Your smile is our specialty

We have treated thousands of orthodontic patients over the years. But when you walk through our doors, only one patient matters: you. Every facet of our practice is focused on providing personalized care that delivers exceptional results. What works best for one patient may not work at all for another – the one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t exist here. Instead, we get to know your needs, your smile goals, and your lifestyle, then we create a treatment plan especially for you. Your orthodontic journey is your own, and we’re here to make you love every part of it.

Orthodontic treatment for every age

Many people wonder when the best age is to get braces, or when they should bring their child to see the orthodontist for the first time. The good news is that the benefits of orthodontic treatment are practically ageless!

We do recommend that parents bring their children for their initial orthodontic evaluation around the age of seven. The goal is to detect any developing issues in advance, especially if they may benefit from early treatment. Otherwise, most orthodontic treatment takes place between the ages of 12 and 17, when teens have the majority of their permanent teeth. We are also seeing more adult patients in our office than ever before. Today’s modern, sleeker braces provide an excellent way for adults who want to improve their smile for health or aesthetic reasons to finally make it happen.
