Congratulations! You made the decision to begin your orthodontic treatment! After your initial exam you will schedule your first appointment, to begin your journey.

You’ll receive your own orthodontic care kit, and our team will be available to answer all of your questions. We’re here to make sure that you and your family are as comfortable, and relaxed as possible.
