If you are looking for an orthodontist who comes highly recommended from dentists and doctors, then you are in the right place. Our award-winning Denver orthodontist Dr. Derek Straffon frequently meets new patients who have been referred to us by their dentist, doctor, or another patient from Straffon Orthodontics. Meeting patients who have been referred to us is one of the greatest compliments we can receive. After all, a referral is essentially a way of saying that Dr. Straffon is the best Denver orthodontist! We cannot wait to meet you, so you can find out for yourself why our patients love to smile.
The first step to determining which type of braces you or your child may potentially need is to schedule your complimentary Dr. Straffon Smile Assessment. During your initial exam with Dr. Straffon, you will receive a complete orthodontic exam, digital photos, digital x-rays if needed, and a comprehensive treatment consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Straffon will discuss which – if any – treatment would be most appropriate for your individual medical and lifestyle needs.
If you are reading this page as a parent for your child’s treatment, you may be wondering at what age you should bring your child in for an initial exam with a Denver orthodontist. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child have an exam as early as the age of 7. While braces and orthodontic treatment may not start that early, the earlier we see your child, the more options we will have for treatment. Sometimes starting treatment earlier even means that it can require less time and be less invasive or expensive.
