Why should I choose an orthodontic treatment specialist?
Just as there are specialists in other areas of medicine, such as cardiologists, internists, dermatologists, etc., there are also specialists in areas of dental health. Certified Specialists in Orthodontics dedicate their lives to correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. Teeth, jaws and sometimes faces are permanently changed by orthodontic treatment; so it makes sense to get this important treatment done properly the first time. Remember, most dental health insurance plans that will cover some of the cost for orthodontics, pay only once in a lifetime.

When should I bring my child in for an orthodontic screening?
Anytime you have a concern, even at an early age, such as help with a thumb sucking habit, problems with chewing, speaking or breathing, or congenital issues. A child should be screened by age seven, as recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO).

Why not wait until permanent teeth are in?
Early screening allows the specialist to plan the best time to start any necessary dental health treatment. Sometimes early treatment can eliminate the need for more drastic measures later. In some cases it is best not to wait until the face and jaws have finished growing.

Can I come in for a second opinion?
Yes, if you would like a second opinion, we are happy to see you.

Can you be too old for braces or clear aligner therapy?
No, people can have the treatment they have always wanted, at any age, if the bone and gum tissue is healthy around their teeth.

What about fees?
Fees for an initial consultation are minimal. Fees for treatment depend on many factors, including how severe the problem is, how complex the treatment is, and how long the treatment lasts. We have a variety of financial arrangements available to suit your needs, and we're here to help with any insurance claims.

Do you give Airmiles?
No, unfortunately, due to regulatory changes for dentists in BC, we are no longer permitted to award Air Miles or other reward programs.

"I had a great experience! I got to pick different colored elastic bands to help tighten my teeth – there were a lot of colors! There were a variety of flavours to choose from when I had to do molds for my teeth. The staff were really nice and flexible. They gave me appointment times that fitted nicely into my busy schedule."
