Award-Winning Orthodontic Treatment

JMD Orthodontics and TMJ is headed by Dr. Dierkes, a nationally recognized orthodontic specialist with a naturopathic and neuromuscular approach to orthodontics and facial orthopedics. Through comprehensive orthodontic, esthetic, and naturopathic treatment, Dr. Dierkes has produced award-winning smiles for his patients. One of Dr. Dierkes’s patients was used to capture the essence of the perfect smile in a two-page advertisement by Eastman Kodak.

Patients are highly involved in their care throughout the entire length of treatment by keeping open communication with Dr. Dierkes, who establishes a trustworthy relationship. Dr. Dierkes empowers his patients to make sound decisions that will improve their overall health while producing last treatment results. Taking a holistic or naturopathic approach to care means that the whole patient is considered to ensure all elements affecting the patient are addressed and resolved.

Holistic Treatment to Better Your Health

Dr. Dierkes looks beyond the apparent symptoms and issues affecting your orthodontic health, examining all elements which could be contributing factors. His customized approach is complemented by taking a naturopathic angle, allowing him to execute treatments that create a strong foundation for overall patient health and optimal functional results. Through nutritional assessment for each patient, Dr. Dierkes addresses a patient’s total health before beginning orthodontic and esthetic procedures.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic and TMJ care. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient. With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the care is better for the patient, and the results beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.
