As a full-service practice, we welcome the opportunity to help area patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted through a wide range of comprehensive services.

Our services also include standard braces, ceramic braces, retainers, temporary anchorage device (TAD) treatment, and even surgical orthodontics for those with more involved needs.

Are You a Candidate for Orthodontic Treatment?

In addition to correcting aesthetic issues such as crooked or crowded teeth, many dental situations lead individuals to seek orthodontic treatment. For example:

  • Misalignment of the jaw
  • Wide gaps between teeth
  • Chewing issues
  • Thumb-sucking

In addition to correcting these serious dental issues and giving you a spectacular smile, orthodontic treatment offers the added bonus of boosting your self-esteem because you’ll finally have a smile you can show off with confidence! And here at Gig Harbor, that’s our goal for you – a smile that you’re proud to show to the world!
