Invisalign Braces - Sacramento's Elite ProvidersAs Super Elite Providers of Invisalign, we are the number one practice in the Sacramento area for experience and expertise in both Adult Invisalign and Invisalign for teens. If you are looking for Invisalign to straighten your teeth, our doctors treat most adults and almost 70% of teens with Invisalign.

While the doctors believe in seeing children for an initial complimentary consultation at age 7, we will make recommendations about early interceptive treatment only if absolutely necessary, otherwise, we will continue to monitor your child’s development free of charge and keep you updated on important milestones of their dental development.

We are totally paperless and digital and use only the most modern and up-to-date orthodontic products available. With our advanced scheduling system, we are able to see patients on time and complete treatment on time with your expectations met and often surpassed. Our scheduling coordinators are able to handle your last minute schedule changes and make sure you are well taken care of at each visit.
