Your initial complimentary visit allows us to get acquainted with you and learn about your orthodontic needs. After a tour of the office, we will take digital X-rays and photos followed by an initial exam in our private consultation room.
Our doctors will review your X-rays and photos and discuss with you his treatment recommendations. This will include details such as type of braces and/or appliances, Invisalign® options, length of treatment, costs and payment options. Orthodontic treatment is an investment that lasts a lifetime. Dr. Legler and Dr. Gutierrez are committed to each patient’s future by delivering the highest quality of treatment to meet his or her individual needs.

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