Your Smile Deserves the Best!
Did you know?. . . An orthodontist is a dentist, but a general dentist is rarely an orthodontist. Both orthodontists and general dentists complete four years of dental school, after their bachelor’s degrees, and both are doctors of dentistry. However, to practice with the title of orthodontist, a dentist must complete advanced dental education requirements in orthodontics to practice their craft. After dental school, a general dentist develops their skills during an additional 36-month residency focused on specialized orthodontic training and must pass a certification exam to officially become a practicing orthodontist. Only a dentist with this orthodontic training, education, and experience can be licensed to practice as an orthodontist.

Our office utilizes the most comfortable, efficient and technologically advanced braces available. Because we offer the latest technology in braces, more choices are available to our patients. Regular metal braces are still the most widely used, yet other types are gaining popularity.

Invisalign® is the world’s leading clear aligner using state-of-the-art 3D technology.
Invisalign® is a popular choice for clear aligner therapy due to its advanced treatment plans and comfortable clear aligners. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligner trays to gradually and gently shift your teeth into proper position. These trays are almost invisible when you’re wearing them and are taken out when you eat or brush your teeth – allowing you to keep your mouth healthy while you’re undergoing treatment. Patients who want to wear clear aligners to achieve a straighter smile must wear their aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours per day, or anytime they are not eating or brushing their teeth.
