Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kent "At Carolina Braces our team believes that improving your smile has the power to transform your life. In fact, we’re passionate about it – and we measure our success by the way our patients feel about us and about their smiles. For us, every day is an opportunity to be the best part of your day and we can’t imagine a better job.

We‘re all involved in continuing education so that the treatments we provide will be the most current, and the technologies we use to provide them will be the most patient-friendly. We believe that a visit with Dr. Kent or Dr. Foley is the best way to find out how orthodontics can improve your health and self-confidence and we hope that from your first visit to the day you walk out with your new smile, you’ll love going to the orthodontist. We want your time in treatment to be almost as good as the day your Carolina Braces Smile is complete."

Our two daughters have been patients of Dr Kent and Dr Foley the past few years. The entire office has been so kind and willing to help when needed. I've had quite a few questions about billing and that was answered and explained thoroughly. Thank you!
