Orthodontics (Braces)

Dr. Donley was trained in orthodontics at the United States Dental Institute. This was a five year program. He has taken a number of courses to update his training since the original program. Dr. Donley is not a certified specialist (orthodontist).

Your children deserve...

  • Broad Beautiful Smiles

    Mouth breathing can cause narrow arches and unattractive smiles. By using functional appliances while children are actively growing, we can help them achieve a broad, beautiful smile.

  • Healthy Jaw Joints

    Many children with narrow jaws, deep overbites, or receding lower jaws have unhealthy jaw joints which can cause: headaches, neck pain, dizziness, earaches or ringing in ears, fainting, clicking or locking jaws, or difficulty opening jaws.
    Early use of functional appliances can prevent or eliminate these problems.

  • To Breathe Freely

    Mouth breathing can lead to orthodontic problems as well as other problems, such as lack of oxygen and poor sleep habits. This leaves children prone to daytime fatigue, an inability to concentrate in school, and headaches.

  • An End to Ear Pain

    Deep overbites and receding lower jaws may cause earaches, stuffiness, or ringing in the ears. If infection has been ruled out, functional appliances can eliminate these sypmtoms effectively.

  • Facilitated Speech Development

    Narrow jaws can confine the tongue and interfere with normal speech. Functional appliances help ensure proper growth and greatly enhance a child's ability to speak normally.

  • Your Support

    Parents want the best for their children; straight teeth, properly sized jaws, straight profiles, and beautiful smiles.

    By treating problems early, you save money and may prevent the need for more extensive treatment in the future.
