Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lawless "Orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth. It is about achieving the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve for confidence that lasts a lifetime. Orthodontic treatment may not only improve your smile, but it can improve your health! Dr. Lawless uses digital imaging and a detailed examination to create a customized treatment plan that results in a beautiful smile, a well-functioning bite and healthy jaw joints. Teeth that are better positioned are easier to keep clean! An accurate bite improves jaw function, increases chewing efficiency, provides long-term health to the jaw muscles and joints, and sustains the health of the gum tissue.

Dr. Lawless and his team pride themselves on offering excellent customer service and an exceptional orthodontic experience to all patients. It is their goal to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a professional, caring and fun environment where patients are the top priority and where getting braces is a pleasant experience!"
