Grow Up Smiling

Our Free Grow Up Smiling Program 

At Sugar Creek Orthodontics, we have made it easy to keep up with your child’s orthodontic needs with our Grow Up Smiling Program.

  2. We will offer guidance on necessary treatment and when your child needs them. 
  3. We will conduct yearly checkups to monitor your child’s dental development. 
  4. We will work closely with your dentist to deliver comprehensive treatment that supports your child’s overall dental health. 

We want to say it again: these visits are free. Tending to your child’s orthodontic care is easy with Sugar Creek Orthodontics.

Why Should Your Child See an Orthodontist by Age 7?

The Association for American Orthodontics recommends that children see an orthodontist for an examination by age 7. The goal of this early assessment is to address issues such as misaligned or crowded teeth and bite abnormalities before they become worse. Doing so helps children and parents avoid the difficulties and stress of extensive orthodontic treatment

Whether your child’s seventh birthday is approaching or has already passed, get in touch with our office. We would gladly enroll them in our Grow Up Smiling program.
