Learn More About Our Services

Our 7 & Up program allows us to monitor your child’s growth and development and provide them with orthodontic care if needed.
This way, we can catch potential alignment issues early and address them before they develop into bigger problems!

Invisalign presents a comfortable and almost invisible alternative to braces. The aligners are easy to remove, providing convenience and discretion, making your orthodontic treatment a breeze! Dr. Fortney is a certified Invisalign treatment provider, has successfully treated over 1,300 cases with clear aligners.

Over the years, traditional braces have gotten a makeover! Braces are sleeker, more compact, and more comfortable than ever.
Plus, they come in a clear ceramic design if you’re looking for a less visible braces treatment.

Wearing a retainer after orthodontic treatment is crucial to protect the alignment of your new smile!
