Policies & Mission

Our patient days are: 

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. (closed 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.) Mondays and Fridays are set aside for lab work, administrative duties and treatment planning. We are also available to answer questions or schedule appointments – hours vary.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to deliver high quality orthodontics in a caring and friendly atmosphere.


Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you and we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment. We request prior notice if you need to cancel your appointment or change your appointment time. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing or changing an appointment. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your appointment is rescheduled in a timely manner. Most appointments can be scheduled after school, however, longer appointments such as initial appliance placement, adding additional appliances or repairing broken appliances are scheduled in the morning or early afternoon before the “afterschool rush”. We have found this is the most efficient way that we can accommodate the most patients in the afternoon hours.


Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.


PRIOR to your appointment, please review
