Over the decades that I have practiced orthodontics with children and adults, I have consistently encountered one principle that now guides my patient care above all else: so many of the health and dental problems that are seen in adults could have been prevented if they had been recognized and intercepted as a child. That is why I started Martin Kids Dental. If children can be monitored from birth by experts in growth and development they understand that what we see in the mouth is a result of what is going on in the body, then your child will be happier and healthier. Proper dental care and orthodontic care can positively impact your health for life. We see it every day as orthodontist in Gainesville, FL and Chiefland, FL, and dentist in Gainesville, FL. If you are seeking orthodontic care for yourself, your child, or another loved one, we offer advanced technology and treatment options for the most comfortable and effective orthodontic experience available today. If you are a parent seeking dental care for your child, you can also count on a positive, fun, and child-centered environment in our Gainesville dental office. Your child's comfort and sense of security is as important to us as their dental health! Treatments such as metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, Invisalign Teen or early orthodontic treatment can certainly give you a great-looking smile. However, these aesthetic benefits are secondary to a far more critical goal in orthodontics: jaw alignment that promotes a healthy bite and unobstructed breathing. At Martin Kids Dental, I and my team work closely with you to ensure that your treatment gives you a smile that boosts both your confidence and your long-term health.
