Frequently Asked Questions

When should my child visit the dentist?

The American Pediatric Dentistry Association recommends kids visit the dentist after their first tooth erupts or before their first birthday. These appointments are short and painless. They allow our team to examine your child’s smile as it develops.

Do kids need to visit the dentist every year?

Absolutely. Actually, we recommend two visits a year for patients of all ages to prevent future oral health concerns and keep smiles healthy for life.

How long does it take to straighten teeth with braces?

We would love to give a clear answer to that but, truthfully, every patient and treatment option is different. We offer a wide range of services that correct smiles in as little as six months or up to two or more years. Schedule a consultation to find out more today.

Does Invisalign hurt?

Most users of both Invisalign and traditional braces report only very mild discomfort after their initial visit, which diminishes very quickly.

Can I call if I have an emergency?

We welcome emergency dental patients and we care about your smile. That’s why same day emergency appointments are always available.

Where are you located?

Can I make an appointment on the weekend?
