Endless Options to Improve Your Smile

We offer orthodontic treatments for every smile! Younger children can benefit from our holistic orthodontic options to correct tongue posture, improve nasal breathing, and ensure proper facial growth and development to occur. Holistic orthodontics can also prevent crooked teeth, create a larger airway, and help patients achieve a healthier TMJ. We also offer traditional braces and Invisalign to treat our adult patients.

We recommend children start receiving orthodontic consultations by age 4 to 5. During this time we can recommend a holistic orthodontic treatment to intervene in problems before they progress further.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Pribyl to receive an evaluation and to discuss our different treatment options. Dr. Pribyl will recommend the best one for your personal needs.
