Our Orthodontic Services

Led by Drs. Mike and Emily, our team truly understands the importance of tailoring orthodontic care to fit each patient’s unique needs. That’s why we proudly provide a diverse range of state-of-the-art orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign®, custom braces, and with affordable interest-free payment plans. With such a wide range of options available, we’re able to ensure that every patient receives the personalized care they deserve.

Our services include:

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign offers a modern and discreet way to straighten your teeth using a series of custom-made, virtually invisible, and completely removable clear aligners. As a top provider in NWI, Drs. Mike and Emily are certified experts in this form of treatment!

Braces Treatment

Thanks to technological advancements, braces are smaller, more comfortable, and better looking than ever before. For a less noticeable option, we also provide ceramic braces that offer the same advantages as traditional braces while seamlessly blending with your natural smile.


After completing your treatment, wearing a retainer becomes essential for preserving your new smile. Our doctors are available to assist you in selecting the best retainer option that suits your lifestyle and meets your individual needs.

Orthodontic Urgencies

After office hours, we can be contacted should a problem or question arise. Orthodontic emergencies are generally uncommon. If you experience any problems like a broken bracket or a poking wire, don’t worry – we’re here to assist you! Please give our office a call or text as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.
