Our Practice

Barron-Waiting-Room

Our Mission

At Barron Orthodontics, our mission is to provide our patients with the highest quality, personalized orthodontic care delivered in a comfortable, friendly and state of the art setting.

Barron-Treatment-Area

Privacy

Our orthodontic office is unique in that our clinical area is designed with partitioned, private treatment areas rather than the usual “open-bay” layout with several chairs side-by-side, common to most orthodontic offices.

Barron-Cosulting-Room

State of the Art Technology

We employ the latest technologies including the Damon System of low friction/ low force braces that move teeth in novel ways, in shorter treatment times with less discomfort. We also utilize the latest digital radiography and diagnostic software which helps us to establish appropriate, personalized treatment plans for each of our patients.
