Beautiful Smiles for Children and Adults

We create beautiful smiles that change lives.


The value of a smile.

Confidence that changes the game.

Studies show that a beautiful, straight smile can provide a dramatic increase in confidence. More confidence, more success. More success, more confidence.

A healthy smile lasts a lifetime.

A good bite and straight teeth are easier to clean and wear much less over time. Both of these can lead to a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Finally look as good as you feel.

People of any age want to look in the mirror and love what they see. You eat right, you exercise. You take care of yourself and your children. Give yourself and your children the gift that lasts a lifetime…a beautiful, healthy smile.


What is an "orthodontist"?

An orthodontist is a dental "specialist".

Like the Navy SEAL’s or the Army Rangers, orthodontists are highly trained dentists who limit their practice to the correction and prevention of bite and tooth alignment problems in children and adults.

All orthodontists are dentists, NOT all dentists are orthodontists. An orthodontist has completed 2 to 3 MORE years of education beyond Dental School. Specifically studying the growth and development face and jaws and often earning a Master’s Degree in the process. (that’s what the “MSD” is after Dr. N’s name)

Most frequent questions and answers

No. You do not need to be referred by your dentist. However, we do need clean, healthy teeth to start any orthodontic treatment. So if you haven’t had a recent cleaning and checkup with your dentist, please get that done first. 

Of course. Millions of adults get braces every year and approximately 1 in 4 of our patients are adults. We have even treated patients in their 70’s! You’re never “too” old!

We have found the best age to bring your child in for their first orthodontic check is around 8 years old. Usually when they are in second or third grade. We don’t recommend treatment for all children we see for sure, but we like to make sure the teeth and bite are developing normally and can recommend any appropriate treatment at a later date. 

Yes, completely free. We will also take any necessary xrays at no charge. 

Invisalign was originally designed for, and by, patients that had already had braces and were just seeing a little movement of their teeth. While many patients will have the option of Invisalign, significant bite problems often require braces to correct.

Now that’s a tough question. Without seeing your smile and getting to know your goals, it’s impossible to give you a figure. We can say that braces for your upper and lower teeth can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $7,500.

We accept a variety of insurance benefits from many Insurance providers. To get more information just click the “Chat Now” button in the lower right corner of this site.
