Our successful treatment outcomes are largely attainable through the dedication of the doctors and team members.

We have designed our office and scheduling and treatment options to meet the specific needs of both children and adult patients. You will always receive prompt, around the clock attention regarding any aspect of your orthodontic experience, even at night and on weekends.
COMMITMENT TO CONTINUING EDUCATION AND TRAINING - Drs. Freedman and Haas are highly-trained orthodontic specialists who have completed rigorous orthodontic residencies. After completing their orthodontic fellowships, they instructed other orthodontic graduate students in an accredited orthodontic program. Both doctors are Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics and emphasize the importance of continuing education for both themselves and their staff. They frequently attend conventions, seminars, forums, post graduate courses and study groups to remain at the forefront of their field. They have also hosted distinguished professors and Damon® educators, such as Dr. Tom Pitts, at their practice for patient care review. When choosing your orthodontist, keep in mind that the experience and skill level of your orthodontist will directly affect the outcome of your treatment.
