A Passion for Helping Children
Dr. Garlock was hand selected to be on the Cleft Lip Palate, Craniofacial Anomaly Team at the renowned Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri where he worked with Plastic Surgeons, ENT’s, Audiologist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Pathologist, Pediatricians, Pediatric Dentist and Prosthodontists to coordinate the care of these special children with special needs. He has a passion for helping children with special needs of all kinds, and enjoys the challenge that difficult cases bring as well as the opportunity to provide a positive experience for these amazing kids:
“I love treating children with special needs, because they are so grateful for the help and they desperately need it. It feels good to truly make a difference in these kids’ lives.”
Dr. Garlock’s training gave him the extraordinary experience of treating the most severe orthodontic problems,
Giving him confidence that with the right health care providers in place, anyone can be helped to some degree to achieve a smile they feel confident with.
Dr. Garlock has been published in the premier orthodontic research journal: The American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dr. Garlock has conducted multiple research studies in the field of orthodontics with his most recent study dealing with the use of cone beam computed tomography (3D CT scans) to evaluate the effects of orthodontic treatment on the jaw bones that surround the teeth. His extensive research stems from his passion to provide the best possible treatment to his patients:
“I wanted to find out if the way certain orthodontists were treating their patients was either harming or helping their patients. I knew that by using this advanced 3 dimensional technology to evaluate hundreds of patients, I would be able to get answers to my questions. More importantly, I knew this process would help me become a better orthodontist and consequentially better serve my patients.”
