general - Stevenson Family Dentistry - We strive to help children, young people and adults obtain optimal health and well-being through Orthodontics and Orthotropics. By utilizing a holistic approach to growth/development of facial structures combined with modern technology and collaborative care, we can achieve improved and long-lasting results.


E.C.H.O. – Early Childhood Health-centered Orthodontics

Treatment techniques that are designed to:
  • Develop the jaws forward, never backward.
  • Create better, more pleasing facial balance.
  • Protect and/or enhance the airway
  • Produce broad smiles that are complete to the corners of the mouth.


Orthotropics represents a new way of looking at crooked teeth. Instead of seeing them in isolation, they are viewed as one part of an interactive, complete body system.

Esthetic Braces

Ceramic braces utilize less noticeable brackets for patients concerned about aesthetic appearances. Some brackets are translucent, so they blend in with your natural tooth color. Ceramic braces mean that unlike traditional stainless-steel braces, with ceramic braces, your smile will not look ‘metallic.’ Also, ceramic brackets are designed so that they won’t stain or discolor over long periods of time.

Traditional Braces

Beyond their traditional color, the only thing traditional about these braces is that you can see them. Contemporary braces are made of super-strong metal alloys derived from the space program. Their strength allows them to be the smallest of all braces and therefore the most comfortable. Their density makes them ultra-slippery, so teeth move faster than they ever have before. Today’s braces, in combination with other high-tech materials, mean fewer office visits to complete treatment.
