Our Products Are Made In The USA
Raised in a family supported by the Detroit auto industry, both doctors value the importance of American-made products. As a result of this, we are proud to say that our braces are made in the USA! The products that we use are at the forefront of comfort and technology, allowing us to offer our patients the very best in orthodontic care. We could not be happier to support American workers and American factories!
No Invisalign Surcharge

Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of clear removable aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. They may look like retainers, but each aligner shifts your teeth slightly following a custom treatment plan mapped out by the doctors. When you change the sequential aligners, your teeth gradually move into position without braces.

We believe in offering our patients choices in their treatment, and we want you to choose what is right for you. Most offices charge more for Invisalign treatment. If you are seeking Invisalign, we will provide that at no additional cost.

Education

Training makes all the difference. When looking for orthodontic care, there are many options, but not all outcomes are equal. Treatment outcomes are only as good as the person directing them.

Dr. Aaron is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Harvard University. These institutions continuously rank as two of the best in the country and in the world for dentistry and orthodontics.

As students, the doctors took a special interest in research and both received master’s degrees in Orthodontics. Dr. Aaron’s research focused on bone stem cell biology, for which he was awarded the prestigious Milo Hellman Award. This award was established by the American Association of Orthodontists and recognizes original research that provides significant value to the field of orthodontics.

Dr. Aaron are certified Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics, the highest national level of certification an orthodontist can achieve.
