Dr. Philbin, Dr. Reinheimer and their staff believe there is a reason they have been chosen as a “Top Orthodontist” in the region for three straight years. No, it’s not because they employ all of the latest advances, technologies, and techniques modern orthodontics has to offer. No, it’s not because of their beautiful, brand new, state-of-the-art office. It’s not because they are one of the top Invisalign Premier Providers in the country. And no, it’s not because for over 20 years they have changed many lives by creating beautiful smiles for children, adolescents, and adults. “It’s because we believe the latest technology, gorgeous smiles, and a comfortable office are expected of us. Our patients expect perfection and so do we. What they don’t expect is that as soon as they walk through our doors they will be greeted, treated, and cared for as if they are part of our family,” share Dr. Philbin and Dr. Reinheimer.

As a family practice they treat everyone. For children, orthodontic care can begin as early as seven years of age. Usually by age seven, the first permanent molars and incisors have erupted sufficiently to allow evaluation for crossbites, crowding, and skeletal problems. When treatment is begun early, they can guide the growth of the jaw and incoming permanent teeth, preventing more serious problems down the road.

Adolescents and adults may be the group of patients who experience the most dramatic psychological and emotional benefits of successful treatment. With proper orthodontic treatment, teens that have had a difficult time fitting in and feeling confident have complete shifts in their outlook on life. And now, orthodontic treatment can be even more discreet with the use of Invisalign for teens!

Adult patients are oft en surprised that orthodontics is also beneficial for them. For adults who received orthodontia care earlier in their lives and now need some fine-tuning, or for those who are new to the experience, it’s never too late.

“Your success is our success. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. You could say we are just in the field of straightening teeth, but we believe it’s much more than that—we truly are in the service of transforming lives.”
