How We Help

We offer a variety of patient-centered orthodontic treatments using the highest quality care possible and the latest technology.


Traditional metal or clear braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of either high-grade stainless steel or clear materials, braces straighten your teeth using metal or ceramic brackets and archwires.

Clear Aligners

Imagine a treatment that doesn’t use wires or braces, a treatment that is virtually invisible and doesn’t require you to change your current lifestyle. With clear aligners, you can straighten your teeth, and experience the benefits of a great smile without having to deal with a mouth full of metal!

Doctor with Patient


Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental irregularities. Orthodontics is devoted to building beautiful smiles by bringing teeth, lips, and jaws into proper alignment.

Other Treatments

From TMJ/TMD to surgical orthodontics, we offer various treatments designed to suit your unique needs in your specific stage of life.

Our technology

High-Tech Orthodontics

Your comfort and convenience are our priorites. We leverage the latest technology to provide the highest quality care possible.

iTero Digital Impression System

No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, your orthodontist can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw.

3D Printing

Our clear aligners are more customizable because they are designed and fabricated in our in-house lab using 3D printing technology.


This advanced imaging technology allows us to evaluate the underlying bone structure, as well as the nerve pathways and surrounding soft tissues.
