You’ve Got an Orthodontist in the Family! 

On-Site Orthodontics

At Village Dental Group, we’re all about professionalism. We are one of the only 3% of general dental practices that have our own licensed Orthodontists on staff to provide your orthodontic treatment. 

Having straight, even teeth is more than just aesthetics. Sometimes teeth are not in the right positions for optimal health. The ultimate purpose of orthodontics is to move teeth to a place where everything is healthy. But, there is also an important psychological advantage. For some, a beautiful, even smile can play a significant role in a person’s self-confidence and willingness to engage in social situations. Our orthodontist will be able to properly assess your individual case and recommend the best solutions to handle chewing and alignment difficulties, or to simply transform your smile into a look you love!

“In the service itself — the actual procedures — Dr. Christian is very experienced and proficient.
She’s friendly and engaging and she helps put you at ease so that you can relax through the process because there is always that tenseness that one can experience going to a dentist.”

How Is Orthodontic Treatment Assessed?

Our orthodontist will take a special x-ray (called a cephalometric x-ray), impressions and photographs. These are used to decide which orthodontic treatment is best suited to your case — aligners or traditional braces. 

At Village Dental we use the very latest x-ray technology for the most accurate assessments. 

Straighten Your Teeth — Invisably!

Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® are each an invisible, removable, and comfortable aligner system that will give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you’re wearing them, making Invisalign perfect for adults and teenagers. Aligners are made from BPA-free plastic and will not irritate your cheeks or gums as traditional braces can.

  • Straighten your teeth without the look and feel of traditional braces.
  • NO metal wires or brackets.
  • Proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.
