Gallatin Family Orthodontics

Confident Smiles of Every Size

Here at Shine Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we believe that age shouldn't determine the quality of your smile. Whether you're young, old, or somewhere in between, we have a customized treatment plan for you.

Orthodontics for Children

Dr. Mike and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation around age seven. This early assessment helps Dr. Mike monitor the development of teeth and jaws and identify any potential issues.

Phase I Orthodontic Treatment for Kids

In some cases, early treatment may be necessary to address developing orthodontic issues. Dr. Mike will explain the reasons behind this recommendation and discuss the available options with you and your child.

Our goal is to ensure your child's oral health and set them on the path to a lifetime of confident smiles.

Kid-Friendly Approach at Shine Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics

We understand that visiting the orthodontist can be intimidating for kids. That's why our team at Shine goes the extra mile to create a comfortable and child-friendly environment.

We take the time to explain procedures in a way that children can understand, helping your child feel actively involved in their orthodontic journey from day one.

Tailored Orthodontics for Teens

The teenage years are a common time for orthodontic treatment. At Shine Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Dr. Mike specializes in identifying and addressing issues related to crowding, spacing, and alignment during this critical developmental stage.

Diverse Treatment Choices for Teenagers

We offer a variety of treatment options for teenagers at our Gallatin practice. Teens can choose from Invisalign clear aligners, traditional metal braces, or clear ceramic braces.

Each option provides distinct benefits while helping transform your teenager's smile.

Guiding Growth Confidently

Teenagers' mouths have matured enough to support orthodontic appliances while accommodating natural growth.

Dr. Mike and our team at Shine Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics know just how to guide this growth towards amazing smiles. We're committed to ensuring your teenager's smile is both healthy and confident.

Active Participation in

We believe in involving teenagers in their orthodontic journey. We take the time to educate them about their treatment, what to expect, and how to maintain their oral health during this transformative time.
