Featured Question

Can I schedule all of my appointments after school?

Unfortunately we cannot schedule all appointments for students during after-school hours. However, because most appointments are scheduled three to six weeks apart, most patients will miss minimal school due to their orthodontic treatment. We will make a sincere effort to meet your scheduling needs.
