Our Services


Braces that are made of high-grade stainless steel, are the most common type of treatment. Today’s braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever.


The Invisalign® System is a series of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. These removable trays gradually move the teeth into the desired location, no metal or wires involved! Invisalign® is available to teens and adult patients, based on their orthodontic needs.

Pediatric Airway Treatment

A constricted airway can severely impact the growth and development of a child. Dr. Bedoya evaluates every child to determine if they require pediatric airway treatment. Dr. Bedoya can expand the airway and often prevent obstructive sleep apnea and improve the child’s overall health.


A portion of the gums or soft tissue fold of the lips/tongue can be removed with a laser. Dr. Bedoya uses a Spectrum laser that is specific for orthodontics and is highly effective, causing no patient discomfort and superior healing.


During the main phase of orthodontic treatment, you and your orthodontist work hard to earn you a beautiful, straight smile. Safeguard that hard work by wearing your retainers. It is the best way to ensure that your straight new smile lasts a lifetime.

Before and After



“Who You Should Trust to Straighten Your Smile & Why”

“Today, more and more people are being convinced by their general dentists not to seek orthodontic treatment from a specialist, but entrust the treatment to them instead. By emphasizing that you’ll save time and money, dentists have built this into a very persuasive pitch. However, the cost of this convenience is quality. For the truth of the matter is that a general dentist holds general knowledge on dentistry, not the special kind of knowledge you want from the person charged with straightening your teeth and designing your smile…”



“Appreciate Dr. Bedoya & team who listen, care, and provide an incredible service as well as a comfortable experience during each visit. 10/10 would recommend.”
