Facility was beautiful. Very clean. I like the "store" and the up-to-date technology. Lori and Pam took great care of me on my consultation visit but the entire staff was kind and genuine. Dr. Clark was very professional and showed concern with all my questions and he took the time to explain my treatment. I am happy I chose this facility for my orthodontic treatment.

From the moment I walked into your office, I felt very warmly received, by all of your staff! Dr. Clark and Pam explained everything, in detail, and spent time with me. I didn't feel rushed at all. I am very excited to get started, and watch the progress....... I never thought I would be getting braces, at my age, but here goes!

The staff was very courteous and explained things in more detail. The estimate was more than the first one, but the staff and office atmosphere are far more superior.

Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
