When it comes to helping kids in the community Dr. King takes the GOLD!
There are many annual awards but the Commissioner’s Business Recognition Award is unique and very special.
Dr. Roy K. King won the GOLD level award at the 23rd Annual Commissioner’s Award program. School Superintendent Dr. Art Johnson recognized the Business Partners for the major contributions they make to our schools and students every day. Notable about the award is that this recognition reached the state level which is truly an honor.
Mr. Jimmy Peterkin (District Business Partnership Coordinator) wrote congratulating Dr. King stating, “On behalf of the School District of Palm Beach County, congratulations on being selected as a recipient of the 23rd Annual Commissioner’s Business Recognition Award. The award recognizes those businesses throughout the state that have shown an outstanding commitment to improving education by partnering with schools in their communities.
Once again, congratulations, and thank you for making a difference in the lives of Palm Beach County students. “
Dr. King considers it a privilege and will continue to help your children in your community for years to come.
Frequently I am asked that question, usually with the follow up question; “What is the difference between a dentist and an orthodontist?”
Orthodontists are highly trained specialists who receive 2-3 years additional education after dental school. The additional education an orthodontist receives concentrates on growth and development regarding the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all types of malocclusions and jaw growth discrepancies. This extra training is necessary when becoming a specialist in a specific area of treatment.
An orthodontist specializes in straightening teeth, correcting facial profiles and creating beautiful smiles. They treat hundreds of new cases each year while a general dentist may see only a few orthodontic cases. An orthodontist’s combination of specialized training and experience means the orthodontist is better able to make an accurate diagnosis, especially in severe and complicated cases.
Finally, there is the issue of value and affordability. Often patients are surprised to find that orthodontic fees are usually the same as a general dentist. An orthodontist and their expertly trained staff are equipped to devote all their efforts and attention towards orthodontics. So while fees are nearly the same, the specialist possesses a significantly higher level expertise and experience.
You will agree that when you decide to improve your smile, the smart choice is to select someone who shares your passion and has trained specifically to provide you with just that smile!
