For a Smile That's Good For Life

  • Follow the American Dental Association's recommendation and start dental visits by your child's first birthday.
  • Make regular visits to your dentist at least every six months.
  • Take your child for an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. If a problem is detected, we can determine the best time to start treatment.
  • Get your child an orthodontic check-up even if he or she is past age 7. Although an early check-up can be extremely beneficial, the fact is that most orthodontic patients begin active treatment between ages 9 and 14.
  • Keep in mind that orthodontic treatment can also benefit adults. Less visible, more comfortable braces make treatment more appealing than ever, and healthy teeth, bones and gums of almost any age respond well to treatment.
  • Take advantage of the affordability of orthodontic treatment today. We have a variety of convenient payment plan
  • Remember that successful orthodontic treatment is the result of a partnership. The orthodontist, family dentist and, especially, a cooperative patient all work together to create a healthy, beautiful smile that's good for life.
