Meet Dr. Damon Szymanowski

Sacramento Orthodontist

A Jesuit High School graduate, Dr. Damon Szymanowski earned a degree in integrative biology from the University of California, Berkeley. During this time, he spent most of his free time in the swimming pool as a four-year Letterman on the Division I Men’s swim team.

Upon graduation in 1998, Dr. Damon Szymanowski happily set his sights east to Boston, Massachusetts where he attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

He knew right away that orthodontics was the best match for him! He actively participated in Smile Squad, educating elementary school students on the importance of oral health.

Taking a special interest in human anatomy, he was asked to become a gross anatomy tutor for the students in the dental program. In his four years at Tufts University, Dr. Damon Szymanowski met many life-long friends and colleagues, including a very special friend—his wife Alison.

The Expertise of Orthodontists vs. Dentists

While both orthodontists and dentists are integral to maintaining your oral health, they serve distinct roles. Dentists cover a broad range of oral health issues, focusing on general dental care. Orthodontists, like Dr. Damon, specialize in teeth and jaw alignment, completing additional years of specialized training beyond dental school. This makes orthodontists the go-to professionals for teeth straightening procedures. Choosing an orthodontist ensures that you're receiving care from someone who has extensive training and experience in correcting misalignments, optimizing not just the look of your smile, but its functionality as well.

Transformative Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Embarking on orthodontic treatment with Szymanowski Orthodontics opens the door to a multitude of benefits that extend well beyond the cosmetic:

Physical Health Improvements

Straight teeth contribute to better oral hygiene, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Properly aligned teeth and jaws also alleviate issues such as abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, and difficulties with chewing.

Mental and Personal Growth

A confident smile can significantly boost your self-esteem, influencing how you view yourself and interact with the world. Patients often report a greater sense of well-being and confidence post-treatment.

Social and Professional Advantages

A beautiful smile can enhance how you're perceived by others, making stronger first impressions and improving your social and professional interactions. Studies have shown that individuals with appealing smiles are often considered more attractive and successful, opening doors to new opportunities and advancements.

Szymanowski lists essential tips to ensure your orthodontic treatment is a breeze so that you understand the ins and outs of your treatment.
