Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gardner are Board-Certified specialists in orthodontics! This means they attended a 2.5-year residency beyond the 4 years of dental school. Both are members of the American Association of Orthodontists and limit their practice to orthodontics to concentrate and specialize in providing the very best care possible!
Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gardner have completed the rigorous study and exams required to become certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. They are among the small percentage of orthodontists in the United States to earn this degree of recognized excellence within the specialty. Taking the time and energy to become board certified demonstrates a desire to hold to excellent clinical standards.
We use the Damon bracket system, which is a self-ligating bracket that reduces friction and often treatment times.
At Kelley & Gardner Orthodontics, our staff takes great care and consideration to treat each patient as an individual. The team avoids a “cookie cutter” treatment approach where every patient receives the same treatment. Ask about Insignia Custom Smile Design.
Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gardner spend a lot of time with new patients going over their photographs and x-rays. This helps ensure that patients and parents have a complete understanding of their orthodontic needs. Our orthodontists then explains all of the treatment options and uses 3-D computer imaging to show how the treatments work.
We believe everyone deserves a perfect smile, and we want to help you achieve yours! To make things easier on you, we will review your insurance to help you determine the appropriate course of action to take. While orthodontic insurance can help pay for the cost of braces, not every dental plan includes it. We know that times can be tough and paying for braces can be difficult. Please ask us about our financing options, credit card payments, and bank drafts to accommodate your financial needs!
