Child and Adult Orthodontic Treatments - Individualized Care | Incomparable Service


Dr. Griffin is proud to announce a revolution in 3D digital dentistry. We are replacing traditional dental impressions with highly accurate digital images from our brand new iTero scanner. iTero enables Dr. Griffin to take a 3D digital scan of your teeth and bite, make adjustments in real time, and transmit the file wirelessly for processing.

Dr. Deborah Griffin and her staff believe each person has unique orthodontic and emotional needs. We also believe that every individual deserves an amazing smile in the most efficient way possible.

We want to present our patients with the most effective, state-of-the-art treatment possible rendered with the gentlest touch. We tailor your treatment to your individual orthodontic and emotional needs and truly respect your individuality.

We Are Unique, and Here's Why.

One of the things parents appreciate the most about us is that we offer consistency of care - one office, one orthodontist. No need to schedule at an auxiliary office just because a day of the week is better for you. Your treatment will be handled from consultation to finish by Dr. Griffin herself, so your child will be seeing an orthodontist they know, and that knows them.

We have the latest and greatest technologies and pride ourselves on being a team of super-moms. Being a group of moms, we make sure our schedule allows us to spend plenty of time with you or your child without waiting. We understand how precious time is!

We strive to make orthodontic treatment a fun, comfortable and happy experience for patients of all ages. In our office, you are family and treated with a friendly, gentle approach. Our goal is to make each patient feel special and truly have a positive experience while attaining a beautiful, healthy smile! Contact our office to schedule a complimentary evaluation of your or your child's orthodontic needs.

Children’s Braces

Orthodontists can make smiles more beautiful at any age, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child visit an orthodontist by age 7.

Children & Orthodontics


Some orthodontic conditions are simpler to correct if they’re fixed early. Many times merely knowing that your child might need corrective dental work or not, offers peace of mind. Interceptive orthodontic treatment is all about anticipating and preventing more severe obstacles later on.

It provides your orthodontic provider the opportunity to have control over where the permanent teeth come in by addressing the composition of the jaw and teeth while the primary or baby teeth are still in the mouth.

By age seven, your child’s mouth has developed enough and has sufficient structure to know how it will grow as your child's permanent teeth start to emerge. Learn More about Braces for Kids

Adult Braces

Orthodontic treatment is not just for children. There are many options for adult patients including traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces and Invisalign.

Orthodontics for Adults


Healthy teeth can be re-aligned at any age, so the notion of being “too old” for braces has zero bearing. In fact, recently studies indicate that about one out of every five orthodontic patients is an adult. This number signifies only a small portion of adults who could benefit from orthodontic treatment.

A great-looking, natural smile is a guaranteed way to boost self-confidence, studies have confirmed that orthodontic treatment can enhance an adult's career possibilities and their social life.

There is also a likely health benefit, as misaligned teeth can be more difficult to clean, paving the way for tooth decay and gum disease. Straightening your teeth can also make everyday actions like chewing more comfortable. Learn More About Adult Orthodontics

Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen™

If you are contemplating braces vs. Invisalign to straighten your teeth or your kid’s teeth, you may have more than a few questions. And that's ok. Conclusively, you want to choose the treatment that will do the job, even if it’s somewhat more expensive. You've heard the saying 'Do it right the first time,' so are braces or Invisalign the better choice for you or your kid?

While the end result may look the same, a confident, beautiful smile, when you take the time to compare Invisalign® to other teeth-straightening alternatives, the benefits become quite apparent. Knowing the pros and cons of each option ahead of time will help you make a more confident decision.
