Airway Orthodontics
Changes Lives
For a long time, the word "orthodontics" meant braces and straight teeth - it should be addressing overall health and wellness.
Preventative orthodontics / Early growth guidance.
Health benefits like these are what sets airway orthodontics apart from techniques that focus exclusively on teeth.
Today, my patients trust me to treat them using orthodontic techniques that can deliver much more than a beautiful smile. We focus on a healthy you.
Things Have Changed.
A larger airway.
Restful, uninterrupted sleep.
Non-extraction treatment.
More pleasing facial balance.
Broad Smiles That Are Complete to The Corners of The Mouth
In my 30 years as an orthodontist, I have never witnessed anything as transformational as airway orthodontics. It's a whole health approach to patient care that can improve not only how you look, but also how you feel.
We like to see children at an early age so we can screen for proper facial growth & assess oral posture. Our goal is overall wellness and, with kids, that means developing a relationship of trust with them as early as possible. We like to see kids as young as age 4.
One of the things that sets us apart is our commitment to helping children avoid invasive and /or traumatic treatments & procedures.
Of children have sleep disordered breathing (SBD) including Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA),
Go undiagnosed.
We have several treatment options for children. Our goal is to always recommend treatment. That will help patients to become their best. Not just a better smile, but a better you.
Kid's Services
Our philosophy is to ALWAYS seek the least invasive treatment technique available to address the issues our patients need help with.
Adults Services
LightForce Braces
We're excited to be able to recommend LightForce brackets for many of our patients, including both teens and adults with a variety of orthodontic needs. These 3D-printed braces that are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, which means an efficient, more discreet, and more comfortable treatment from start to finish.
We want our customers to feel welcome in our office. We encourage all parents/caregivers to accompany the child to the appointment as direct involvement of parents with pediatric patients is the best dynamic for success.
I have years of experience, but I never stop learning. Airway orthodontics and "forwardontics" are my passion, which will be evident at every appointment.
I proudly perform 90% of all direct patient care in my practice – unlike many other offices that delegate most work to dental assistants. This is how I create a long-term bond with my patients, for which I am truly grateful.
