Attention Patients: Information Related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Friday, June 5, 2020: We are pleased to announce that we reopened our clinic this week. We are operating at reduced capacity and with additional screening procedures in place. We will be increasing our capacity over the next several weeks. Our residents and staff are working to reschedule cancelled visits as efficiently as possible. We are diligently triaging needs, scheduling cancelled appointments first, and then making new ones. We anticipate making appointments for new patients in July. You can reach out to your resident or patient representative as needed.
We are currently asking health screening questions and conducting temperature checks using infrared thermometers at the entrance to our building. We will send the health screening questions for your review when your visit is scheduled. We ask that patients enter the parking lot, turn right, follow the signs, and proceed around the perimeter of the parking lot. You can then enter the car line for screening at the entrance roundabout.
If you are bringing your child, they can leave the car after screening and enter the building. We ask that you park until the appointment is completed, at which point your resident will contact you via telephone to discuss the visit and let you know that your child is ready for pickup. No one other than the patient undergoing treatment can be allowed in the clinic at this time. We also ask that patients brush prior to coming to the appointment. Our waiting room is reserved for patients with a scheduled appointment at this time. If you need to enter to make a payment for your child’s treatment, you will need to complete a questionnaire, have a temperature screening, and wear a mask.
If you are coming to your own appointment, you can park after screening and then enter the building. We do ask that you bring a mask for when you enter the building.

Treatment Options We Offer
We offer many options to help you pursue orthodontic treatment that fits into your lifestyle and budget.
Traditional (Metal) Braces
Silver-colored metal braces are the most common type of dental braces used in orthodontic therapy. These brackets are made up of a mix of stainless steel, nickel, and other metals. This makes the brackets very durable to help prevent breakage.
Ceramic braces are what most people think of as “clear braces.” They function the same way as traditional metal braces, but offer a cosmetic alternative to the metal.
Incognito braces, also known as lingual braces, are another way to straighten teeth without visible brackets and wires. These braces go on the back side of your teeth.
Self-ligating braces use a metal “door” to hold the wire in place. A sliding and clipping system in these doors holds the wire in place. This system reduces the pressure on your teeth and can make treatment more efficient.
Invisalign technology consists of customized aligner trays made of smooth, comfortable, clear plastic that you wear over your teeth.
