Meet Your Orthodontist: Dr. Kyle Rabe

Meet Tucson’s Best: Dr. JAW Orthodontists’ Kyle Rabe, D.D.S., M.S.

Interested in braces? Considering Invisalign® or Incognito® lingual braces? Perhaps you have TMJ pain or dental-caused sleep apnea? Dr. JAW has the best orthodontists in Tucson, and they can help.

Dr. Kyle Rabe is a key member of the Dr. JAW Orthodontists team. Here, he discusses his love of the orthodontic specialty, his fellow Dr. JAW staff, and his connection with patients.

What is the most enjoyable aspect of being an orthodontist?

I see being an orthodontist as a two-way street. I pride myself in evaluating each patient’s unique case and developing the best possible treatment plan for that individual. The field of orthodontics is always expanding, and I love keeping up with the latest and greatest advances so I can deliver optimal experiences and results to my patients. In return, they give me the special gift of their trust and friendship. That’s an amazing feeling.

Why should patients choose Dr. JAW?

There are lots of great reasons to choose Dr. JAW! Patients of our practice receive the benefit of three expert opinions because all three orthodontists at Dr. JAW are board-certified specialists. The process of board certification is rigorous, and it’s a professional credential held by only 20% of practicing orthodontists. Having achieved the status of diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics means that you are capable of delivering results that meet the highest standards of the profession. Our entire staff is equally dedicated to providing exceptional care in a warm and friendly environment, and that’s something we’re proud of.

For those interested in Invisalign®, our practice is the only Elite Preferred Provider of Invisalign in Southern Arizona. We’ve been voted the #1 Best Orthodontists for years in a row. We have three offices in Tucson, Oro Valley, and Sahuarita and offer flexible scheduling, including early and evening appointments.

What it comes down to is that at every turn, it’s all about our patients—from our state-of-the-art technology, to our fun contests, to the convenience of our locations and hours. We’ve thought through every detail, and that’s what makes us special.

How is Dr. JAW linked to the communities Tucson, Oro Valley, and Sahuarita?

Many corporate dental offices have out-of-state owners or may be run by an off-site office manager. Dr. JAW Orthodontists has multiple locations, but each and every staff member associated with our practice is also an active member of the communities we serve. The greater Tucson community is close-knit, and we love that we get to know patients and their families not just in a clinical setting, but out and about around town.

All three doctors are also very involved in the community through philanthropic and professional organizations. Because many of our patients are kids, we enjoy regularly supporting sports teams and student activity programs as well.

What is the best compliment you can receive from a patient?

As an orthodontist, the best compliment is unspoken. It’s a genuine smile from someone I’ve helped. Fortunately for me, I get that compliment every day! Creating beautiful smiles is my daily job, but it really never gets old. Seeing a new level of confidence on the face of a happy patient is the best reward.
