Orthodontics Our Specialty

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. The practice of orthodontics requires professional skill in the design, application and control of correcive appliances (braces) to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and to achieve facial balance as the jaw structure grows and develops.

Dr. Ralph is upfront and honest and
his staff is ALWAYS warm and friendly... You feel like part of a family when ever you are there.

I have been working with Dr. Ralph since 1999, and I still enjoy watching the transformations that our patients undergo when they receive orthodontic care. At their first appointment, many patients won't even smile, but by the time they get their braces off they are smiling so big and they are so confident with their new look. I love orthodontics - having the chance to meet new people, and hear their life stories. There's always something to smile about at our practice.
