Be Treated Like Family
We care about you like you're our own family and we promise to give you the best quality care in a comfortable, fun setting.
Dr. Westfall is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.
To practice orthodontics, Dr. Westfall spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency). The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.
On top of that, Dr. Westfall is board-certified. That means you're getting expert care.
You want an expert to give you a new smile - not aligners from you get in the mail.
Dr. Westfall is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, which means he’s committed to going above and beyond to give you a beautiful smile. To become board certified, an orthodontist who has already received their license to practice chooses to take an additional exam.
First, Dr. Westfall passed a thorough written examination. He then presented patient cases that were evaluated by examiners chosen by the board.
Having passed both exams, Dr. Westfall is proudly a board-certified orthodontist and will undergo periodic re-examination to maintain that status.
From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, you become part of the Westfall Orthodontics family. Dr. Westfall will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.
Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign. Our goal at Westfall Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams.
We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.
Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.
At Westfall Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
Everyone loves medical offices that offer flexible appointments and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.
After we’ve determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we'll sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your budget.
You can also get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.
As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Westfall is always up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology.
Not only that, but every member of our orthodontic staff has a degree in dental assisting, and attends meetings to serve you better.
Westfall Orthodontics is the location for modern orthodontic treatment. We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign. We also use mini implants and diode laser for faster and more efficient tooth movement and faster treatment times.
