What Sets Us Apart

Instant Smile Exam! (submit selfies for a quick virtual evaluation)

“When you’re here, you’re family!”

No, this is not a plug for Olive Garden, even though pasta is definitely a braces-friendly food! This is the mantra that the COE Team seek to accomplish every day for every interaction with every patient. The best orthodontic results come from families that work together with us for the entire process and are excited about coming to our office. We know you will respect our abilities, and we will respect your time, always be accessible, and make you feel at home.

“Going above and beyond …”

Our treatment goals involve more than just achieving spectacular aesthetics. The COE Team has the tools, education, and experience necessary to ensure you have a functional and stable bite that lasts for years. We exceed the traditional standard of orthodontic care and take additional steps to create your individualized treatment plan. In our eyes, this is important because you, as the patient, are the only person that matters.
