Orthodontics Available to YOU:
We have seen quite a few patients over the years become more self-confident, more radiant and more willing to show off their smile in social situations after having straightened their teeth with braces. In addition, you won't believe the results many of our patients are getting with Invisalign invisible braces. That's right, straight teeth without the wires!

A BEAUTIFUL New Smile
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child receive an initial orthodontic examination as early as age seven. The timing of orthodontic treatment is extremely important and greatly affects the treatment result. Early diagnosis and treatment by a specialist can help prevent more serious problems. Orthodontics is not just for children. While most people tend to associate orthodontics with children, adults are also prime candidates for treatment. Approximately 25% of all orthodontic patients are adults. Advances in technology and the introduction of more indiscriminate, clear braces make the benefits of orthodontics a must for any adult.

"Dr. West evaluated my son's teeth in a conservative yet proactive manner. He was honest and caring. He listened to my concerns and addressed them in a language that I could understand. For this reason I brought my younger son for orthodontics and myself for Invisilign. Kudos to his office staff for being helpful and knowledgeable; they can answer my questions and give me advice. I don't do it often but when I have to reschedule an appointment they are very accommodating. Broken bracket and missing retainers is the story of my life; his staff doesn't make me feel bad when we are replacing or fixing metal. Really nice. It was important for me to find an orthodontist who listened and addressed my needs on all levels and this is what I found at this office. Five stars and a sixth for free parking!" - Jane
