Our Orthodontic Philosophy

“At the core of our orthodontic approach lies the belief that optimal structure leads to ideal function. We are dedicated to challenging the biological limits of the oral foundation to achieve not only optimal health and function but also to promote healthy behaviors. By striving for excellence in orthodontic care, we aim to empower our patients to embrace a lifetime of confident smiles and overall wellbeing.” – Dr. Taera Kim, DMD, MSD

The benefits of orthodontics extend far beyond enhancing your appearance. Orthodontics also contribute to:

  • A healthier mouth – orthodontics makes it easier to clean teeth thoroughly and maintain gum health
  • Alleviating pain associated with bad bites – orthodontic care realigns the teeth to distribute pressure evenly
  • Reduced treatment time due to advancements in orthodontic technology
  • Many treatment options for your convenience, including low-maintenance, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing options.
  • Improve Jaw alignment and function
  • Improve implant and restorative treatment
  • Improve airway and tongue rest position
  • Making the investment in orthodontic therapy more appealing and accessible than ever before
