Providing The Joy Of A Beautiful Smile For Over 40 Years!


Our goal is to give you the healthy, beautiful smile that you’ve
always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a
big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve how you
look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make
sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice
utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle
treatment options, to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Every smile starts with an initial consultation!

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once
every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth
cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we
will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you
are receiving the best care possible.

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team,
learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out
which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial
consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will
provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is
right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your complimentary

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting the orthodontist every four to eight weeks is an important
part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make
sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling
appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to
reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to
accommodate you.

When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, 
contact our practice, and our friendly scheduling coordinators will assist
you. We’re looking forward to working with you.

What happens after the initial consultation?

You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted. After
your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and Dr. Azar
will place your braces or insert your Invisalign aligners. This appointment
generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be
available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
