Our Orthodontic Specialities


It’s no longer necessary to have the appearance or feel of braces to get the smile you’ve always wanted, or to get back the smile you used to have! Our clear aligners deliver fantastic results usually in less time than traditional braces!


This time tested teeth straightening treatment is now better than ever with low profile brackets that are laser accurate. Want the convenience of braces without the look? Our invisible clear braces are a great choice.


Also known as early interceptive orthodontics, phase 1 treatment prevents more serious problems from developing. Treating our youngest patients we focus on proactive prevention with space maintainers, palatal expanders, and growth modification.

Patient Reviews

My kids enjoy the relaxed and friendly environment. Everyone knows how to relate to the kids and they make their experience easy. They will go over everything you need to know when you get braces. I recommend them 1000% percent.

I would always look forward to my monthly appointment! Dr. P and staff made each visit enjoyable. Not to mention Linda made the financial side of things hassle free. I am truly happy with my end results! Thank you Dr.P!!! Highly recommend!!                                                       

Melissa I.

I absolutely love him and all of his staff. They are kind, funny and definitely make you feel great when you are down about anything. I’d recommend this office to any one. I’m 32 and cried with excitement to finally be able to get the braces I’ve wanted.              


This review is from the father of a son who just completed his orthodontics treatment.. we couldn't be more thrilled with the results and care received! As parent and my son the patient, we both loved the experience and HIGHLY recommend his orthodontics care!

Steve G.

He helped me execute exactly what I wanted, which involved straightening my teeth, but also an implant and other recommendations needed to get my smile where I expected it. I'm thrilled to have my braces off and recommend them to anyone!
