Orthodontic problems to watch for in children

October 15, 2017

Final treatment decisions should be made among the parent, child’s dentist and the orthodontist. Contact us today to schedule your child's FREE orthodontic consultation with Dr. Kostas and find out if early interceptive treatment is needed or not. 


When early orthodontic intervention is not necessary, the orthodontist will carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.
