We believe our patients deserve the best in orthodontic technology and procedures, and are pleased to offer advanced braces, including self-ligating braces, Lingual (MTM) Braces and clear aligners. Clear aligners are a popular choice for adults concerned about the appearance of braces during normal daily activities. Whatever your goals for treatment maybe, our doctors will work with you to ensure you obtain optimal results.
Our patients are our greatest asset. We seek to develop long-lasting, trusting friendships with each patient. You initial exam is complimentary to you! We welcome referrals and look forward to seeing you!
We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.
Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. Sometimes partial records are taken at this appointment. If, after evaluating your records, Dr. Griggs believes you’re ready for treatment, you can begin active treatment as soon as possible. At your second appointment, your braces will be placed. In some cases, additional appointments may be necessary before braces are placed.
