Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Watson "FAMILY FRIENDLY STAFF AND ENVIRONMENT

Picture this: A patient has his first appointment at the orthodontist, yet he already knows the receptionist's name, already understands the lay of the land, already shares inside jokes with the doctor. It happens every day at the office of Jim Watson, D.D.S., P.A. That's because when parents bring one child to Dr. Watson for braces, they're so satisfied with his treatment that they're eager to bring their next child and their next. Many even become patients themselves. According to Dr.Watson, "The biggest joy in our practice is developing a relationship with entire families, getting to know them and becoming their family orthodontist"."
