A Dual Specialty Practice

We regularly monitor your child’s need for orthodontic treatment; and if needed, we can coordinate your entire child’s dental and orthodontic care in one office, with two locations to serve you.

We also provide comprehensive orthodontic care for adults.  After seeing the positive results of their child’s orthodontic care, many of our parents choose orthodontic treatment for themselves.
