For Our Referring Offices:

We recommend that every child has their first orthodontic evaluation around age seven to see if any early treatment is indicated.


Indications for Phase I (Early) Treatment Include:

  • Anterior cross bites
  • Posterior cross bites, especially with an associated lower jaw shift on closing
  • Class III skeletal relationship
  • Impacted/unerupted teeth


If no early treatment is indicated, we will see the patient on a yearly basis to monitor growth and development until full treatment is indicated.
