Orthodontics for Children
As a parent, you want the best for your child. That includes healthy teeth and a pleasing smile.
It's Dr. Rhoads' goal to treat your children as if they were her own, by providing them with the best possible orthodontic care.
All Kids Should Get an Orthodontic Check-Up By Age 7
There’s no minimum age for your child to begin orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child receive their first orthodontic evaluation by around age seven.
By this time, your child should have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth. This makes it easier for Dr. Rhoads to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems before they have the chance to become worse.
