What Sets Us Apart

A beautiful smile is one of the greatest investments you will ever make. It is one of the most noticeable and attractive things about any person and a great smile can actually improve self-esteem and confidence.  The following is a list of what makes our orthodontic office unique. We have given great attention to detail not only in our orthodontic treatment, but also in the little day-to-day things that make life with orthodontic treatment more pleasant!

  • You have chosen to be treated by a board certified orthodontic specialist - one who has trained for over 2 years beyond dental school to provide you the best and most comprehensive orthodontic treatment available. 
  • We have an enthusiastic, well-trained, and experienced staff.  Our entire team strives to provide a positive, caring and memorable experience for each patient. We also have a large staff to better serve you.
  • We have a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility.  Our reception room has WiFi  and a wide selection of current magazines.  We have a high tech coffee/tea machine that has about every imagineable flavor.  At each treatment chair, we have hand held games to make the time go by faster for patients and family.
  • Office and diagnostic procedures are integrated by means of the most sophisticated orthodontic computer systems available.  From scheduling appointments to taking pictures and X-rays to financial functions, we have streamlined the process to make it as “hassle free” as possible.
  • We are open until Noon on Fridays. Have a pokey wire, need some wax, etc. before the weekend, we are here to take care of you. 
  • We have a new, high-tech digital X-ray machine that is one of the most advanced machines available today.  Digital X-rays significantly reduce radiation to the patient while eliminating environmentally hazardous waste that results from developing traditional film based X-rays.  
  • Dr. Fullerton monitors your progress at each and every visit. He believes in placing each and every bracket.  He also personally reviews all diagnostic data to formalize the best treatment options for you or your children.
  • We use the latest treatment technology available.  What does this mean for you?  More efficient tooth movement using very light forces, less discomfort, fewer appointments, fewer extractions of permanent teeth, fewer expanders, no headgear and shorter overall treatment times. Our goal, utilizing this new technology, is to achieve a beautiful broad smile with enhanced facial balance.  We are happy to show you documented photographs of what this new technology has done for orthodontics and what it can mean for you.
  • We follow the guidelines established by the American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control.  We routinely monitor our sterilization equipment to assure all our sterilization procedures are current
  • Parents are always welcome in our treatment area.  We believe in communication with our parents and even have chairs in the treatment area for our parents to sit with their children, if desired.  
  • We want to treat your child in the most efficient way possible, at the optimal age for their particular problem and in the least amount of time. We are happy to monitor your child on a 6 to 12 month basis and communicate with you so that the appropriate and best time to start treatment can be determined for your child.
  • We are committed to finishing your treatment on time. With your help and cooperation, we try very hard to honor the total time commitment that you were given when you started your orthodontic treatment.
  • Many in our dental professional community have given us the privilege of treating themselves, their spouses and their children.  This is the highest compliment we can receive, when other professionals in our field trust us with their loved ones! 
  • We let our results do our advertising.  Our patients’ beautiful smiles and great experiences say it all.  Instead of using our marketing budget for extravagant ads in magazines and newspapers, we choose to invest in our community, support our patients, and constantly improve our facility for our patients’ enjoyment. We feel that our patients are our best advertisement.
  • Our fees are consistently in line with the average fee for our region. This is according to the latest data in the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics.
  • As a courtesy, we file your insurance for you and accept payment directly from your insurance company.  We also offer several different payment options.  

In summary, orthodontic treatment is a gift to your child or yourself that will have a lifelong effect! We hope that you have found this information helpful and would love to have you join our family of patients.  We invite and encourage you to talk with other families who have chosen our office for their orthodontic needs and ask them about their experience in our office. It would be a privilege for our entire team to provide for your child or yourself the beautiful, totally awesome smile that you are seeking.  Hopefully you sense the excitement and enthusiasm that we have for all the benefits that modern orthodontics has to offer!  We will work very hard to make sure that your treatment is a positive experience, and your orthodontic treatment is provided in a fun, caring, and efficient manner!
