Orthodontic Treatment for Everyone
Children, teens, and adults receive age-specific treatment and care. It’s recommended that kids see an orthodontist by age 7 when the permanent front teeth and the first set of molars break through the gums. Dr. Mack explains what’s going on in terms that children can understand and works patiently with them. He works with adult patients on compressing the length of treatment while maximizing its effect.
Dr. Mack greatly enjoys being an orthodontist because of the relationships it allows him to build with patients. His passion is helping them transform their smiles by teeth straightening. He rejoices with patients when they get their braces off and see the results of their investment.

Our practice uses the latest technology for invisible braces, like Invisalign™. The plastic aligners are easy to remove and clean, making them an ideal option for adults and teenagers. For children, metal braces offer a better choice because they are strong and durable.

Lingual braces are placed behind--rather than in front of--the teeth, so no one needs to know that you’re wearing braces. Additional services include:
