The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children are seen by age 7

Ortho For Children and Teens

The primary benefit of having an orthodontic evaluation by an orthodontist, by age 7, is the opportunity to monitor development of your child’s teeth.  This allows Dr. John to maximize growth and eruption patterns and treatment options for your child.

Although age 7 is recommended, children age 8-11 can benefit from an orthodontic evaluation by raising awareness of possible future problems that we may need to monitor.

Awareness and a proactive approach today leads to increased treatment options and a more optimal outcome for tomorrow

With our younger Patients, only more severe problems need treatment,
mild issues can wait until the teenage years.

Dr. John recommends the same treatment for your child as his own child

We all want the best for our children – to give them the tools to be confident, successful, healthy and happy. Dr. John is a regional expert in child & teen orthodontics and has had his work published in the American Journal of Orthodontics. More importantly, he is a proud father of four children, two of whom are his Patients as well. When you bring your child to Dr. John, you can be confident that he makes the same treatment recommendations for your child as he does for his own children.

The staff always makes us feel comfortable & welcome. They are very informative on everything and really helped make my 7 year old son feel confident & happy with his new braces.

We don’t feel rushed or like the staff is rushing to get done, they make sure everything is perfect & that we are comfortable while they work!

are saying about their kid’s treatment

I have had two children go through orthodontic treatment with Warford Orthodontics, and I can not find enough good things to say. They are knowledgeable, and take the time to explain everything to the Patient and family. They were flexible with appointment times, and they helped with finding a payment plan that worked for us. I highly recommend getting orthodontic services with them!
