Welcome to Crabapple!

Have you been to our office recently?

We now offer pediatric dentistry in addition to orthodontics. For all the ways that can benefit you, check out our Crabapple Advantage post. Today, though, we wanted to take some time to show you around the office and introduce you to our doctors and staff. So let’s get started!

When you come in the front door, you’ll step right into our waiting area where you’ll be greeted by one of our staff members, who will help you get signed in and answer any of your preliminary questions. We think you’ll love our relaxed, modern waiting area. We offer a game station nook for the kids as well as some light refreshments. Our facility maximizes natural light and comfort, providing an environment that will set your entire family at ease.

What Moms Love Most about Crabapple

Nothing is as powerful as a word of mouth. Moms want to hear about other parent’s experiences before deciding where their child will receive care. We get it!

That’s why we want to share patient experiences directly from the mouths of our patients and their families.

  • Puts kids at ease

    “I just took my 4 year old son here for the first time yesterday. The staff were so friendly and he was made to feel very comfortable! He went back with no fear and we were able to go see how he was doing mid check up. He was so excited to get his *goody bag* after his cleaning and he left that office with a very positive view of the dentist! I’m beyond happy with our experience!” –Kara T.

Top 10 Reasons to Not Delay Your Child’s Orthodontic Care

While it’s never too late to pursue orthodontic treatment and there are many advantages that adults can reap from getting braces, here are some top reasons to not delay your child’s orthodontic care.

Health Benefits

  • Less cavities: Straight teeth are easier to clean by normal means, so a properly aligned tooth structure helps prevent decay and keep the whole mouth healthier for life!
  • Reduced jaw pain: When your child’s teeth don’t align correctly, jaw muscles often try to compensate for the lack of alignment while chewing food and end up developing chronic strain and possibly permanent damage.
  • Less adult tooth loss: Healthy teeth throughout life typically reduces tooth loss during elderly years and decreases the risk of needing to get dentures early.
