About Us

The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it is faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

Our services

All of our orthodontic services are performed by a certified orthodontist, not a general dentist. After a thorough evaluation, the orthodontist will explain in detail your individual treatment plan and your treatment coordinator will go over all insurance benefits, costs and payment options. In some cases, we can even offer same day braces so you’ll be on your way to a straighter, beautiful, healthier smile in no time!
