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!Read more

Dr. Byrd says...

Most people think of teens when they think of orthodontics but there are good reasons children should get an orthodontic evaluation much sooner. Dr. Byrd, a member of the The American Association of Orthodontists, recommends a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. At an early age the orthodontist is able to detect developing orthodontic problems. We utilize a panoramic x-ray that enables us to see all the teeth that are in a patient's mouth and also those still developing under the gums.

We have had much success in treating Pediatric Sleep Apnea.
