Care Philosophy

The difference in our orthodontic office is our commitment to providing non-invasive, non-extraction orthodontic treatment. Damon System Braces, H4 Braces, and Invisalign clear braces offer a new amazing way to straighten teeth that is faster and more comfortable than traditional orthodontic braces; these methods often don't require tooth extractions. We also offer the AcceleDent appliance, which is a hands-free device worn 20 minutes a day to accelerate tooth movement and reduce treatment time. With these advanced treatment options, patients experience greater comfort during treatment, require fewer office visits, and enjoy quicker appointments – not to mention more time showing off their new smile!Read more
