Do I need a referral to see an orthodontist?

No. You can arrange a consultation without your dentist's referral however we will ask you to see your dentist for a checkup prior to any treatment if it has been a little while since you have last seen them. If you do not have a dentist, we will happily provide you with some convenient options. We have a large number of well respected and caring colleagues who can look after your general dental needs.
Why Braces?

While you may only be thinking about the attractiveness of a beautiful smile, there are actually many other benefits to straight teeth. In fact, there are enough to make you think that a gorgeous smile is nothing more than a pleasant side effect of orthodontic treatment.

With straight teeth, you can bite, chew and speak more effectively. Properly aligned teeth and jaws not only contribute to healthier teeth and gums, they may even alleviate or prevent physical health problems. And let's face it; teeth that work better tend to look better. An attractive smile is a wonderful asset to display. It contributes to your self-confidence and your self-image, which are important qualities at any age.

With the health benefits, a pleasing appearance and more self-confidence, orthodontic treatment gives people a lot to be happy about. Let our expertise make you smile.

What Sets Us Apart

Our goal is to provide the highest quality and most advanced orthodontic care in a friendly, pleasant atmosphere to our patients and their families. We want to acquaint you with some of the factors that determine high quality orthodontic services:

Individualized Treatment Planning: No two patients need the exact same orthodontic treatment. Some orthodontic problems are minor in nature and some are quite severe. In our office, the treatment plan is tailored specifically to each patient's individual needs using the most current computer imaging programs available.

Highest Quality Materials and Most Advanced Technology: The quality of the braces, wires and appliances used can differ. We use only the highest quality and most advanced materials, such as heat activated wires, and Temporary Anchorage Devices in order to give you the very best orthodontic treatment available.

Latest Treatment Techniques: In addition to advancements in orthodontic materials, new treatment techniques are always being developed to improve both quality and efficiency in treatment. Our orthodontic team, including both the doctor and staff, attend continuing education courses and lectures by world-renowned speakers to keep up to date with the latest treatment techniques.

Digital Imaging: Digital facial and intraoral photographs allow us to plan, explain and discuss treatment with our patients and their families. Our use of digital radiography allows us to treat patients faster and more efficiently, with the lowest possible radiation exposure necessary. Digital radiography is also more environmental-friendly, because traditional film developing and processing chemicals are no longer necessary.

Temporary Anchorage Devices: TADs are a revolutionary technique that combines the tremendous benefits of implant technology and orthodontics. They are special titanium fixtures that allow orthodontists to move teeth in ways that have never been possible before. TADs may be used in certain cases to provide better or faster treatment plans that would be otherwise not possible.

Clear or Colored Appliances: We have a number of different colors to choose from to put on your braces. These colors can be changed at each visit. Alternatively, clear ceramic brackets are much less noticeable than traditional braces. Your retainers can also be made in an infinite variety of designs and colors.

Invisalign: Wearing braces may be holding you back from the smile you've always wanted. Fortunately, there's good news! Invisalign is a state-of-the-art alternative to braces that is practically undetectable to others. Invisalign straightens your teeth without the usual brackets and wires, but with a series of clear, removable appliances called aligners customized individually to each patient.

Oral Hygiene Program: Orthodontic appliances require meticulous attention to good oral hygiene. Excellent brushing technique, flossing with orthodontic appliances, and fluoride rinses are all parts of our oral hygiene program. This not only reduces dental decay but also decalcification or "white spots" on your teeth. Our staff will assist you to achieve excellent oral hygiene.

Your First Visit

Your first visit begins with a complimentary exam. This will give you the opportunity to meet Dr. Lee and his team of professionals as well as learn about orthodontics and the individualized treatment Dr. Lee recommends for you or your family member.

We are always excited about meeting new patients. Your initial complimentary appointment will consist of two X-rays, intraoral photographs and a thorough examination. This important visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic impressions for study models.

Dr. Lee can then answer any questions about treatment you may have during the initial examination with the use and careful analysis of the diagnostic records and the examination of the patient. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

We are committed to providing our patients with quality orthodontic treatment plans that can fit into everyone's budget. We offer flexible financing options including automatic check and credit card debit, paying online, Care Credit®, and we accept most insurance plans.

If you are would like to schedule your complimentary exam with Dr. Lee, please call (325) 695-2040. We are ready to get to know you and make you a part of the Lee Orthodontic family!

Orthocare Observation Program

Lee Orthodontics Orthocare Observation Program

 A check-up at age 7 gives Dr. Lee the opportunity to recommend the appropriate treatment at the appropriate time. Just like going to the Dentist every 6 months for cleanings and check-ups, you should come to Lee Orthodontics to ensure proper growth and development. If early treatment is needed Dr. Lee can achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing. If Dr. Lee decides you are not quite ready for braces, then you will be put into the Lee Orthodontics Kids Club, given a patient rewards card, a t-shirt, and a Lee Orthodontics Kids Club bag.
