no, because dentist and orthodontist are two diffrent fields. dentist clean teeeth, and orthadontist work on moving teeth. You will need to be examed by a orthodontist to find out what plan is for you. Dentist may however suggest braces, but most are not qualified to give you them. And if you pay your orthodontist and he says it is safe for your mouth and wont mess anything up, then of course they will help you!
