Torrance Orthodontic Treatment Specialist
Why Come to an Orthodontic Treatment Specialist?
An Orthodontic Treatment Specialist is a specialist who has not only received his or her doctorate in general dentistry but who has continued on through graduate school to become certified as an orthodontist. Unlike the general dentist who may also legally provide orthodontic services, an Orthodontic Treatment Specialist is one who limits their primary practice in order to specialize in orthodontic treatments. A dentist may not legally announce that their practice is limited to orthodontics unless they have completed a university orthodontic training program of two years or more
Dr. Eckhart attained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at USC and his certificate in orthodontics from the University of California at San Francisco. He has also obtained a credential in dental sleep medicine from the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, he is an Adult Orthognathic Specialist, an Airway Assessment/Sleeping Disorders Specialist, and an Invisalign Specialist.

- Practicing proper oral hygiene and keeping your teeth perfectly clean;
- Completing a treatment of wearing elastics;
- Being patient if your wait is longer than expected;
- Getting any types of braces put on or taken off; and
- Referring non-family members to us, and more
Eckhart Bucks can then be redeemed in the reception area for books, gift cards, gas cards, movie tickets, software, guitar lessons, iPods or you name it!
About the Value of a Torrance and South Bay Orthodontist
Dr. Eckhart achieved his degree in General Dentistry and furthered his ability to serve the community by becoming an Orthodontic Treatment Specialist. He then decided to open his own practice in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County back in 1975 and has been helping patients with their orthodontic needs ever since. Dr. Eckhart has lectured and published works on a variety of subjects including overbite correction and the treatment of snoring. He has patented an overbite corrector, the MARA (mandibular anterior repositioning appliance), which is now the second largest selling such device in the country. His ability to identify the most effective treatment for even the most difficult orthodontic issues has garnered him a reputation throughout the Southland as the "go-to" orthodontist for adults and children living in the communities of Torrance, South Bay and beyond.
