YES, we also do braces. (Orthodontics) and have been doing it for over 30 years. Drs. Ron and Lynn Collins have had extensive training in orthodontics. It's nice to have comprehensive care at our office - family dentistry and braces all in one location.
We believe that most children benefit from braces once. This means that we usually wait for the baby teeth to come out and the permanent teeth to come in before we get started. Do you remember when you were young and you had braces in 6, 7, or 8 th grade? We do evaluate your child each time he comes in for his regular cleaning and discuss it.
