Did you know that kids as young as 4 or 5 can benefit from the care of an expert orthodontist? At that age, we can analyze their developing mouths to catch early signs of orthodontic problems or issues with an airway that’s too narrow. Early treatment can typically prevent the requirement for extensive orthodontic work later, even permitting kids to bypass braces altogether in most cases.
At Hawthorne Smile Spa, we have two board-certified pediatric dentists, Drs. Arlene Joyner and Brent Tucker, plus we have our own in-house orthodontist, Dr. Floyd Cawthon. You can be certain your child will get the very best pediatric orthodontic care possible. We’ve cared for thousands of children with orthodontics for over 3 and a half decades!
Below is a list of a few of the pediatric orthodontic treatments we offer:
