Orthodontics for Teens

Great vibes included with every treatment

Awesome Smiles Start Here

Setting your teen up for a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles means correcting issues now, not later. Between the ages of 12 and 16 is the perfect time to check in with our team and see if braces or Invisalign are in your future. We want to make sure that your kid is on the right path to a confident smile – bring them in for a complimentary evaluation so we can say hello!

Treating Teenage Smiles

Your teen wants a smile that inspires the confidence they need to do great things (like making a new friend or presenting a project at school). Our focus is to make treatment easy, fast, and comfortable so that they can look forward to their smile transformation and feel their best for the whole journey. With better options and a positive attitude, we keep your teen smiling before, during, and after treatment!

Braces

Traditional braces and clear braces may not sound all that cool, but we make sure that your teenager’s time with braces is as discreet and comfortable as possible. Treatment shouldn’t cramp your style – and with our state-of-the-art tooth technology, it won’t!

Invisalign™

Teens have a lot on their plate, and Invisalign offers the perfect smile solution for fast, effective, and low-profile orthodontics. With removable clear aligners, your teen won’t have to interrupt their schedule or avoid their favorite foods during their transformation!

Retainers

When your teen’s teeth or jaw need a little extra help getting into the right space, we have a variety of additional orthodontic appliances to do the job – from palatal expanders to night guards!

Affording the Best Care

Finances should never stand in the way of getting your child or teen the best dental care in town. We want to make sure that you’re relaxed, not worried, when you visit us. Work with our team to find the best way to fit great dental care into your budget, with awesome payment options, maximized insurance benefits, and affordable solutions at every step.

"My kids love going to Great Smiles!  The whole staff is so friendly, loving, and patient with children. They fit us in when my daughter had an emergency cavity that our family dentist couldn’t address, and we had such a great experience that we moved our kids over to their practice for all of their dental care. Highly recommend!”

I’m an adult patient and have never had braces before! Great Smiles is excellent! High end technology, great kind staff and super super efficient. If you have put off getting braces…don’t. This place is very good at what they do! " 

- Tom C.

"Every aspect of my journey with them was exceptional! Truly. I was impressed with the practice at my first visit - their professionalism, knowledge, kindness…. But I leave their care even more amazed that they consistently delivered the highest level of service I have ever experienced in any medical practice. As a doctor, myself, that means a lot. Every visit I left their office feeling nurtured and grateful I had chosen Great Smiles to handle my orthodontic needs. The results of my treatment also far exceeded my expectations!” 

- Dr. Laura F.

"I started to have several issues with my teeth in my 50s and did not want traditional braces but with Invisalign I could get the results looking for without the hassle of braces. My experience at Great Smiles has been seamless, extremely helpful staff and Orthodontist exceeded my expectations and I am not even at the end of my journey. I would highly recommend this practice!"

“Great Smiles is an amazing pediatric dentist practice. My three kids have grown up under the care of their doctors. It is so helpful to have multiple kids' appointments at one visit. We've enjoyed the consistency of having the same staff involved in their care over the years (cleanings, etc.). They are so caring. I highly recommend this practice.”

- Lisa

"It’s been five months, my teeth ARE STRAIGHT! And the care is amazing. Very thorough, courteous, and took their time answering a ton of questions. Highly recommend."

"My daughter needed braces and they were so accommodating. Super thankful for an orthodontist that is local and their staff is always so nice. They make it a priority to take their time to listen to any concerns. Just a wonderful experience all around. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to take their child for braces!" 

- Crystal J.

“Everyone at Great Smiles is great. They are always accommodating. The doctors are awesome and provides great detail when speaking with you. They were able to relieve my daughter’s anxiety as she had a chip in her tooth. She had the biggest smile when she walked out to see me. Thank you for the care you take with your patients.”

- Carol

“The best place to bring your kids!!! My 6 year old had a meltdown because only big sis had an appointment one day. So the hygienist brought my 6-year-old tableside so she could watch her sister's teeth getting cleaned. Everyone is sooo patient and kind. They really do care about your child's overall experience at the dentist. My kids have grown up in this practice and have absolutely no fear of the dentist or anything that happens at the dental office. Their manner is amazing. All the hygienists are super sweet, gentle and kind.
