Why Choose Us?

Choosing an orthodontic team to treat you or your child can be a very difficult decision. Here at Detterline Orthodontics, we take the extra time and effort to make sure every patient has a wonderful experience every time he or she enters our office. Here are some of the things that help set us apart as an elite orthodontic team:

Custom treatment: We treat every patient as an individual, and devise a customized treatment plan to create the smile and bite that fits best with their unique teeth and facial form. 

Efficiency: We spend time and effort on devising our individual plans and executing those plans with the greatest efficiency to limit treatment time and create the most desirable outcomes. This allows our patients to be in braces for the shortest amount of time possible and receive the best achievable clinical result.

Convenient hours: We strive to make our services accessible to all patients. We understand how busy life can get, so we want to make your orthodontic care as convenient as possible. Because your time is valuable to us, we offer evening hours on multiple days so you can fit visits into your busy schedule.

Digital X-rays: Digital X-rays make it possible to gather the information needed before, during, and after orthodontic treatment in the quickest, most reliable way. Images can be shared with you or your dentist easily.

Computer charting: Using computers to record information about your orthodontic care allows us to monitor your treatment and communicate with you and your dentist better. It also eliminates the problem of lost paperwork.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs): This revolutionary technology allows us to move teeth in ways that were not possible in the past. TADs have mostly eliminated the use of headgear from modern orthodontic practice.

In-office lab: Performing lab work, such as creating retainers, expanders, splints, and space maintainers, allows our team to have complete control over many laboratory procedures. Of course, this means more precise and comfortable appliances for you, not to mention a faster turnaround.

Top-quality materials: To ensure the best results and maximize patient comfort, we use only the finest materials, brackets, wires, and adhesives.

Braces to match the look you want: Choose from conventional or cosmetic clear braces, which are perfect for the aesthetically conscious patient. Cosmetic clear brackets are made of colorless, clear sapphire crystal that doesn't absorb colors or odors.

Invisalign®: This is a revolutionary way of straightening your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign works through a series of clear, comfortable aligners that you can remove whenever you eat, drink, brush, or floss.

Fun, colorful elastics: We make wearing braces fun for kids and teenagers by offering lots of fun-colored elastics. They can choose from school colors, holiday themes, or their favorite sports teams!
