Loved every minute of our time there! Wendy was amazing (especially with my younger kids), very knowledgeable and gave a great tour of the office. Dr. Dale was very friendly and answered all of my questions well.

My son Luke has been coming to Davis & Davis for a couple of years for a retainer to correct his bite. Yesterday at his appointment, he told me that Dr. Dale told him that his teeth look great. He was so disappointed! I could not IMAGINE why he would be disappointed about that, but he said he loves coming to Davis & Davis so much that he doesn't want his teeth to be fixed! Thank you Dr.'s Davis for having games in the waiting room, contests such as the Star Wars one Luke completed yesterday, and wooden nickels used to purchase wonderful items. You make orthodontics fun for kids--so fun that Luke never wants his teeth to be fixed. :)

Dr. Dale was very patient and took his time to be sure my daughter's smile was just right. This was a very tricky case since her teeth moved exceptionally fast. The end result (for both of my children) is beautiful.

You were patient with my girls. They took a long time.

Davis and Davis was great. They were good throughout the whole process. My teeth look great and I am very happy with my results. Thank you.

Your office people, your technicians, and you the Orthodontists are some of the most professional people we have ever dealt with. We have had both of our boys go through spreaders, braces and retainers and we have absolutely no complaints with our service.

The staff here is amazing and always so helpful. Our two kids have actually mentioned how much they like Dr. Davis and his staff.

For Children

Orthodontics for Children

While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting the orthodontist around age seven.

By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for the orthodontist to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery.

Early treatment allows your orthodontist to:

  • Correct and guide the growth of your child's jaw to help the permanent teeth come in straight
  • Regulate the width of the upper and lower arches
  • Create more space for crowded teeth
  • Avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
  • Correct thumb sucking and help improve minor speech problems

For parents, it's not always easy to know if your child may need orthodontic treatment.

Here are a few things to look for that may mean your child needs to see an orthodontist:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • A hard time chewing or biting food
  • Mouth breathing
  • Finger or thumb sucking
  • Crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth
  • Jaws that pop or make sounds when opening and closing
  • Teeth that come together abnormally, or do not come together at all
  • Jaws and teeth that are not proportionate to the rest of the face
  • Crowded front teeth around age seven or eight

Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment for an orthodontic evaluation. Early treatment now will give your child a healthy, beautiful smile for the future.
