We have finally finished our orthodontics with both kids! It was such a great experience working with Dr. Don and his amazing team. They are simply the best and we're so grateful we used them for our children's orthodontics. Their teeth look beautiful. Thank you for everything!!

I have to start out by saying that not only do my son's teeth look perfect, I am SO impressed with how friendly and welcoming the office staff has been. We went for consultations once a year for about 3 years that were done at no charge. When the time came, the payment plan was easy and painless. For us, the whole experience was just wonderful. Every visit was pleasant and it was always such a great environment. Disney movies were always on and everyone always seemed so happy to be there. Also, we were told the treatment would be 24 months and he ended up getting the braces off almost a month early so that was a plus. Dr. Don and his office are the BEST!

Dr. Don and his team are amazing! My son just finished 26 months of treatment and his smile is nothing short of perfect! I am so pleased with his results but even more impressed with the family environment that Dr. Don provides in his practice! I personally was a pacient over 10 years ago and I’m still greeted by everyone on a first name basis! If you are in search of the best orthopedic experience, this is where you need to be. You will not be disappointed!

Basic Care with Braces


Brushing and Flossing with Braces

This video shows how to brush your teeth with braces, how to use a proxy brush, and how to use a floss threader to get floss under the archwire of the braces so that you can properly floss your teeth. Proper oral hygiene is a crucial part of successful orthodontic treatment. You must have great oral hygiene in order to earn Dr. Don’s Tooth Tokens during treatment. As Dr. Don says “Floss only the teeth you want to keep!”

Eating Habits


Rubber Band Wear

To create the most beautiful and functional bite, it is sometimes necessary for patients to wear rubber bands. Dr. Don will determine if you need rubber bands and will provide you instructions on how to use them. The teeth and jaws can only move toward their corrected positions if you consistently wear the rubber bands. Lack of cooperation following instructions will lengthen the treatment time.


How to Turn a Palatal Expander

Some patients will have a palatal expander during part of their treatment. After the expander is put in place, Dr. Don will give you instructions on how often to turn the screw inside the palate expander, and will also provide you with a key you will use to turn it. You will need to turn the expander yourself or have somebody else turn it for you. This video shows the proper technique for turning the palatal expander screw as well as common mistakes that can happen while trying to turn it.


AcceleDent Use & Care

If you have chosen to use AcceleDent Aura during your orthodontic treatment, please watch this video to learn about proper use and care.


Retainer Wear After Braces

Learn about wearing retainers after your braces are removed. Dr. Don recommends that retainers be worn all the time for 1 month after your braces are off (except when you are eating), and then worn nightly for as long as you want to maintain your beautiful smile…which means…for the rest of your life!
