Why We’re Unique

“The smile is a physical expression of an emotional state”

  1. Dr. Parker and Dr. Sears have over 45 years of combined experience as orthodontists and each review the diagnostic records to formulate a plan that is best for the present and future treatment of each patient. Each malocclusion is different and each plan is individualized.
  2. The braces and wires we use to straighten the teeth move them faster and with less discomfort than traditional braces due to the gentle forces and super elasticity of the wires. When appropriate, Invisalign clear aligners can be used to correct many malocclusions.
  3. We employ the latest in technology to insure that each patient and parent has a clear understanding of treatment. Our clinical staff utilizes programs to enable our patients to better understand why and how their treatment is progressing.
  4. We work closely with all referring dentists to ensure the best coordination of dental and orthodontic needs.
  5. We use state of the art sterilization equipment and use the most current OSHA guidelines to ensure a safe environment.
  6. Our x-ray equipment is digital to reduce radiation exposure to the patient while at the same time giving us the highest resolution for our diagnosis and treatment.
  7. Our wonderful and caring staff is always available to help with scheduling, financial and insurance questions or working with patients and parents during treatment to make orthodontics an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Finally, as stated in the CDA journal, the smiles we aim for are those of:

  • Health
  • Self-confidence
  • High self esteem
  • Pleasure and
  • Joy
