Care Philosophy

It is never too late to have a healthy and beautiful smile and teens aren't the only ones in orthodontic treatment!

In adults, the correction of orthodontic problems results in benefits beyond improving self-confidence and self-esteem. Treatment improves oral health by helping to prevent or improve periodontal problems, prevent or reduce bone loss around teeth and improve the function of teeth. It is never too late for a better smile and facial appearance. Many adults are candidates for the clear aligner technology, Invisalign. We listen to all our patients and after a thorough examination, we evaluate and offer the best treatment option. Orthodontic consultations are always free.

We work with our patients to help them understand the importance of good hygiene. Successful orthodontic treatment includes cooperation between the patient, parents, the family dentist and our office. We have systems in place (including fun games for the patient) that will exceed your expectations!

Dr. Byrd is the best. He listens to the vision you have yourself and makes it happen. I'm 32 years old with adult braces and I'm not ashamed to smile

Dr. Byrd is a bright ray of sunshine. He talks to your kids, remembers their activities and makes them (and you, the parent) feel like a million bucks! You are in and out quickly and his Saturday hours at Midlothian Family Dentistry are so convenient. He is THE BEST!!!
