Orthodontist in Clifton, NJ

LET’S GET BRACED… You’ve got a beautiful smile and at Dentistry for Children, we believe braces may help you really LOVE your smile.

Dentistry for Children, along with the American Academy of Orthodontics, recommends that your child receive their first orthodontic check by age seven. Dr. Rupali Shah can inspect your child’s tooth development and then can determine if there might be potential for future issues that may affect your child’s bite or tooth alignment. Addressing these issues while your child is still growing and developing may help save your child from having complex treatment plans once their adult teeth have emerged. This, of course, can also help save you time and money down the road. Serving Clifton, Bloomfield, and the surrounding areas.

1. Free Consultation

The orthodontist will take a look into your mouth and determine if your teeth need some help to be aligned. We will look for crowding and spacing that can’t get better over time.

2. Records Appointment

We will need to take important X-rays, intra-oral photos, and an impression of your mouth to assess the growth and development of your teeth and jaw. These images help the orthodontist see developing teeth and around the head.

3. Free Comprehensive Evaluation

Have a chat with the orthodontist to come up with a plan of action. We’ll be able to give you all the details of our findings from your records appointment. We will also discuss the length of treatment and any fees / insurance-related info.

What's Next?

There’s no pressure. When you want to move forward, we’d be happy to create a contract and setup your first appointment! Please keep in mind, Records are only valid for a maximum of 6 months from the date they were taken.
