Introducing Dr. Gerald Crain, Orthodontic Specialist
He is a native Texan, attending all levels of public school in Richardson; and graduated from JJ Pearce High School, Texas Tech University, Baylor College of Dentistry and LSU Dental School for Orthodontic residency
He has a privately owned specialty practice, not a corporate office in the same location for over 20 years at Coit Rd, near Legacy Drive in Plano.
He prides himself on being Technologically advanced:
- Digital scanner rather than impressions
- Invisalign for adults, teens and pre-teens
- Self-ligating braces
- Digital X-rays with minimal radiation
Dr Crain has a conservative treatment philosophy: Most kids do not need orthodontic treatment until all of their permanent teeth are in. Of course, some kids do need orthodontic treatment while they still have baby teeth, but most do not.
With kids who come to see him and do not yet need orthodontic treatment, he sees them on a periodic basis to monitor their dental development and to time their future treatment.
He will not start treatment on your child until it is in your child’s best interest to start treatment. He will do what is best for your child at every step along the way.
Dr. Crain places all of the braces, and he sees every patient at every appointment.
“Our family has 4 children and have gone to Dr. Crain for 8 years, consistently. We have had an excellent experience with Dr. Crain and his office staff.
Each of my kids are very different and needed braces for individual reasons. Dr. Crain has always been very conservative in his approach, not starting treatment before it was necessary. He provided free consultations to ensure the maximum benefit of braces for the minimum amount of time. When my kids or I asked questions, he patiently explained the purpose of an action; he enjoyed educating the kids on the purpose of their treatment.
His staff is always polite, professional and friendly, creating a relaxed atmosphere in the office. The manager gave a clear explanation of the treatment plan and worked with our insurance and our needs to develop a payment plan.
I would highly recommend Dr. Crain for orthodontic treatment to anyone.”
