Your time is valuable! We will create carefully scheduled appointments in order to keep your treatment moving smoothly and efficiently. With our high-tech, self-ligating braces and options for Invisalign we can significantly decrease your treatment time without ever compromising your results. With little to no wait time and the option for same-day braces, our team will be able to get you in, out, and on your way to the smile you’ve always dreamed of before you know it!
Once we’ve completed your assessment, created your custom treatment plan, and answered any questions you have we can get you started towards your smile goals the very same day if you’re ready! Ask us about same-day braces during your complimentary consultation.
From your chart to your x-rays, we are completely digital at Altera Orthodontics. Digital x-rays produce less radiation and give a more detailed look at the structures of your mouth than traditional x-rays. Images are immediately available for review by Dr. H once they are taken and can be shared with your general dentist or other dental specialists as needed and with your consent. We also utilize a digital scanner (iTero Digital Scanner) that produces quick and accurate 3D impressions eliminating the need for uncomfortable and messy traditional impressions. Digital impressions are available for review within moments of the scan and give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and throughout treatment. Seeing is believing!
At Altera Orthodontics we value your time! To accommodate your busy schedule, we offer Saturday and evening appointments at our state-of-the-art office and will organize appointments to reduce the need to miss school and/or work. We don’t overbook and you will not feel rushed at your appointment.
We understand that things happen. If your teeth move out of place soon after your treatment is completed, we will do an evaluation to determine the best course to get you back on track to maintaining your new smile. You will not be charged a full case fee but a low monthly fee until we get you back to your smile goals.

All orthodontists are dentists, but only about 6% of dentists are orthodontists. After four years of dental school, an orthodontist will attend an additional 2-3 years of intensive specialty training at a CODA accredited residency program. An orthodontist is specialized in both straightening the teeth and properly aligning the jaw bones to correct the bite. Studies have shown that orthodontists evaluate orthodontic case complexity more accurately and treat cases in less time with better quality outcomes compared with general dentists. Look for the seal of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) to ensure you are being treated by a certified orthodontist.
