ABOUT US

Everyone should LOVE their smile!

 

Messenger Orthodontics is the result of years of education and experience as a patient, mother, dentist, and orthodontist.  Our boutique-style practice is unique in design and feel.  My goal is to make our patient's orthodontic journey as personal, memorable, and fun as possible.  As an Orange County native, I love the beach, its' lifestyle and beauty.  I have designed my practice with this in mind.  Our office is modern, bright, and filled with interesting and fun  details throughout for our orthodontic families to enjoy.

As a practicing orthodontist, I feel that it is essential to provide the most outstanding care.  I am a board-certified specialist in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, a distinction held by only 30% of orthodontists.  I stay up to date in the latest orthodontic advances so that I can provide the best care available to my patients.  Messenger Orthodontics is a state-of-the-art practice with the latest digital advances, such as digital x-rays, an intra-oral scanner, and 3D printed models.  Learn more about our green and ecofriendly office.  We also offer newer cosmetic options such as hidden/lingual braces, white wires with ceramic/clear braces, and aligner therapy/Invisalign. 

As a mother, I understand the juggle of school, activities, friends, and family.  I value your time as a patient and parent.  At Messenger Orthodontics, I will tailor your treatment with this in mind to make your journey as convenient and efficient as possible. 

Choosing the right orthodontist and treatment plan is an important decision. At the new patient consultation, my goal is to give you all the necessary information to make the best decision for you and/or your family.  

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Messenger Orthodontics. We hope you give us the opportunity to make you or your loved one a part of the Messenger Orthodontics family.

Treatment Options

Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation at the age of 7 to check the growth and development of the teeth and jaws.  If early treatment is indicated this is known as Phase I treatment.

Adult Treatment

Whether you have never had orthodontic treatment or have had some movement since your braces came off it's never too late to make a perfect smile.  We offer several different cosmetic options.

Metal Braces

Lingual (Hidden) Braces

Invisible and easier to floss than traditional braces!

Retention

Retainers are for life.  As long as you wear properly fitted retainers, you will have a beautiful smile forever.  We offer clear and custom designed retainers.

Teen Treatment

The ideal age for full orthodontic treatment and bite correction is once the permanent teeth have erupted and growth is not yet complete.

Surgical Orthodontics

Some bites require a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic (jaw) surgery.  We work closely with your oral surgeon to give you the best result possible.

Clear Braces

Invisalign First + Invisalign Teen + Invisalign

3D Scanner

No more goopy impressions.  Our Itero intra-oral scanner creates a digital 3D model of your teeth.
