You will see Dr. Hildebrand around town on the weekends as he lives here in Preston Hollow and both of his children attend ESD, The Episcopal School of Dallas. The Hildebrand’s are very active in the community supporting local causes to make Dallas an amazing home for their family and the families he treats. Following his father’s footsteps and continuing the dental legacy Dr.s Jed and Kim Hildebrand aren’t the only Hildebrand dentist in Dallas. They are joined by his two brothers Drs. Sloan and Brody Hildebrand who are both board certified prosthodontists (specialized Dentists) who have practices in Preston Center (Park Cities/Highland Park). All 3 brothers work closely together making sure all the dental needs of a patient are taken care of.
Dr. Jed Hildebrand is known in the orthodontic community as a pioneer in early orthodontic treatment to make sure children can avoid the dreaded long braces treatment in their teenage years which can create permanent tooth damage and unfixable facial esthetics. Dr. Jed concentrates on treating facial developmental problems like crossbites, open bites and underbites which need to be treated earlier than braces between the ages of 6-11. Both of the Hildebrand’s children have already had the new orthodontic treatment called Invisalign First to develop the dental arches to avoid cross bites and create room for the developing permanent teeth. The recommended age to see an orthodontist for their free facial developmental consultation is age 6 and continue being monitored yearly at no cost at Walnut Central Orthodontics.
