Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parker "We're always looking for the best techniques and materials to incorporate into our orthodontic services. These include using American-made high quality braces that are precision-engineered to deliver safe, yet rapid controlled movement of the teeth. To reduce radiation exposure and to remove environmental concerns associated with traditional radiography, we utilize digital radiography (X-rays).

Throughout treatment, we monitor your oral hygiene and dental health and evaluate the progress of your orthodontic movement. We apply special coatings on the teeth to prevent decalcification and decay during treatment.

We want your visits with us to be as pleasant, comfortable and informative as possible."
