Love Your Smile
It takes as little as two visits for your smile to noticeably improve with orthodontics. And the end result is worth the wait!
Our results speak for themselves.
From our role in the Blue Springs and Independence communities to the clinical results of our Kansas City area orthodontics practice, we are proud of the work we do. We have learned that straighter teeth means more than just a confident smile.
Comfortable, fast, and affordable.
Did you know it can take as little as two visits for some of your teeth to visibly realign?

Dr. Elrod and Dr.Ward... worked together to make sure I was comfortable and always kept me in the loop of there meetings. The staff worked with me so I could always have the same doctor when I came in. Even though I picked later in life to get my teeth done they always assured me and worked with me in every way. I’m VERY HAPPY I WAITED LATER IN LIFE. MY parents never talked about me getting braces and I didn’t think I needed braces until I was older so I was very self conscious and they both made me feel comfortable at all times. The staff at both places were VERY PROFESSIONAL AND I GOT TO KNOW THEM ALL LIKE FAMILY! Dr.Elrod / Dr.Ward best of the best another ten!!!read moreAmanda House Rogers01:21 26 May 19Great customer service, great and honest treatment plans.Yungjing Snell14:36 28 Apr 19Thank you for the wonderful journey past couple years!
