Free Childhood Assessment Program

One of the reasons we have a Free Childhood Dental Assessment Program is to allow parents to see a specialist without worrying about the cost of an office visit. It is very important to take an x-ray by age 7 to check for missing, extra, or impacted teeth.

Free Annual Post Assessment Monitoring

In more than 95% of cases we prefer to continue monitoring annually until the child reaches their teens in middle school. The objective is to allow small issues with the child's bite to work themselves out naturally. By not starting treatment too early, we avoid causing unnecessary discomfort to your child, and by waiting your child may now have the option to be treated with Invisalign® Teen.

Free 2nd Opinions

We offer 2nd, 3rd and 4th opinions, so if your pediatric dentist has you thinking about your child's crooked teeth, why not give us a call? Its Free!

Dr. Kunik Explains Early Assessment

Metal or Ceramic Braces vs Invisalign®

An orthodontist has options, other than Invisalign, for straightening teeth. It is often the case that a child does not have enough permenant teeth for an Invisalign treatment. Traditional braces are very effective at early corrections. Ceramic Braces work like metal braces. Only better, they are clear and blend in with your teeth for a great look. Dr. Kunik is here to discuss what combination of technology might work best for your child.
