attended college at New Mexico State University, where I studied microbiology and was a four-year track and field student-athlete.

After undergrad, I married my sweetheart Allyson, and we began our life adventure together. I next attended Creighton University School of Dentistry. While at Creighton, I was elected class president and served on numerous student advisory boards. Also while at Creighton, I was gifted braces treatment by an Omaha orthodontist who quickly became my friend and mentor.

Being in his office for braces adjustment and watching my own smile transform, I could see firsthand how a smile could be changed and what a blast working with children and teens could be. I decided then that orthodontics was the path I wanted to follow.

After dental school, I was commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force, completed a residency in advanced clinical dentistry, and was awarded Officer of the Year while serving in California.

Why Choose an Orthodontist in Cedar Park?

Orthodontists and dentists both play vital roles in oral health, but their areas of expertise differ significantly. Orthodontists specialize in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities, focusing on the alignment of teeth and jaws. They undergo additional years of specialized education beyond dental school to master these skills. Dentists provide general oral healthcare, including cleanings, fillings, and preventive treatments, but do not have the same level of training in orthodontic procedures. Seeing an orthodontist ensures you receive expert care for teeth straightening and bite correction, resulting in optimal alignment and a healthier smile.

The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment offers numerous benefits that enhance various aspects of your life, such as:

Improved Oral Health

Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

Enhanced Appearance

A straight, attractive smile boosts your confidence and self-esteem, making you feel more comfortable in social situations.

Better Bite Function

Correcting bite issues can alleviate jaw pain, improve chewing efficiency, and prevent excessive wear on teeth.

Clearer Speech

Addressing alignment problems can help improve speech clarity and reduce lisps or other speech impediments.

Long-term Dental Stability

Orthodontic treatment can prevent future dental issues by ensuring teeth and jaws are correctly aligned.

Professional Success

A confident smile can enhance your professional image, making you appear more competent and approachable in the workplace.
