Why Choose Us?

Dr. Matthew Ames and Dr. Daniel Peterson,
Specialists in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

We strongly believe in the power of orthodontics to change lives, but how we get there is up to you. We want you to know that you have options. Whether it is the timing of your treatment or the tools we use to get there, we carefully tailor your patient experience to your goals and preferences. Whether you would like to geek out with us over the latest research in the field, or prefer to know more about the lifestyle aspects of your treatment options, we believe in giving you straight talk rather than a sales pitch, and allowing you to choose your own orthodontic adventure.

Dr. Ames and Dr. Peterson believe in a patient-centered, evidence-based approach to orthodontics. This means that while their practice is guided by established research data and practical experience, they recognize that your orthodontic treatment is driven by YOU as the patient: your goals, tastes, beliefs and lifestyle.

We have a warm and caring team of dental assistants and hygienists who are extremely expert in their field. More than half of our team has worked with us for five years or more, so our team knowledge base is extensive! From the clinical chair to our reception areas or our business office, the service you receive at all points in your experience with us is five-star and friendly. Our goal is to live up to our “ortho superhero” status every day!
