The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child first visit an orthodontist by the age of seven or even earlier if a problem is detected by a parent, family dentist or physician.

An early examination allows the orthodontic specialist to determine how and when a child's particular problem should be treated. Early treatment can achieve results which may be unattainable once the face and jaws are completely developed.

Orthodontists can improve smiles at any age, but early attention can often prevent future obstacles. Our office will gladly help any patient make an informed decision concerning the optimal time that his or her treatment should begin.
