Our professional purpose is to provide quality and caring orthodontic treatment in a positive and fun environment. DIAGNOSTIC DECISIONS ARE BASED ON HOW WE WOULD TREAT OUR OWN FAMILIES. The most important person in this office is the patient.
We believe orthodontic care can result in increased self-esteem and better dental health.
Facial profile, skeletal harmony, jaw joint function, aesthetics and periodontal health are all key factors in diagnosis. We try to avoid extraction of permanent teeth but sometimes this is necessary to achieve OPTIMAL FACIAL AESTHETICS or long-term stability. The profile (e.g. are the lips flat or full) is an important factor in extraction decisions. Patient preferences are another important ingredient in achieving a beautiful smile and profile.
