Young Orthodontics Celebrates Fifth Anniversary

The Chandler Practice Offers Patient-Centered Care to People Ages 3 to 100

Dr. Aubrey Young knew she wanted to be a dentist when she was 14. An accident had damaged two of her teeth, requiring emergency root canals.

“My dentist made it so interesting by showing me the nerves he removed from inside my teeth. It was that day I decided I wanted to be a dentist,” Young says.

After working for years as a dental assistant, dental hygienist, and practicing general dentist, Young achieved her dream by opening her own practice.

Young is now the owner and founder of Young Orthodontics. She offers a number of services at her Chandler practice, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary.

“My specialties are moving teeth with Damon Braces and Spark and Invisalign Aligners, modifying growth and development of the upper and lower jaw bones using myriad of different growth appliances, treating and assisting in the treatment of sleep apnea and other airway problems, and treating and assisting in the treatment of soft tissue development problems in the face,” Young says, adding that she sees patients from age 3 up to 100.

“My oldest patient was 84 when she started her treatment.”

Young’s expertise in airway health, as well as her extensive background as a dental assistant, dental hygienist, and practicing general dentist, help to set Young Orthodontics apart.

As Young notes, she recognizes the critical role that proper airway development plays in overall health, sleep quality, and facial growth.

In addition, her understanding of airway issues allows her to assess, diagnose, and address potential airway problems in conjunction with orthodontic treatment.

“Also, my background has provided me with a unique perspective and comprehensive understanding of various aspects of dentistry,” she says.

This experience allows Young to approach orthodontic treatment holistically, not only considering the alignment of teeth but also the overall oral health and well-being of her patients.

No matter what brings patients into Young Orthodontics, they can rest assured Young will listen attentively to their concerns, goals, and medical history.

Young is proud of, and humbled by, the many accomplishments Young Orthodontics has achieved over the last five years.

“I take pride in delivering high-quality treatment outcomes and exceptional patient experiences,” she says, adding that she enjoys seeing the way addressing airway-related issues has a positive and tangible impact on her patients.

“Witnessing the transformative changes in our patients’ lives is a source of immense pride and fulfillment.”

Young is also deeply grateful for her incredible team members and the supportive dental professionals in the community who contribute to the success of Young Orthodontics.

Looking ahead, Young says she hopes to continue growing her practice, pursuing advanced training, and building strong relationships with her patients.

“We take pride in creating a warm and welcoming environment that fosters long-term patient loyalty and satisfaction,” she says. “We deeply value the trust our patients place in us and strive to exceed their expectations through compassionate and comprehensive care.”
