Please call the office immediately if you suspect that you have a problem with your braces, such as any of the following difficulties: 

  • If something looks unusual
  • If something feels different
  • If a wire has come out of position
  • If a bracket has broken
  • If you think something else has gone wrong

Please do not come to the office without calling first, as we may not have sufficient time to correct your problem. We can conveniently repair almost all problems outside of school hours if you can notify the office as soon as you realize a problem exists.

Does Your Child Need Orthodontic Treatment?

The best way to find out is to set up a consultation with our orthodontist.

Book an Appointment

We strive to offer clients the widest possible selection of appointment opportunities, so that they may miss the smallest amount of school, work, and other personal activities. Some longer appointments, such as placing braces, initial consultations, and removing braces occur earlier in the day. This is so we may offer afternoon visits for ongoing treatments, repairs and emergencies. However, we will make every effort to accommodate a request for a specific appointment time. We offer Friday afternoon visits every week, so our clients may have their visits when there is no school! If you are in a hurry, Dr. Tkach can often see a new patient for a consultation within two days, and we can have your braces in place within a week. Contact us to book your appointment today.

Protect Your Teeth While Playing Sports

We provide mouthguards for athletes and those at risk of facial injury.
