If both were orthodontists, then it's your decision. If neither of them were, get an opinion from an orthodontist. Both are right, it just depends on their technique and opinion. Either way you will get the end result desired. In my opinion, getting them on now will save time in the braces for the child. But that is just an opinion. It is really up to you. Go with whatever and whichever dentist makes you and your child more comfortable, either way the teeth will end up straight.
