The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children be screened by an orthodontist by age 7. Although treatment at this age is rare, preventing problems early may be more effective and less costly than waiting until adolescence. You do not need a referral from a dentist to schedule your first complimentary exam.

I recently returned to Dr. Magness for a broken retainer. I was a patient of Dr. Magness when I had braces nearly 15... years ago and I have nothing but positive memories. So, when my retainer broke, I didn't think twice about which orthodontist to go see.Booking an appointment at this office was incredibly simple and can be done entirely online. In addition, all forms were completed prior to arrival - which made getting in and out of the office a very smooth process. The office is welcoming and all of the staff members are very friendly.The best thing about Dr. Magness is how personable he is. When I first sat down, he asked me to fill him in on what I've been up to since I'd seen him last. It means a lot to me that he cares about his patients on a personal level - even patients he hasn't seen in 15 years!Although Dr. Magness was just seeing me for a quick retainer fix, he made me feel just as important as his other patients. He's very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what caused my retainer to break, and what I can expect going forward.In the future, if I need to see an orthodontist for any reason big or small, I will without a doubt be returning to Dr. Magness's office!read more
