About Us
Our Services

Contemporary Metal Braces

Contemporary metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, they are the fastest and least cost prohibitive option. The majority of our patients select this kind of treatment.

Hygiene with Braces

When you get your braces on, we ll talk with you about the right kind of brush to use, and how to properly care for your braces.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on  teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns.

Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)

Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. They may be removed for eating or drinking.

We are a certified Invisalign® provider.

Emergency Care


Should you experience a problem or unexpected pain with your braces, we recommend you contact our office. One of our doctors is always on call to schedule a time to resolves the issue.



The cost of orthodontic treatment is customized for each patient based on the individual needs of each case. With our practice, there are no hidden fees, your total cost is provided up front. This includes any insurance benefits, broken appliances, emergencies and the retention phase.

We accept most major credit cards and insurance plans.
