It’s no secret: most kids aren’t exactly fans of dental offices—but it doesn’t have to be that way.
At Moshiri Orthodontics, we do everything in our power to make the patient experience pleasant for each and every child. We provide a warm, friendly, and fun environment. Then we make sure any treatment the child receives is the best possible for their age, personality, and condition.
We recommend the least invasive and most appropriate treatment for your child’s unique circumstances, giving them a positive experience and a smile that will instill confidence for a lifetime.
As experts at both braces and Invisalign, we can give kids and their parents a unique opportunity to weigh the pros and cons of each treatment. Whichever option you choose, you’ll know that your child is under the care of a true expert in the field of orthodontics.
Full Circle Orthodontics
At Moshiri Orthodontics, we practice a holistic approach to oral health. That means we take the health of the whole jaw and mouth into consideration. By factoring in all the little details, we can create a comprehensive diagnosis and a big picture treatment plan to take your child’s smile into the future.
Can our Full Circle approach help your child or teen?
When our team gives your child an evaluation, we will provide the most comprehensive consultation, taking your child’s stage of development and health history into account. After your first evaluation, we offer continued observation to monitor any issues that may arise as your child’s permanent teeth come in. We’ll give your child the proactive care and oversight they need to develop the best bite and smile as they grow.
6 Reasons to Consider an Early Orthodontic Evaluation for Your Child
Most people think orthodontic treatment needs to start in the teens—once someone’s permanent teeth have already come in. However, recent advances in the study of child development have changed that. The American Association of Orthodontists now recommends that every child receive an early orthodontic evaluation between the ages of 7 and 9.
With early intervention, your child can start out on the right track to a healthy smile and an optimal bite. As permanent teeth come in, the longer you wait, the more intensive the corrective treatment may need to be.
By conducting an early evaluation during their 7th year, Moshiri Orthodontics can identify potential developmental issues before all the adult teeth have erupted. The timing of interceptive treatment is key to guiding a growing smile—during natural growth periods is ideal. And since our consultations are complimentary, there’s really no reason not to

The exams are thorough and informative and the staff answers all questions and spends time with the patient.
