Our Mission: To Create Beautiful Smiles
Our methods of treating your teeth create a beautiful, broad, natural smile, which provides stunning facial balance and creates a dynamic, more youthful look.
Many patients see a noticeable change not only in their teeth, but in their entire face. They feel better about their smile and even more confident. Our patients tell us they just can’t stop smiling!
The Benefits of Braces
Here are just a few of the many reasons our patients come to us for treatment:
- A more attractive smile
- A harmonious facial profile
- Better function of the teeth
- Increase in confidence and self-esteem
- Improved ability to clean the teeth
- Better long-term health of teeth and gums
- To guide permanent teeth into more favorable positions
- To reduce the risk of injury to protruding front teeth
- To aid in optimizing other dental treatment
For the convenience to our patients, we have placed a number of our helpful, informative appliance instruction sheets online as downloadable/printable Acrobat PDFs.

Are Braces for Purely Cosmetic Purposes?
That’s a common misconception. It is true that orthodontic treatment can boost a person’s self-image as the teeth, jaws, and lips become properly aligned — but an attractive smile is just one of the benefits.
The prevention physical health problems is just as important. Without treatment, orthodontic problems may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone destruction, and chewing and digestive difficulties. In addition, a “bad bite” can contribute to speech impairments, tooth loss, chipped teeth, and other dental injuries.
