Orthodontics For Children

In White Oak, PA & Morgantown, WV

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that parents bring their child for an initial exam at age 7. Most kids won’t need treatment at such an early age, but having an exam will help identify any issues that may be best addressed with early, interceptive treatment.

With early treatment we can take the least invasive approach to address any issues that, left unchecked, could require more invasive treatment at a later age. However, the vast majority of children don’t need early treatment. That’s why we’ve created our Growth & Guidance program. If your child is in this program, that means they aren’t yet ready for treatment but we’re monitoring them until the time is right. These very important growth and development appointments will be scheduled every 6 to 12 months and are done free of charge.
