Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

We strive to provide top quality, compassionate orthodontic care. Our offices use state-of-the-art technology to ensure that your treatment is effective, efficient, and comfortable. We want your visits to be pleasant and relaxing, and our team does its very best to make you feel at home.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Traditional Braces Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. Ceramic Braces Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits. Invisalign® The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
