We strive to provide quality orthodontic care at the appropriate age and in a minimal amount of time. While some patients will benefit from early orthodontic therapy, the vast majority of our patients achieve quality results in one comprehensive phase of braces started when all – or most of – the permanent teeth have erupted into the mouth.

Although early orthodontic treatment in the mixed dentition is valuable in some cases, most recent research suggests that while it is effective, it is not any more effective than a single comprehensive phase of treatment started later in the permanent definition. Therefore, we treat 85-90% of our patients in one comprehensive phase, not two-phase treatment.
