New Patient

Contrary to much of the current marketing in orthodontics, the final outcome is not a direct result of the “bracket” that is being used.  There is far more to it than that.  The orthodontist’s diagnosis and treatment planning, the experience of the staff, plus the cooperation of the patient are what is most important.  We are a traditional orthodontic office that uses techniques and appliances that have been tried and proven to deliver excellent results time and again.

Committed To Dental Excellence

We Create Beautiful and Brighter Smiles

My philosophy is to treat each patient as if he/she were one of my own family.  Our office strives to deliver quality orthodontic care with excellent service and results.  We try to do this for a reasonable and affordable fee, in a punctual and efficient manner, and in a safe and comfortable environment.
