Why Choose Us?

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that your child get a check-up with an orthodontist at the first recognition of the existence of an orthodontic problem, but no later than age 7.  However, you are never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. Adults represent a significant percentage of patients in most orthodontic practices.
