Why Did You Decide to Become an Orthodontist?
As a child, Dr. Everson really enjoyed going to the dentist and the orthodontist. When he was receiving orthodontic treatment, he constantly asked questions about how it worked and wanted to know everything there was about his treatment and what the final result would look like. He always had a positive experience at the orthodontic office and thought it would be a fun career to pursue. He liked the ability to be a small business owner but also be in a position to help improve the confidence of both children and adults and give back to the community. It’s amazing to see the transformation that happens with a shy child hiding their smile to the big confident smile when they finish treatment. In dental school, he looked heavily into the other specialties, but he always gravitated to orthodontics with its combination of physics and basic engineering involved in each unique case.
