Dreaming of straighter teeth? Superior Orthodontics offers professional and personalized oral care that can give you a smile that will change your life.
Dr. Kishawn Kole-James knows what it’s like to have crooked teeth. He grew up with them. “People teased me and I was sort of an introvert, so I hid my smile,” he says. When he did laugh or smile, it would come out as a sort of grimace. “It (just) wasn’t the smile God intended for me.”
But that all changed when he got braces. In fact, once he got his braces taken off, his confidence skyrocketed. “I’ve been smiling ever since,” he says. His experience with braces changed his life and from that point on Dr. Kole-James, now a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), wanted to give people the same gift, so he opened Superior Orthodontics.
This local practice, which has three convenient locations in Detroit, Harper Woods and West Bloomfield, opened in 2017 and offers every aspect of orthodontic care from clear aligners, to gold and white braces, to more traditional options.
And because Dr. Kole-James worked in general dentistry for eight years prior to furthering his education in orthodontics – coupled with the fact that every patient’s lab work is done in-house – he’s able to take on more complex dental issues too. “Most orthodontists go straight to orthodontics school from dental school,” he explains.
“Having that experience has allowed me to expand the scope of what I offer to my patients.” In addition to this wide array of services, Superior Orthodontics has an excellent and caring staff, beautiful and comfortable facilities and the most state-of-the-art technology.
But what really makes this practice stand out is how they tailor their oral care to the needs of each and every patient. “We customize every aspect of our patient’s care,” Dr. Kole-James explains. “I’m asking questions and digging to find out who my patients are as individuals.”
This includes asking each patient what he or she would change about their teeth and how their smile impacts them day-to-day, in addition to explaining the individual needs that should be taken care of from a medical standpoint.
“I’m very high energy, I’m always running around the clinics and really engaging with patients to find out who they are, so I really get to know what they’re going through in life,” he adds. “When the smile is done, they’re at a new point in life to further goals and be the best them possible.”
And it’s not just orthodontic care that Dr. Kole-James offers either. A partnership with fellow dentist Dr. Ronald Kitchen brings regular dental care to the West Bloomfield location’s Superior Family Smiles. “It’s the dental arm of the Superior brand where we offer general dental services, like hygiene and implants. Any dental problems you have we can treat,” he says.
Think you might be ready to work on your smile? Dr. Kole-James says you can call, fill out the contact form online or stop-by your community office to set up an appointment for an evaluation or free consultation. Anyone as young as seven years old can start working on their smile at Superior Orthodontics, he adds. And no matter how old you are, you’re not too old.
“We see patients as early as seven and as old as 80 or 90,” he explains. “You’re never too late to improve how you look, and a smile is for a lifetime.”
