Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Newell "We provide our patients with the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a professional and caring atmosphere. Our clinics provide orthodontic treatment for children and adults ranging from limited treatment with retainers, full treatment with fixed appliances, Invisalign, cleft lip and palate, and complex orthognathic surgery cases.  

We use the smallest stainless steel brackets that are made for aesthetics, comfort and for brushing.  We also have aesthetic ceramic brackets that are clear.  In addition we are one of the few offices in the midwest that use lingual brackets which are on the back of the teeth and are virtually invisible.  

We work with providers and referring dentists to coordinate treatment plans. View our website here for additional info: http://www.newell-orthodontics.com"
