For Cameron Jolley, a career in dentistry was a no-brainer. “I come from long line of dentists,” he said. “My dad and his twin brother are dentists practicing together. I have one older and one younger cousin who are orthodontists. My little sister is just graduating from dental school and another cousin was just accepted.” After graduating at the top of his class from Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Dr. Jolley decided orthodontics was the best option for him.
He was accepted into the prestigious Orthodontic Specialty Program at the University of Washington in Seattle where he earned his Master’s Degree in Science in Dentistry, then went on to earn his board certification. He established Jolley Orthodontics in Trophy Club with the vision of a fun, family atmosphere where patients and their families feel at home.
“We strive to present an orthodontic practice where each patient is appreciated; a place that’s fun to visit; where we know patients and family members by name and are happy to see them, each time they walk through the door.” Fun office activities such as pajama day, crazy hat day, ugly sweater contest, patient appreciation parties, art contests, an in-office grin cam and Friday fun events keep things light and enjoyable for everyone.
“My staff and I love witnessing the transformation of a patient who first visits us afraid to smile, because of the look of their teeth, to someone who’s confident and eager to flash their new smile to the world. Each time we remove a set of braces, it’s a celebration for us.”
Orthodontic technology is rapidly advancing and Dr. Jolley is at the forefront of each new advancement. “Many of us remember the old impressions dentists and orthodontists had to take,” he said. “Those have been replaced by a 3-D digital scanner, which is much more accurate and much more comfortable for the patient. Many other advancements have made braces, not just more comfortable and less noticeable, but far more effective and accurate.”
“Of course, braces are about more than aesthetics,” Dr. Jolley continued. “There’s a functional component as well. Misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean and are more prone to cavity, fracture and uneven wear.” Dr. Jolley sees a wide range of patients, from the school-age child having his first evaluation, to determine whether bite discrepancies will need to be treated down the line, to the business man or woman looking to correct alignment issues with one of the more discreet orthodontic options.
“There are many viable options for adults who want to correct their teeth but don’t want to be seen wearing braces,” Dr. Jolley said. “There are Invisalign clear, removable tooth aligners that straighten teeth without the use of metal or wires and, even more discreet, there are brackets that attach to the backs of the teeth.”
There’s also a large philanthropic component to Jolley Orthodontics. “We’re always looking for ways to give back to the community that supports us,” Dr. Jolley said. “We are partners in education in the Northwest ISD and the Northwest Education Foundation. And we’re always eager to sponsor local sports teams and tournaments.”
When not on the job, Dr. Jolley enjoys spending time with his wife and their nine- and five-year-old, playing golf and keeping up with their daughter’s soccer team and son’s baseball team.
Dr. Jolley has been published numerous times in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics for clinical research regarding early treatment and quality of life improvements from orthodontic care. He’s been quoted in the Wall Street Journal regarding early orthodontic treatment and been awarded the prestigious Graber Award from the American Association of Orthodontics for his clinical research study. Dr. Jolley also served as a guest lecturer at the American Association of Orthodontic annual meeting in Washington DC.
Some of the tooth misalignment issues Dr. Jolley addresses are:
- Upper Front Teeth Protrusion: The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.
- Overbite: The upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
- Crossbite: The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.
- Openbite: Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.
- Crowding: Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.
- Spacing: Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.
- Dental Midlines not Matched: This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
