Welcome to Make a Smile Orthodontics!

At Make a Smile Orthodontics, your child’s smile is in great hands! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff works with both children and parents to ensure GREAT orthodontic service. We are dedicated to the correction of youth and adolescent dental irregularities through the use of our personalized, friendly service and state of the art orthodontic facility and treatment plans. We offer both interceptive and preventative orthodontics, tailoring treatments to suit your individual growing child’s needs.

Orthodontics for Adults

Many adults never received orthodontic treatment as a child. Others have seen their previously straight teeth relapse over time. Whatever the reason, orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. One out of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over the age of 21.

The advancements of orthodontic treatment has given orthodontists new techniques and appliances that allow for a quicker, more comfortable treatment plan for adolescents and adults. Adults are excited about the clear aligners and clear brackets. These alternatives give the patient the opportunity to choose which orthodontic option will fit their life style best.

Kids and Parents

The Parent’s and Children Together program is unique to Make a Smile Orthodontics. This program allows parents to become directly involved by undergoing their own orthodontic procedures right beside their child, becoming their treatment partner.

What to Expect at a Consultation

The first consultation will be used to determine the best course of treatment using a clinical examination; this may include x-rays. We encourage you to take this time to get to know our highly trained orthodontist by asking questions and letting them know any of your concerns, which will also help them come up with the best treatment plan.
