Linda Crawford, DDS, MS, P.C.
From the Dentist (Sponsored)
Linda A. Crawford, D.D.S., M.S. received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry and her Masters in Science degree in Craniofacial Biology from Baylor University. Dr. Crawford received her Specialist’s Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from Baylor’s world-renowned orthodontics program in 1993. She is especially interested in how airway obstruction and improper muscle attachments affect the developing face and the development of malocclusion.
In 2001, Dr. Crawford completed the extensive examinations that earned her Diplomate Status with the American Board of Orthodontics, an honor shared by only approximately 2,000 orthodontists worldwide. She is known both nationally and internationally for developing personalized treatment plans to help each patient achieve their goals. Whether a new patient is seeking an esthetic improvement of their smile, or a more comprehensive treatment approach, the evaluation and treatment planning process are the same.
The name of our practice is “Beaux Sourires”, which is French for Beautiful Smiles. Our new patient evaluation appointment is complimentary. A panoramic radiograph is included with an oral evaluation to help identify some of the possible underlying causes of a patient’s bite problem. After the patient informs the doctor of their main objective for improving their smile or other issues related to the fit of their bite, one or more possible treatment plans are presented including the sequence of events, a fee estimate and financing options.
With more complex bite problems a teamwork approach is sometimes needed to prepare a patient for rehabilitation of their smile. Dr. Crawford is very comfortable working with a team of doctors to help a patient achieve their goals. At Beaux Sourires our mission is to do our best for each patient each day. We are dedicated to being informed about the advances in our profession with evidence based information and state of the art appliances unique to our orthodontic specialty.
Dr. Crawford started using Invisalign appliances in 1999 and she has been a premier provider for Invisalign appliances since 2005.She became an Elite provider in 2009.
When Invisalign appliances are not appropriate, or when a patient prefers more traditional appliances, our office offers high quality braces that are made in America by American Orthodontics. In most cases, the high tech, self-ligating Empower appliance is the appliance of choice. For teens and adults that prefer beautiful clear braces appliances we use the microcrystalline Radiance appliance. For those situations where children prefer to wear “colors” on their braces the Masters Series miniature twin stainless steel appliance, also made by American Orthodontics is available.
Dr. Crawford believes orthodontics is a fusion of art and science. Our practice provides a comfortable, safe, and sophisticated environment, where we treat each individual patient with personalized care. An appointment to schedule a complimentary examination can be made by phone or through our website.
