One of my boys had their braces taken off and then had a growth spurt which changed his teeth. Dr. Prentice put the braces back on and didn’t charge me–that was amazing.” 

Choosing An Orthodontist

Your orthodontist should be a professional, through and through. Your orthodontist should be able to provide great care after evaluating your issue. Your orthodontist must be able to complete treatment within a reasonable time frame. A great orthodontist must also work with insurance to find your best cost of treatment. However, a great orthodontist goes above and beyond all this. Curing major oral problems, including underbite, crossbite, deep bite, open bite, crowding, spacing and protrusion, must be your orthodontist’s top priority. That’s how Dr. Prentice aligns you with future success through better oral health, and the confidence that comes with it.
