About Gentle Dental Orthodontics

No matter your dental dilemma, our specialized orthodontic treatments, including clear aligners with no brackets or wires, can restore function, correct alignment and improve smiles. Both children and adults can benefit from a custom orthodontic treatment plan.

Our Orthodontic Services

Orthodontics focuses on diagnosing and treating misaligned teeth and bites. Dentists will typically refer patients to orthodontists when they show signs of the following dental issues:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open Bites
  • Crossbites
  • Overcrowding

Reviews for Richard Teel

Dr. Teel and Caroline are great- thanks for making my ortho experience a positive and comfortable one!

Great with kids. My daughter loves the dentist. Always gets prizes and always has lots of fun.

This place has always treated us well. Very good doctor, assistants, hygienists, receptionists. Definitely a decent place, especially when you consider how many children they must work on every day, and how hectic and complex it must be, working at a dental clinic. I admire them.
