Orthodontics for Everyone

Confident smiles can achieve the impossible.

Transforming Smiles for All Ages

There’s no age limit on creating your best smile. We believe that everyone deserves a smile that they want to share with the world, and that’s why we are inspiring greatness (with confident smiles) in children, teens, and adults with expert orthodontics. Whether you need braces or Invisalign, we’ve got you covered.

Ortho for Kids

Early orthodontic evaluation (and sometimes treatment) is the key to taking care of problems before they get tricky. We want to say “Hello!” to your smile around your child’s 7th birthday!

Ortho for Teens

Braces aren’t as bad as you think – we promise. When your teen needs to tweak their smile, we have clear braces, traditional braces, and Invisalign for treatment that looks and feels great!

Ortho for Adults

It’s never too late to invest in your smile. Even adults can get the incredible benefits of orthodontic treatment with our docs – it’s time to get inspired with a brand-new you!

What We Do

Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
When it comes to kids, we want to make sure that we’re keeping a close eye on their teeth as they grow and develop. Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment combines early monitoring, x-rays, and orthodontic appliances at a young age with braces or Invisalign at a later age. This makes sure that we take every step necessary to give your child a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment
Comprehensive orthodontic treatment involves complete, personalized care completed in a single phase with teens and adults. Using braces or Invisalign to gradually correct bite issues and straighten teeth, we can fix speech issues, jaw pain, enamel wear-and-tear, and more dental issues!

How We Do It

With Invisalign, correcting your smile becomes a walk in the park. Not only are Invisalign clear aligners invisible – they’re also removable, pain-free, and customized for you! This flexible choice is perfect for teens and adults who don’t want their treatment to get in the way of the things that matter most (like chowing down on your favorite snacks!).

Braces have a bad rap, we know. But when we set you up with treatment, we know that you want it to be as comfortable, discreet, and fast as possible. With modern-day tech, you can get all this and more when you transform your smile with clear braces or traditional braces from Great Smiles!

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.

Patient Reviews

"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. Melissa was amazing at handling all aspects of my care process and she actually asked how my husband was doing as I had shared with her some medical issues he was having and she remembered thirty days later. That is a sign of a caring staff member. Serena Installed the Invisalign today and was very precise in explaining everything and was funny and sweet. If you have put off getting braces don’t. This place is very good at what they do! The picture is just my first set so this is not the final result!"

"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!"

"My daughter needed braces and they were so accommodating to get her in quickly for spring break. Super thankful for an orthodontist that is local and their staff is always so nice. They make it a priority to know their and 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.

"I have just completed my three-year treatment course with Dr. Blackman and the Great Smiles staff. 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! My jaw pain and over-bite are gone. My teeth are perfectly aligned. I never thought this could be accomplished - especially given that my problems had existed for over 60 years!"
