Start the Journey to a Beautiful Smile
As a parent, you want the best for your child. That includes healthy teeth and a pleasing smile.
We'll treat your children as if they were our own, by providing them with the best possible orthodontic care.
All Kids Should Get an Orthodontic Check-Up by Age 7
Your child needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned to have a smile that's long-lasting and healthy – in other words, a healthy bite.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up by no later than age seven years old.
By then, your child's teeth have developed enough for subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth to still be spotted while some baby teeth are still present.
This check-up may reveal that your child's bite is fine and braces for kids aren't necessary.
Or, Dr. McGrory may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development, and then, if indicated, begin treatment at the appropriate time for your child.
In other cases, Dr. McGrory might find a problem that can benefit from early treatment.
