We understand and embrace the fact that everyone does not require orthodontic treatment.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends, and we encourage, an orthodontic screening by seven years of age. However, recent clinical research has shown that most children do not require braces at this age.
At our complimentary evaluation, we screen for a specific list of situations that require early intervention. Some developmental dental mal-relationships cannot be adequately addressed if not treated between seven and ten years of age. The majority of orthodontic treatment, however, is best initiated when the patient is ten to twelve years old.
High-Tech Records and Treatment—NO MORE IMPRESSIONS
We utilize the latest technology in 3-D digital scanning and 3-D in-office digital printing. We do not need to take those gooey, yucky alginate impressions!
We use all digital X-rays, which generate less radiation than standard machines.
We have extensive experience with Invisalign treatment for both children and adults and have been designated as a Platinum Provider.
All of our orthodontic materials utilize the most state-of-the-art technology, resulting in gentler forces, minimized patient discomfort, reduced treatment time, and fewer office visits.
Orthodontic Treatment for the Whole Family
We are fully equipped to provide all orthodontic services; and, our orthodontist is board-certified and has many years of experience in the orthodontic treatment of both children and adults.
Open Lines of Communication
We strive to give you the most information about your treatment possible. We believe that our patients and parents should be very well informed.
We welcome and encourage questions and are more than happy to provide additional explanations as needed, not just from our staff, but from our doctor as well.
Our greatest priority is to satisfy our patients and their parents. To this end, we feel that it is necessary to completely understand a patient or parent’s concerns.
We speak honestly about what can and can’t be accomplished and treat each patient with the kindness and compassion they deserve.
Family-friendly, Fun Environment
We are a fun and energetic office and always welcome parents in our clinical treatment area. This eliminates a lot of the perceived mystery in orthodontic treatment and allows parents to follow the progress of their child’s care.
Comprehensive Diagnosis with Individualized Treatment Plan
We take thorough diagnostic records including digital x-rays of the teeth and jaws, digital pictures of the teeth and face, and a 3-D digital scan of the teeth (radiation-free) to create virtual study models.
After performing a computer analysis on this information, our doctor reviews the diagnostic data and formulates a treatment plan specific for each patient.
We have no affiliation with any specific orthodontic appliance or technique and select from a large arsenal of treatment approaches in order to find the most efficient and effective for each patient.
