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 doctors 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's 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.
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.
High-Tech Orthodontic Records and Treatment
We use all digital X-rays, which generate less radiation than standard machines.
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.
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 orthodontic study models of the teeth.
After performing a computer analysis on this information, our doctors review the diagnostic data and formulate 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 for each patient. Read more about our treatment alternatives >>
Timely Treatment for Our Patients
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.
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.
