You never get a second chance to make a first impression. What could be better than making a first impression with a straight and beautiful smile?

Our orthodontic specialists love to help our patients achieve the smiles of their dreams! We would be honored to give you a confident, bold smile to wear throughout your life.

You can have your first orthodontic evaluation at East Valley Dental Care or Scottsdale Dental Care at age 6 or 7 to ensure efficient treatment. However, it is never too early or too late for an exam or a free consultation with your orthodontist.


The word “malocclusion” refers to a misaligned bite. Malocclusion is also linked to crooked or crowded teeth. Not only can malocclusion pose cosmetic problems, but it can negatively impact your speaking abilities, eating habits,and your whole body health.

Braces or Invisalign

Metal braces are still an effectual way to straighten teeth. At East Valley Dental, we provide modern braces which are smaller and more comfortable than ever before. Our metal braces are unlikely to break while they quickly improve your smile.

Invisalign allows patients to achieve beautiful teeth without obvious metal braces. Invisalign utilizes a progressive series of temporary clear braces to shift the teeth.

The orthodontic solution that is right for you will depend on the positioning of your jaw and teeth, as well as your personal preferences. Dr. Thompson will explain your options thoroughly and answer any questions you may have when you come into our office for your complimentary consultation.


A retainer is a device worn once braces are removed. Retainers are a necessary part of the orthodontic process, because they give the bones around the teeth time to grow in and maintain your new alignment.

If you’re ready to start working towards an attractive, clean, and healthy smile, call us at East Valley Dental Care or Scottsdale Dental Care today.
