High quality, great service

"It was our first experience at an orthodontic office and I can't imagine it going any better. The customer service was above and beyond from our initial call to the office, through our entire appointment. You could tell everyone loved working there and was there to help us as patients! Dr. McSurdy was very friendly, professional and efficient. The office answered all of our questions and my daughter was so excited the entire visit! They made it fun and she is really looking forward to getting her braces on in 2 wks and even has her colors picked out already for the bands. Thank you to the entire team for making our experience wonderful and would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a high quality practice!"

"Dr. McSurdy has a GREAT bedside manner. He explains everything that he is doing. All the office staff is very friendly...freely giving everyone a smile. The cost of the braces themselves was the best (lowest) compared to other offices in the area."

Why did Dr.McSurdy become an Orthodontist?

Mar 22

Why did I want to become an orthodontist? Well, my brother decided that he wanted to be a medical doctor at a very young age. At that time I was the little brother who followed my brother on whatever path he was on – good or bad! However, wanting to NOT be a copycat, I declared that I was going to be a dentist. This was at age 7. The idea struck me through high school so I met with my dentist and he led me through how to prepare for my future. It is said that the hardest step in building a career is the FIRST STEP. As author Andy Andrews says, “Make a decision, and then make it right.” In other words, I believe we are all divinely guided so I go with my gut feeling – my intuition. Dental school seemed like a good fit academically and…

Congenitally Missing Teeth – Dental Substitution

Nov 14

If your dentist informs you that your child has congenitally missing teeth, it is important to have an orthodontic consultation as soon as possible. This is especially true if there are missing front teeth. Why Should You Seek Orthodontic Assistance for Cogenitally Missing Teeth? Why is this so important? Often, orthodontically, we can substitute primary teeth into missing permanent teeth positions. Also, often we can move permanent canines into the missing incisor positions. In this manner, we can prevent your child from having noticeably missing tooth spaces, and we can help to normalize the emergence pattern of the permanent teeth. Getting Orthodontic Treatment For Your Teenager If your child is already a teenager, then orthodontically we idealize missing tooth spaces so that an appropriately ideally sized prosthodontic tooth can be placed by your dentist. In this way it is virtually undetectable that a missing tooth situation exists. An orthodontic consultation…
