Preventing Braces In Young Children
Our mission at Face ForWard Orthodontics is to provide patients with a wellness and orthodontic prevention program to maximize children’s growth and development with the goal of avoiding invasive procedures like extractions, headgear, and surgery and even braces or aligners! This is more about the JAWS than the teeth and starts with expecting moms, nursing babies, and focuses on children under 5 years old – it’s about children’s jaw growth, their rest oral posture, and how it affects their breathing. We take the time to engage the human beings attached to the teeth with holistic /wellness options including laser frenectomies on tongue/lip ties, Orthotropics-jaw growth guidance, and helping people be the best version of themselves they can be.
Care Far Beyond Straight Teeth
When it comes to children and interceptive treatment, it is about their JAW GROWTH (Not the teeth) and the teeth are merely along for the ride. Your child only gets one chance to grow and develop and then its done.
Our orthodontic prevention program aims to maximize your child’s genetic potential focusing the development of proper Rest Oral Posture, general posture, Nasal Breathing, and diet and lifestyle habits, all of which is affect how the jaw grow!

Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee
Your teeth are expected to shift and move throughout your lifetime. Without proper Rest Oral Posture (What we refer to as “Mother Nature”s Retainer!) and consistency in wearing your retainers after treatment (fulltime for the 1st 6 months then “nightime for lifetime”) your teeth will tend to move back towards their initial positions.
We understand that orthodontic treatment is a considerable investment. This is why we offer you a lifetime satisfaction guarantee for orthodontic treatment (YES, I said lifetime satisfaction guarantee!) If you ever require orthodontic treatment again, even if the re-treatment is necessary because you didn’t wear your retainers we will straighten your teeth again for FREE. No, you will never pay for the cost of braces twice in our office *
* You will only be responsible for paying for your new retainers, and any lab fees incurred if your treatment was with Aligners.
We Pay it Forward to Organizations in the Communities We Serve
Playing an active role in the community is great for everyone involved. Dr. Ward and his Teams have always made paying it forward to the community a priority. They have contributed over $187,000 in charitable donations since 2011. They have also contributed their time and care participating in “Give Kids a Smile” and Dentistry from the Heart.
