Why Choose
our office


Guiding Oral Hygiene
and Healthy Smiles

We’re pleased to offer innovative, state-of-the-art Invisalign® clear aligners for our adult patients. Comfortable and convenient, these custom-designed aligners gently correct the bite and straighten teeth, while you go about your life! As they’re removable, you’re able to enjoy the activities you love and the foods that make you happy, and you don’t have to worry about broken brackets or wires. Invisalign®: the clear path to your best smile!

Also known as Phase One, early orthodontic treatment begins when the child is eight or nine. By starting while the mouth is developing, we’re able to guide jaw growth and correct certain bite issues, while making room for the arrival of permanent teeth. Early treatment can mean less invasive treatment later, as we work to ensure the child’s smile develops correctly!

Having braces doesn't necessarily require highly noticeable metal brackets and wires. In fact, many of today's braces are made from either clear or natural tooth colored materials to provide patients with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.

Invisalign® clear aligners revolutionized orthodontics when they first came to market. Now, years later, they are still the leader with proven results: thousands of beautifully healthy and confident smiles! Available for teens and adults, this convenient, comfortable, and efficient treatment is the virtually invisible option to achieve your most amazing smile!
