The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children be seen by an orthodontist around the age of seven for an initial examination. By visiting our orthodontists early on, we can help identify any potential problems and provide treatment before they disrupt your child’s smile. When early orthodontic treatment is needed, Dr. Peter Bayer and Dr. Leigh Bayer Curtis are very conservative in prescribing a treatment plan. When we are able to start treatment early, we can often detect and correct potential problem before they become more serious. This can save you and your child time as well as money. To learn more about early treatment, or to schedule your child’s appointment, call us today at (850) 244-8602.
